Yes, it’s spring-ish here. I’m not holding my breath weather wise, we do live in Michigan and anything can happen. I know I haven’t updated my blog in a while but truthfully there hasn’t been much to update. Just going through life’s daily grind and trying to stay centered. Mr. Larj and I haven’t really seen a whole lot of each other lately. He’s been shuffling his time between 3 part time jobs (yes, 3). I have to say that he really deserves big props from me for keeping us solvent in these tough economic times. He has really been working his butt off. Last night was the exception to the rule, we actually had a “date night”, we went out for Sushi and stayed in for Martinis. At least I had Martinis, he thinks they’re gross. We started to watch a movie he made it half way through and went to bed. I finished it and then went to bed myself. A couple of boring old farts eh? But that’s life isn’t it? Whenever my patients give me a hard time telling me “I did this yesterday” I tell them that life is about repetition and we get up and pretty much do the same thing every day.
Knitwise I don’t feel like I’ve been getting crap done. I haven’t added anything new to the project list. I did however finish something!!! The feather and fan angora scarf is done. If your have the means, I highly recommend angora, it is totally decadent against the skin. I now fully understand Ed Wood’s obsession with it. As for other projects, I haven’t touched the Luna Moth shawl in weeks. and I picked up the Greenjeans cardi this morning only to discover that I started the sleeve with the wrong size dpns. So ribbit ribbit once again. I swear I cannot read that pattern to save my life. Lace, no problems this…..total knitlexia. I only frogged back to the last two rows of of where I started as I have picked up stitches and yarn over’s that I didn’t really feel like disturbing. I don’t think that two rows of knitting on size sevens versus a size eight will make that big of a difference in the finished (if I ever finish) cardi. I really feel like that thing is cursed.
Today is my big whopping one day off, however, next weekend I will have five….FIVE days off. Starting with Knitini night at HYAW and the next day it’s off to Royal Oak Tattoo for some more original art work. After that I need to catch up on some jewelry making. I am very surprised and happy that my Etsy store has stayed fairly consistent ever since the holidays. I really thought it would slow down but it hasn’t. Mind you I am not complaining, it’s a good thing.
Everyone have a great week.
