and no good reason, apart from returning to routine (blech), trying to put the house in some semblance of tidy after a summer spent largely outside (pee-yew), and just general I-can't-believe-it's-the-last-day-of-summer malaise (sigh).
I have been knitting - of course - working on a brown ruffled shrug for Cindy at Apple Laine
That was an early-stage pic - I am much further along but my camera doesn't want to play right now...
I am also in the end stages of another Lake Placid pullover for Artisan Knitworks
(again, picture was taken earlier)
And I have three projects from the LYS, Spun, to finish for them.
But what about ME???
My poor little head is abuzz with everything I want to make for myself - NOW - and I keep finding more - I almost feel sick thinking about all the potential projects, and then I keep finding more, and feel even sicker...
I can't even try to list the things I am thinking of, because I really do get panicky and out of breath - for God's sake, it's knitting, it's supposed to be fun...
I did learn something interesting today which is non-knit related - I was pulling out a sweet potato vine from one of my front pots - it's done well, but is now deserving of a quiet burial...
know what I found at the end of the vine?
I really had no idea that you could grow potatoes on potato vines - I just thought that was the name of the plant - I was thrilled, so much so that I interrupted a neighborhood game of HAGS (hide and go seek - their acronym, not mine) to show my sons and their friends -
apparently their friends think I'm weird now - I gather they didn't before, which was yet another revelation.
But I think I blew it this time.
