I'm pleased with my placing this year. 2 first in categories and a second overall is nothing to be disappointed about. But I am. Please don't mistake this next part for my being ungrateful or being bitter at the winner (I am not)- but DAMMIT I want to win. And so, because I'm really just a hyper competitive spirit disguised as your average every day mother, I'm already plotting, already researching and already trying to think what I can do to be first overall next year. (So far I'm not getting very far... ) So, yes, brace yourself because I'm probably going to be obsessing for the next 11.5 months on what I'm going to do next year. And after 7 (8?) years of blogging I think it's clear I'm FIRST OVERALL when it comes to obsessing over things.
While I plot my next big thing, I'm knitting little, simple things.
A child-less trip to Vail (for a wedding) over July 4 weekend meant that I brought the sock out of hiding and enjoyed having airplane time to knit. This has got to be a record for the longest it's every taken me to finish a plain and simple sock! (Started back in JANUARY!)
Just 2 rows to remember and fingering weight yarn make this is an ideal project to knit over the summer. Light and easy- a well deserved break from the agony I experienced with the mittens.
So stay tuned to see what else I'm whipping up and adding to the "finished" pile.
