(Do not be fooled by this photo- my mother did the lions share of sewing this year... she deserves "working hard" credit!)
and planning Parker's (also awesome!) birthday in Novemember and my brain is saying "NOPE" to knitting.
I have made some mitten progress, which I guess does count for something...
The good news is that I'm worried that I'm going to run out of yarn. And while this is actually bad news for ME- it's good news for blog fodder because when I'm faced with somewhat sketchy yardage I tend to dig in and knit so I don't have to wait too terribly long to find out how doomed I am. This is either going to be one of those photo finishes where there is actually very little in the way of leftovers or a blog post with a lot of wailing while I lament what I'm going to do because there isn't enough. (oh please knitting gods... let there be enough...)
If I can get the mittens done I can start on some easier mittens for the 2 aides in Parker's class. (I have decided that teachers get faire isle mittens, aides get cable-y mittens...) I actually think those might get the 'ole brain back in it when it comes to finding my mojo so let's hope I can start working on those soon.
I've also managed to squeak out another hat to add to the totals so I suppose this loss of knitting mojo hasn't been a total productivity failure.
In the meantime- while I sort of just survive October/early November- I give you a pic of a recent purchase I made that simply MUST BE OWNED BY ME.
So there's where I'm at today. Kind of bouncing around to a bunch of different things and places. If you think of it- send me a little mitten mojo that I have enough yarn? That would really help keep propelling the progress forward.
