I'm a tolerant, understanding person. Live and let live and all that. But one thing I do not get and cannot stand to hear about is boredom. Seriously. "I'm bored," is fingernails on the blackboard of my being. You should be smacked for uttering the words. There isn't a single day I do all the things I need to do, much less all the things I WANT to do. There just aren't enough hours in the day. If you knit, you know what I'm talking about. So many yarns, so many stitch patterns--how can you ever, ever be bored when you can take needles and fiber and CREATE?
At this very moment, I'm trying to decide what to cast on next. I have a pair of socks due by the last day of the month for my SAM KAL (sock a month knit-along.) There are baby things I want to make, several gift blankets, and a test-knit coming soon. I have three UFOs on the needles and there would be a dozen more if I didn't practice a little self-restraint. I also have two patterns to finish writing up. And don't get me started on the canning I'd like to do while Colorado produce is in season, and the photos I want to take, and the books I want to read...
Boredom--what the hell is that?
Here's my latest FO:
There are pattern details on my Ravlery page. I'll reveal more in the future, but since this is a surprise, I can't say anything else right now.
I hope you're all enjoying your summer. Is it me or is it going by too fast? I haven't made even a single batch of mojitos yet!
