I feel busy busy busy and I've been concentrating on establishing structure throughout the week. A rhythm if you will.
It's so easy for me to get swept up in whatever project I've taken on. Rarely the projects actually have a pressing deadline. Most times I develop a sense of urgency for no real reason and priorities go out the window.
So I've been all over the place.
Exhibit A. My Mom gave be this beautiful Manos del Uraguay yarn for Christmas and I have the perfect amount to make a sweater for Everett. It is so buttery to work with. I wanted to try my hand at developing a custom chart design and well, making a motif that works with variegated yarns proved to be more of a challenge.
Exhibit B. I dyed this old quilt top black because I really couldn't stand it before. I'd throw it away, but it might be the very first quilt top I ever made using the discards from my Mother's stash back when I was in high school or first year university. So I still have it, and it's not black enough yet for me... though it looks better.
Exhibit C. Wanting desperately for instant gratification, I grabbed this book, Odd Ball Knitting, off the new arrivals shelf at the library. Pictured here is a simple sachet that I intend to send off as a gift for a certain niece. (It's nearly complete...)
I guess I'll just wait and see if I can get over this crafty rush. Never mind my new addiction to the Alaska Multiple Listing Service.
