I’m such a slacker but this week has been busy around here. In 100 degree heat, I don’t want to do much of anything. After returning from Michigan, I have been in super-slacker mode. At first I thought the trip would be helpful because sometimes you just need some time to unwind to be more productive. That seems to not be the case, as soon as I returned home I felt immediately overwhelmed again. Usually, blogging is my escape but I need a certain amount of personal space to put my thoughts together and write something as well. Unfortunately, my situation is such that I don’t have that personal space at this time so I haven’t been able to write much. I feel like when I write like this, it sucks, and doesn’t make sense.
I could do picture posts, but that requires more creativity than I can muster right now too. It seems like there are constantly people in this house, and for me, being creative requires some space. Truthfully, I don’t even like to knit something with a bunch of people around: I’m inevitably going to get my concentration broke and screw up the pattern. I know this wouldn’t happen if I just stuck to garter or stockinette stitch things but mostly, I knit lace and stuff. Socks are a good social knit. This is what I’ve been working on for my cousin’s birthday. As you can see from the picture, I lost the center stitch and ended up frogging all of it this section.
Pattern: Haurni by Emily Ross. Yarn used: Stardust by Red Heart.
