Actually, I’m too busy knitting to do much else! For example, yesterday I awoke at 5:00 AM to knit and drink coffee until 8:00; then, exercise, shower, check emails, cleanup the kitchen, start the laundry. Knit again until 3:00 with lunch nibbles when getting to “home row” on Magic Loop socks. I made a quick trip into Apple Yarns in Bellingham with a few errands along the way and helped mattress stitch the seams of an afghan for a charity auction. Then back home again to knit until 10:30 PM. I quit when I fell asleep with my knitting in hand — in the middle of a stitch!
I guess I’m making progress on all my holiday gift knitting, but I really need to see some finished products soon!! I currently have the foot and toe to go on a second sock; the outer mitten of the second lined mitten; two sleeves to go on a sweater; the ribbing done on a brioche stitch hat so I can take a class to learn the stitch so I can make a brioche cowl for a gift (how’s that for convoluted!!); yarn, needles and patterns ready to go for two other hats; and a big box of yarn ready to wrap with a promise!
And I must somewhere find time for cleaning, decorating, baking, shopping, wrapping and who knows what else!! Oh! and taking my granddaughter to the American Girl doll store to get Kaya’s hair fixed and have a tea party!
All in the next 44 days! YIKES! 44 DAYS — I love it!
