Finally, I had the camera, my yarn and a few minutes to prove I’ve been doing something!
The baby blanket done with Pixie. So ultra soft, I can’t come up with good descriptive words for this little blanket. As most of my projects, this one is on my Denice needles…..which I love. I’ve had them so long, and use them so much, the little storage case is starting to fall apart.
This is the blanket where I learned I could not count! I’m doing the diagonal blanket, but when I got to the widest part, instead of thinking…………..I just kept knitting. And, knitting. Finally, I had a sane moment and realized, it wasn’t getting any smaller; I was not decreasing each row! Duh. It is now back on track and I had time to get a couple rows knit today. Aiming for the finish line by Friday of this week!
I was thinking about mindless knitting today. I’ve often called this type of knitting my ‘idiot knitting’. Projects I can do without having to count or think, and the world won’t end if I have to stop and handle something here at home. (with the exception of the counting problem on the baby blanket I usually manage pretty well).
Today was a pretty mixed up day here. One foster kiddo moving out, bio mom here at the house for what seemed like ages…. Foster kiddo up by 4:45AM as he was pretty wound up……….so my day started EARLY! Major cleaning required before moving foster kiddo #2 into the bigger permanent room, and oddly enough, a regular alterations client here for an appointment this afternoon. I needed some zen type knitting time!
Knitting is good for me. It makes me sit quietly, I feel productive and I’m always reminded to just take a moment to relax. It worked today. I’m tired, but all’s well.
I’m not getting up before 5AM tomorrow, no matter what!
