1. Time....... Seems I have lost all track of it lately. Where does it go? How can I get it back? These questions I ponder all the time. No joke intended here.
2. The blanket I am making my son is almost finished. But as I have no Time (please see above), I am unable to finish it. It is too big to take with me so I am restricted to knitting it at home. And while I am excited to be in the home stretch with just 1 and 1/3 skein left to go I am finding it hard to get to the finish line with this monster of a boring blanket. My youngest son wants one too, which I promptly replied when you are 16 you will get your blanket. Good that gives me 3 years.
3. See the picture above. Crochet. This is starting to be a problem for me. I said before I was casually cruising knitting blogs when I came across this heart. Which as you can see is not knitted it is crocheted. I tried it on a whim and made many hearts. Then I saw the cutest bat (as in Halloween) on Sweaterbabe.com. Of course I had to make it. I would show you a photo but I have given them all away.
I am pausing here to catch my breath before my confession continues. The pumpkin above was a gift from my friend Lynda. She totally "gets" my Halloween fascination and feeds into it on a regular basis.
So while my blanket is too big to tote around I decided to try my hand at making a pumpkin of my own design. Now I know I am not a crochet queen, but I think I did a pretty good job. I have made one for a friend, two for my mother-in-law, and one for my acupuncturist. Does it look like a pumpkin to you? Or do you think it is a bit silly? Sometimes when you make something you lose the ability to see it for what it is. Cute or silly?
