That is one of the most difficult things for me to do. Remain calm in face of upheaval, or even just a bump in the road. I am trying to not be so excitable, but it’s hard. But I refuse to keep calm in the face of new yarn, new patterns, or new anything knit related. And then I just want to cast on ALL THE THINGS!!!! Which is where I am at this season. I can’t remember when it has ever been this bad.
After finishing the blanket and Scoreboard scarf last week I am trying to cast on anything and everything to fill the void. OK, so maybe the other baby blanket, my sweater, and my cabled wrap should have been focused on? Nope, I cast on a pair of fingerless mitts at the football game. The yarn is leftover from my Miss Dashwood. Love that shawl! Hated the knitting of that shawl! These are for Diva Girl.
Pattern: Passport Mitts
Yarn: Mad Tosh Sport in Antler
Then Sunday morning I needed a hat to work on, so Saturday night at the hockey game I cast on Barley.
Pattern: Tincan’s Barley
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease
The yarn is leftover from some sweaters I made for some little cousins. They are knit in the round and then steeked to separate.
And now I must beg for your generosity. Can someone buy me a new Mac Book, please!!! Mine finally bit the dust. The screen was separating from it’s housing and finally over the weekend it decided to no longer show me the goods. So now I am using this Acer piece of ….. junk that was College Girl’s first laptop. As you can see the paragraphs have now shifted, no longer justified to the edge. I can’t get it to correct that! And for no reason at all it will start scrolling and popping up new windows. I can’t get those “awesome” time saving functions to stop!!!! I will tell you to scroll when I want you to scroll! I will open a new window when I want to! And don’t get me started on the relearning the click pad. Now I have to use left and right clicks instead of keystroke shortcuts. Gah! But a new Mac is months away!! MONTHS! OK, enough of my whining. It doesn’t become me, instead I will focus on the bounty before me. A warm house, shelter from the rain, a full belly, a loving family, two precious pups, all I could ever need at my disposal. I am truly blessed!!
