Shoot guys, I just "can't" seem to get on here and blog! For some reason - if I don't have pictures I feel like there is really no point in writing an entry.
My good friend Nancy over at Bird's Nest Knits said it best....
A blog is a lot like weeding your garden. A little maintenance here and there and it looks lovely. But sometimes, life gets in the way, work gets a little busy, the needles start to get dusty, and you realize that you haven't knit a full row in over a month. You start to forget how much pleasure the delicate stitches gave you, and the comfort a tube of stockinette could provide. The effort of picking up an unfinished object to figure out where you'd left off weeks and weeks ago seems too much trouble. You become ashamed. Reluctant. The excuse that posting with so little knitting to show for yourself gets in the way of actually writing anything.
If you let it go, a week maybe four, ten minutes of pulling the odd weed here and there turns into a full days work usually involving a machete, the neighbor's weed wacker and 911 on speed dial in case either gets a little out of control. This is where I find myself. A backyard filled with 6 foot tall weeds without a machete in sight and the only thing to do my much needed maintenance with is a butter knife.
Thank you Nancy for saying EXACTLY what I need to say here.
So that is where I am folks. However I have been knitting, and I'm on the last few inches of finishing a sweater. Of course I still have to sew it all together (still not to confident about that part).
I'll be in San Diego and Palm Springs starting tomorrow YEE HAW! If you are going in on Saturday to Knitting in La Jolla - I just might be there. Also the following Friday I FOR SURE will be there for Kristi's class and to hang with my girls. Suzanne and Lisa here I come!
Ok, folks. I promise, after April 5th there will be better blogging going on AND pictures!
And, that is all she wrote (even though there wasn't very much of it today).
PS. Sheena--- my friend. I miss you and please know I'm not dead. Things just got crazy here. I sooo wish I could have seen you when you were here!
