I’ve been so busy lately. I picked up an extra shift last weekend so I hadn’t had a whole day off since January 9th until yesterday. Sometimes I think all of this work amounts to pounding sand. I am paid weekly (and we need it, so it’s not optional) but I have such little time for myself.
Gabriel and I went to Costco to pick up some things. We got back, unpacked and put away and I got to do a teensy bit of reading, I downloaded all of my fiction cohorts’ pieces for my TWSO program, and tooled around on Ravelry to see if I could find a simple scarf pattern to do the Madeleine Tosh BFL sock yarn I got as part of the Holiday Yarn Club justice.
I haven’t knitted anything in ages, so because I’m a bit rusty with the needles it had to be simple. Since I don’t have a lot of time to knit, the pattern had to be one I can more or less mindlessly do anywhere I take it.
I found a pattern that is both pretty and simple. It’s knitting up lacier than the images included with it because it looks like I’m using a finer yarn and larger needles but it looks lovely so far. (Or maybe it’s because I knit more loosely.) The Fir Wreath colorway is really pretty.
Did this little bit last night while watching a movie with the kids. It’s not tons but it felt really good in my hands and I realized just how much I missed doing it.
