Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Same Old Thing


It’s the same old thing! I should be cleaning up messes. I’d rather be knitting and quilting.

So today I knit. Kid 2 got her cast off. I had lots of time sitting in the doctors office. So I worked on my Lace and Diamond Socks. I’m using Reynolds Sea Wool.

Obviously I didn’t get a pedicure at the spa.

Did you know that it’s human nature to want what you can’t have? I can’t get in my sewing room right now because there’s a guy in there. Don’t worry. He’s just putting in my wood floor. So what do I do? Haul my sewing machine, ironing board, and assorted junk to the dining room. Crap! That means I just created another mess.

This is what I cut out today:

Doesn’t that look like fun???

Now I’m going to have to sew all day tomorrow so I can get at my countertop. Shoot!

But before I start sewing, I have to run to the grocery store (at 10 PM) because we’re out of bread and milk!

  1. We are always out of milk. 7:00 AM is my time of choice for such fun errands.

  2. I’m so good at creating messes it isn’t even funny. I pick them up and 3 hours later they’re propigating again, just like grocery sacks do!

  3. surely that much fabric on that length of table is trick photography???

  4. Those quilt pieces are dreamy!!! Can’t wait to see what unfolds.

  5. Okay. I admit it. I’d rather do laundry than address all those we pieces of fabric. I’m sure that in time you’ll convert me, but for now… you just have yourself a grand old time with that. I’ll be over here knitting.

    Do you always knit 2 socks on the circ? I am knitting my first 2 at a time on a 40″circ. and feel like all I do is fight with the cord.
    I love the quilt pieces- makes me want to clean off the cutting table!

  7. that is one long dining room table! Looks like you were feeling patriotic.
