You know the stealth project I told you about? It’s killin’ me. I now have 680 stitches on my 60 inch needle. I’m half way. Every night I take my knitting to bed with me. (How romantic!) I want to go to sleep, but I keep thinking, “If I could just finish one more repeat of that chart”. My eyes are going to match the streak in my hair pretty soon.
What’s the rush? I have no idea. I’m just so excited about it and it’s going to be so gorgeous. So therefore, I must not sleep! I feel like this.
“Oh, this sun is so warm. I’m so relaxed. I must stay awake. Maybe I could just close my eyes for a second. I’m tipping over.”
I can show you the other moron project I’m going to work on at some point. Remember this?
I’m making this:
It’s the Swedish Heart-Warmer Shawl from Handknit Holidays. I’m using three colors of Lightweight Socks that Rock. The purple is Colinette Jitterbug. On the edge of the photo is what I have done. Size one needles. I must be crazy. I ordered a 60 inch needle for this too. Yikes!
Speaking of crazy, I guess all I have to do to get a ton of comments is to do something crazy with my hair. Thanks to everyone that refrained frome commenting and asking me if I’m having a mid-life crisis. I’m not. I just thought it seemed like a good idea at the time. Actually, I still think it was a good idea. I like it. My hero does not. I think he’s just jealous. If he was going for a pink streak, he’d have to use a marker!
So, for all of you that commented, I dare you!!! We could start a red streak club! Send me a photo and I’ll add it to the blog!
Time to fire up Mom’s taxi. Dreamboy has ski club. Super Blonde is at driver’s ed. I took Ms In Charge to the doctor this morning. I guess it’s just a virus. And Frankie is just sad because all the snow is melting. No more kid snowmoble for him. And this weekend? I found out I have to make four poodle skirts, not three. After that, there’s the stealth project. And just a little sleep. Please?
