Those of you who are regular readers of this blog know that I definitely have Knitter’s ADD. I have absolutely no problem frogging something when either boredom hits or the project just doesn’t seem right. The latest victim – the Jamieson and Smith afghan. I do love this pattern, but it just doesn’t suit the yarn. It needs something in color – soft and heathery and all wool. The wool/acrylic Encore in off white just wasn’t hacking it. In addition, I had originally thought I needed this for my “mindless knitting” project, but that wasn’t working either. It was so mindless that the thought of 5 1/2 more feet of it was enough to enduce catatonia. Not that I won’t want to do it later, but definitely not in off white! So. rethinking things, I returned to the pattern that I originally bought the yarn for – The Great American Aran Afghan. Now, this is definitely not mindless knitting, but because it’s done in squares, there’s always a little “finishing high” coming really soon. I need that right now. The first square:
Yes, that’s the ticket – amost immediate gratification. This was my reward for not squirting blood out of my eyeballs this week. (See previous post if that one throws you for a loop!).
On the school front, I took my psychology midterm this morning. It was pretty hard, but I think I did ok. And, it means the class is half over. The statistics midterm will come next week, and I will really celebrate the halfway mark on that one.
Not much else to tell – my life has pretty much consisted of studying, studying and more studying this week, with a little work thrown in there. Next weekend hubby and I are going to get away for the weekend to celebrate our 32nd anniversary! We’ve lived here for 26 years and have never been over to Hurricane Ridge, so we’re going there. There are supposed to be gorgeous views (weather permitting), so maybe I’ll have some great pictures for you next week.
