I got to spend a decent amount of time knitting at the swim meet last weekend, so I completed another market bag (not pictured as I figure you are all getting tired of those...but I am not...I love making them, such fun), knitted until I got stuck on the pattern directions for the golf club head covers, started a beanie type hat for Matt for when he has a shaved head and comes out in the cold after swim practice (per his request), and also started a baby blanket for a recent arrival of the blue variety. (This will be a sort of denim-looking blanket meant for car travel as we always found it useful to have a separate blanket for the car for the boys in summer as well as winter due to the air conditioning being cold on their bare legs, etc.) So the photo is all this laid out as nothing is complete, but I do have a lot going on.
It seems to be rather helpful to have a lot going on so that if one thing is at the "stuck" stage, there is something else to work on (until it also gets in the "stuck" stage). Lin, my knitting instructor, can always solve all my "stucks" at class in a matter of seconds it seems. It is very important to have a Lin in your life when attempting something crazy like knitting. It is enjoyable to be learning all the new bits and pieces for each type of item. I'm having fun with it all, truly, I am!
Okay...it's sunny, it's warm, dinner is all ready to go, all I need to do is run to the pool to pick up Matt, finish, serve, and eat the dinner (I love grilling season as Mark can grill every night...and he is very good at it), and then head out to the golf course. I can knit when I get home, and read before bed, and as I fall asleep I can think, "Wow, this was a great day...and nothing special even happened...it was just a great day!" I so don't deserve it. But you do...so I hope you had one, too.
