This is it, I’ve made it through. I haven’t exploded, no one has been arrested, gone to the emergency room, or the insane asylum. Heck. no one has even gone to the bar. Tomorrow is that beautiful halcyon day called THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!! Tomorrow, unless the boys’ hurricane dance pays off, they will trudge off to the salt mines and Shel and I will have one child apiece!! Oh. the possibilities.
On the knitting front, I have finished the back and have 2 inches left to knit on my silk cami. Also, the windmill bag has a mere 100 rows left to go. I should be able to get both of these off the needles by the end of the month. The knitting fairies are snickering, I can tell. I do have a major decision to make about the silk cami. It calls for straps made out of these really elegant seed pearls. But, I’m not really a pearl kind of girl. I’m more of a fun beaded strap kind of girl. I’ve got to decide whether or not to leave it as is, or personalize it a little.
I’m hoping that since (say it again) school starts tomorrow, I will have a little more time to focus on knitting and also doing a better job of reading everyone’s blogs. That somehow got away from me last week. If I missed you last week, this week I solemnly swear to do better. I’m going to try to make this week all about catching up. At least, I haven’t started another new, non-YOP project, right?
