OOOOOK, So, I seriously have to do something about this blogging slump I’m in. I toyed with the idea of giving it up altogether…, but I don’t want to risk losing touch with so many dear friends. Besides, every once in a while I want to say something.
Then, I told myself I’d just basically blog if something brilliant came to mind (not likely) or if I had an FO. Well, the blog’ll definitely die a slow death in that case.
Then, for the last two weeks I’ve just been telling myself to blog, about anything, just so people remember who I am… Well two weeks pass :o( No blogging.
So, for the past week, I’ve told myself I’m going to do a mini-NaBloPoMo… promise myself I’ll blog every other day for all of December, about anything, just blog, and maybe it’ll spark my interest again. My buddy Theresa said that participating in NaBloPoMo really helped, the more she blogged, the more she found to say! So, that’s my plan, that’s my hope. Here goes…
What am I knitting? Wellll, I think I left the pattern for Cobblestone in the trailer after our Thanksgiving getaway. I can’t find it anywhere. I definitely remember taking it out of the Little House and putting it in the trailer so it would get home, but I don’t exactly remember taking it out of the trailer with the rest of my stuff and putting it in the “real” house… So, Cobblestone is on hold until I find the pattern, go to the place we store the trailer and look there, or get to town and buy another copy. Pity, too. I’m in a real Cobblestone mood, and I just finished the body, to where you need to attack the sleeves and start the yoke… but I can’t make sleeves until I find the magazine! Oy.
That there on top of Cobblestone is a boot sock I started while away for Thanksgiving. I’m just winging those with the help of Kaity, no pattern needed, so I guess I’ll work on them while Cobblestone is on hold.
And, lets face it – if I’m going to be blogging every other day, brilliant idea or not, you’re going to be subject to lots of Layla pictures. Here she is on Thanksgiving at the Little House, she and her new boyfriend (my parents lab-mix) looking longingly at each other through the back door. Ahhhh :o)
Don’t worry, there are LOTS more Layla pictures where those came from ;o)
See you in 2 days, ready or not!
