Having (mostly) recovered from smashing the crap out of my finger, I'm ready to get to work. I managed some lace knitting with the splint and actually made progress on the Flower Basket Shawl last week. It helps that this was the only project I had to work on, but I needed some focus. I still need focus. I have the attention span of a hyperactive gnat who hasn't been taking its medication. I haven't done any actual knitting this week, probably due to the aforementioned lack of attention span as well as a lack of down time. Today I spent researching Messenger Gods and haven't had more than a few seconds outside in the fresh air.
Now that I think of it, that may be related to my mood today. That, and it's just me and Dorian here and he's not much for conversation, what with being a cat and all. Little bit is in Chi-town, living it up like the princess she is and the Big Sweetie is off to work 'til God wakes up.
Anyhow, since I've been in a general green and brown rut, my next two projects are going to be red and blue. The red will be a cardigan from Interweave Knits and I'll be alonging with Becky who picked out a lovely blue. More specs later. The blue will be Doc's socks, and I need to work out the exact pattern and take notes before I forget things.
I've done some hand-sewing and made progress on my mending/UFO pile. My sewing machine is still down, but I found a Huskqvarna for $159 that I want at Jo-Ann's. Still comparing prices, of course, and not ready to commit, but I really liked that model.
