Truth is though, it's much easier for life to knock you down when you're standing on one foot with your arms full of homework, unfinished knitting and dirty washing.
I have five days at work starting tomorrow, which is more than I've done in a long time, and I have decided to make sure that my feet are firmly on the ground and that I have done everything I can to stop things going wrong. I have clean clothes, put in their own special drawer to stop that awful early morning rush for pants. I know where my shoes are. I'm going to make a stirfry to take for lunch. Most stunningly, my room is tidy. Spotless.
With all that sorted, I can happily potter about with my yarn and show off my recent additions. I warn you now, they are numerous.
Some of this arrived in the mail, but most of it's from the yarn sale I fell into.
These two have buddied up and decided to be a shawl. I'm quite happy with that plan.
This is a truly delicious yarn from AppleTreeKnits. Merino/Silk fingering in 'New Growth'.
Rebekah and I also found a hank of Merino/Cashmere that we plan to dye.
There's also some blue-green scrummyness that you can see is already on it's way to being a shawl, but I can't seem to upload the closeup of that, so more when I've made some progress.
