I like to write down patterns, just for fun, now and then, but this time it was different. To get to the point, I felt so unhappy about the whole thing, that during the last two days I was restless, uncomfortable; I looked at my current project on my needles, and almost felt disgust, wanted to throw it across the room (but didn't, it's too lovely). Loosing my love for knitting? Of course at first I didn't know what hit me, and while tossing and turning I suddenly knew, I could not do it for money! Once I realized that I was fine. I think that's weird. Don't you?
Now comes another weird part.
This morning, Biko woke me up at 4:15 to go potty. I stayed up, and while waiting for the water to boil I checked my e-mails. I found a nice surprise in one of them. Marianne has sent me her Have a Heart sock, just because. I've been lusting after that pattern, which she is selling on her blog and you can find it on ravelry as well. Now that's sweet! I'm so ready to knit another pair of socks, I think I'll find some appropriate yarn for it and cast on this weekend.
Can you tell that I'm happy again? I've got lots to show you, but that will have to wait until next week.
And here's a shot of BOTH dogs sleeping, while I'm knitting, and see, I'm NOT the one on the floor taking the picture. Those are my legs up on the coffee table. This big paw belongs to Biko, Sam is snoozing in the background.
I feel a load was lifted off my chest. I'll be finishing up the February Baby Sweater (on my needles now), knit with my hand spun yarn! Pics soon. Have a wonderful weekend!
PS I'll see what you'll say about the shawl, after I show you all the pictures. If you like it, I can still write it up for you, but with much less pressure (from myself of course).
