Since my last post about tentacles, I’ve had a lot of time to figure out how I wanted to continue to use them in my crochet work. Fortunately (and unfortunately) I’ve had A TON of downtime while recovering from my surgery.
I started spinning in the morning again. Every morning used to have some sort of fiber work (play), but then it just stopped. I stopped, and didn’t realize that I was missing it. It’s been nice to start the day with
I took Kiddo to the orthodontist yesterday, and brought my knitting with me. I’ve been doing that lately. I do a lot of running around and have been making sure I have some knitting with me. All I wanted to do was finish casting on 92 stitches and use the long tail cast on (because I can finally do it, but mess up the length on the tail every time…). I was hoping to not mess up. (I did.) The waiting room was packed full of kids with braces and their parents. I felt simultaneously awesome and awkward just knitting away.
I blame lack of supervision for my monster loving obsession. What are you talking about, Jess? Let me explain. I was that kid who read all the Stephen King books when I was way too young, and was addicted to horror movies. I couldn’t get enough horror or gore, and no one was saying, “Hey. Maybe you should wait until you’re old enough to read/watch this.”
The kids had no school last week. Spring break is usually just that. A break. We don’t go anywhere and this year the weather wasn’t being too cooperative for doing outdoor type activities. At least we didn’t get more than a dusting of snow in the beginning of the week. I asked Dr. Destructo (Kiddo has been swamped with homework and headaches) to draw a monster using yarn or fiber or fiber animals (however he wanted), and I did the same. These are pretty awesome.
It’s Friday again, and for the 3rd week in a row I have brand new items for the shop. I think this is a personal record. Go me for sticking with this new schedule AND being productive with it. I can’t tell you how hard it is for me to not just blow things off. That’s not allowed to happen anymore.
