Avoiding houseworkI decided to just be honest and title this post for what it is. Parts of my house look like a bomb hit and I just don't want to clean.
Knit group was all kinds of fun yesterday. On top of the usual, I discovered some interesting things about my knitting. Christy pointed out that when I do the long tail cast on, I flip people off. So, I now call this the flip off cast on. I was experimenting at home last night and found that I can't do this cast on without flipping people off. I guess I'm just weird.
Christy and I also stayed late and she helped me figure out that my pattern reading skills weren't quite up to snuff. I was doing yarn overs wrong. How pathetic is that? As a result, I had to rip two projects.
Lilac now looks like this:
And Cozy was ripped and started again last night:
I also started a blanket last night and I'm keeping this one for myself. I'm calling it the It Ain't Easy Being Green Blanket:
This is my first time using Knit Picks Shine and I love it! It's so soft and knits up smoothly without flying off the needles.
I'm not sure what Kishka's done wrong, but I just turned around and saw that she's put herself in the corner:
If you check your calendar, today is October 9th.
The NINTH of OCTOBER.
And this is our weather forecast for today: "THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PUEBLO HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM THIS EVENING TO 6 AM MDT TUESDAY.
SNOW...HEAVY AT TIMES...WILL OCCUR SUNDAY EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 2 FEET OF SNOW CAN BE EXPECTED."
I'm not ready for snow. I'm really not ready for this much snow.
Someone. Hold. Me.
