Busy, Busy, but not on what I should be

First, I am working on both knitting and jewelry. That said, none of it is what I'm supposed to be working on right now. Meaning, the Great Am. Afg., or Jayne Hats, or anything else over there in my WIP's.

What I am working very industriously on is the Forest Canopy Shawl - not terribly successfully - only had to completely frog it once, but numerous small fixes. Dang! If I could only learn to count!

Also, once again cleaning my jewelry bench up. This time in prep for picture day! Finally found my missing camera, the misplacing of which was really making me whine. So, now I can start taking photos of all my cool pieces to upload to the new website, which is still under construction. Whew!

So, until then, I leave you with this.

Really. I thought I looked more like Meryl Streep.

Well, maybe not.

A Plethora of Knitting, and Jewelry to come!

Well, I've done it again. My greedy knitting-eyes dolled up greedy knitting eye
have made me commit to not one, not two, but thr33 (that's 3 for you folks who don't read leet) KAL's. What was I thinking? This in addition to committing to do a jewelry trunk show in two weeks, and the continuing drama of website construction! Can you say, "overextended?" Better yet, will I ever be able to say, "Maybe soon, but right now I have other commitments. Yeah. I'd better work on that one.

To describe my new commitments:

  1. Seraphina: Yes, she's chugging along, tho' still not even to row 20! Crocheting in Caron Simply Soft

  2. Great American Aran Afghan
    aran afghan love sq knitting this in Araucania Nature Wool. Just 40-ish rows into it.
  3. The Civil War Shawl by Suzanne Pufpaff - just purchased the pattern (thanks for fast shipping and great instructions, Suzanne!) and 2 different yarns: Ornaghi Felati in Deep Sage from my lys, Knot Another Hat; and Jaggerspun Zephyr 2/18 lace weight in Indigo from Sarah's Yarns. Having never done lace before, I just couldn't decide on the yarn, so I guess I'll make 2!
So, what to do? Petition the Good Lord for more hours in the day? Expect my loving husband to give up one of his free days to do housework, so I can follow through on my commitments? Alas, these and other miracles (waking up 30 pounds lighter, etc.) will not occur. I must simply quit obsessing about the layout of my blog, quit eating HotTamales, and do KNIT! At least 3 hours a day! So, get knitting, Sarahcita!

Mood: kinda inspired ^_^
