August Whirlwind

Am I going crazy?  I feel like I’m trying to do too many things at once.  I have a baby blanket to finish.  I’m working on a pair of socks I’ve designed as well as working out another design that’s come to mind.  I’m thinking of participating in the Spunky Eclectic/Hello Yarn/Southern Cross Fibres 4 Ounce Challenge! (spin 4 oz. of one of their fibers and design something using the yarn in 2 months).  And I may be about to join a KAL knitting the Annis shawl from Knitty with some of my handspun (this one is crazy cause you have to cast on 360 stitches).

I keep wanting to work on all sorts of different things, and yet, I’m not knitting very much.  In the evening, I sit on the couch catching up on the TiVo, and I think to myself that I should knit or spin.  Do I do either?  No.  I continue to sit there just watching TV.  Then, of course, when there are things I have to do (e.g., work), I just want to go home and knit.  It sort of feels like my internal clock is off, like jet lag.  As if I’m hungry and sleepy at all the wrong times, but for knitting and spinning and work.

I guess I’ll just try to buckle down and see if I can get something done, anything.

  1. No, you’re not crazy! I’ve got one more week before my vacation ends and haven’t finished half of what I planned to do. I have a tank top on the needles that I’d love to wear before it gets too cool, some spinning to still do, some house stuff, etc. What am I doing -playing around online and watching TV… I think it’s the August doldrums, myself.
