uh huh, you read that right. Week 17. That is for the both socks. It is week 7 for this one though. Specifically, I have been knitting this second sock for 50 days. I have 48 days left to beat my last record, which was 99 days. You’re on, stupid sock!
I do actually like knitting. It’s just… when will it end? At the toe, I guess. I am finally at the heel, so I feel like I’m actually doing something now, rather than just knitting in circles. Heel stuff is much more fun and thought provoking. Now that I have got to this monumental part of the sock, I feel enthused to carry on ahead and get it done and out of my life.
Talking about out of my life… I am down to two wips and one ball of yarn in my knitting stash. That is out of this world, out of my life! For any new readers (hello) the reason I have done this much downsizing is my move to America next month. Believe me, it got scary when it turned to May and I had to start saying next month instead of two months. I had yet another nightmare last night and woke up in a panic after dreaming I was late for the plane and had not even packed my suitcase. I hurried through my quilting projects and was trying to stuff them into suitcases. Of course! While I was debating over which headphones I should bring I realised that I had missed it. That is when I woke up and told myself it wasn’t June yet. Most confusing is that I actually only own one pair of headphones. Although, I have been spending a lot of time looking through a lot of stuff and choosing bring or don’t. It obviously got to me a bit! So, I picked some flowers from the front garden and put them in my room to bring in a little ‘zen’.
