Knitting Must Have sleeves,
The mind wanders to Clapotis
and lusts for Noro.
Sleeves just seem to go slowly. But of course there are the holidays, too what with all the cookie baking, shopping and parties. I took off a week from work but it's just not enough time!
Must Have enabler Kim praised me as "prolific knitter" but I don't hold a candle to Opal who I think has knit enough garments for a small country since I've met her.
I still want to knit Kirsten's Thorpe and some of Barbara's cute Christmas trees but will there be time?
It doesn't help that I'm easily distracted by stuff like Bumpy Doink's Japanese meme link. I have to work on the music meme she tagged me on, too!
I managed to crank out some more stitch markers, maneki neko (shown in black but also in white and gold) and apples. I recycled some turquoise beads and added some silver leaves. I'm also trying to use up some of my pearl and Swarovski crystal stash and go big with the earrings, as the younger girls seem all be in to huge dangly things.
And then of course there's the angst of work. I found out one of the ladies I walk with also put in for retirement. It was suggested by the walking group that when I feel a whine coming out I just call her up and quack. Maybe I'll try it!
