Happy.  And Accomplished. And (almost) Content.

Why! I hear all 1 reader cry!  Because I managed to tick something off my todo list and do some knitting.  Lemme ‘splain…

I am slowly preparing my little abode and myself for a big project, something that will improve my life and my habitat.  Something that I won’t can’t tell you about because I am superstitious and afraid it will all fall through at the last minute.  But I am super excited!

So to aid me further, last week I made a todo list.  A list of all the niggly little things that I’m not getting done, that  are wandering aimlessly from room to room because I can’t put them anywhere definate because they aren’t finished.  But the plan backfired on me, because the list grew and became evil and taunted me….ahem.  The list became opposing and I didn’t like it.

So last night I sat down and looked at the state of my living room (seriously I would post a picture but I am too ashamed) and thought ‘right, baby steps it is’ and made a start.  I tidied and put things in the bin, not completing a job, but working towards it.  I also put some pictures in a frame that I had been meaning to do for ages (job ticked off).  I started preparing more items for ebay, so working towards another item and it went on and on.

And when I was done I even had time to do a little bit of knitting (working on the blanket KAL), which meant I was working on another item on the list (to catch up, I can’t believe I’m hosting and I am behind).

It might only seem like a little thing but those little ticks and marks on that list made me extremely happy.  Tonight I will make more progress again, I am determined.

In knitting news I am making progress on the Blanket KAL, I’m still not up to date, but I am getting there.  I am organised in the KAL though, the next two weeks squares are already planned out, thanks to EddyG and Redplaid.

I have also been working on the nanner socks.  I am such an idiot.  I have been working on these socks forever and a day and they just didn’t seem to be growing, so slowly they slipped closer towards the UFO pile.  I grabbed them as a quick travel project last week.  When I picked them up I had no idea where I was up to or what the pattern was, so I set about reading. 

When I looked at the pattern again I noticed that the chart only shows odd numbers up the sides (to non knitters this will make no sense), and then I read the words. …

“On even-numbered rows knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches”

Yup, you guessed it!  For almost an entire sock (knit from the toe up, and I’m past the ankle) I have knit the pattern without the knit row.  Now I have started knitting the pattern correctly the sock seems to be growing quicker – go figure.  At least they will be unique!
