I know, I know. I've not been a very good blogger at all. I have no excuse really except haven't really been on the computer much this past week or so. Had a terrible sinus headache yesterday (stupid goldenrod) and just basically sat around and watched "The Big Bang Theory" on dvd. Great show! And good and geeky for Amanda and myself! This is what jumped on my needles to be worked on. I know. Knitting monogamy is just not to be at this knitter's house. But ....I do eventually finish them all.
This is the Textured Patchwork long vest from and it's knit with Peaches and Cream kitchen cotton. I got 2 cones of it and it's coming along fabulously. As are the secret projects! *shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh*.
The weather is finally starting to change and in the evenings it's getting nice and cool. My fingers are itching for fingerless gloves and my toes wiggling for some socks. I like when summer ends and school starts. Shopping for school, crisp,clean notebooks and pens and a backpack to stuff in everything. This is the time of year when I miss college the most. Looking for textbooks (at least the ones I could afford!) and finding the classrooms. All very nerve-wracking and exciting at the same time.
But as fall proceeds towards the end I get rather melancholy. Everything dries up and dies and the nights are dark by 6:00 pm and I just want to put on my jimjams and curl up with a nice,hot cuppa and some music on the mp3 player and just kind of ....wallow. Rather moody and withdrawn but I've always been that way. *sigh*.
Off for a cuppa and a piece of chocolate.
