is it really june 30th? (happy birthday, grant!) i feel like summer is slipping right through my fingers. not that it's been bad or anything--we have just been so busy that time is hurtling past at a VERY alarming rate. thank the lord i am embarking on a 4-day weekend! i will be
spring summer cleaning tomorrow and finally getting around to repotting plants and soing some minimal gardening. i also must fill a wire things order this weekend, which i am pretty psyched about. and then, the only other thing on my agenda is knitting. i really thought all the travel and vacationing i have been doing would afford more knitting time than it has--i feel sort of behind. as of this week, however, i am done knitting baby blankets for the time being. (thank god!) and yesterday, i picked up my garter stitch baby cardigan again at last--i admit i was putting that off. i knitted the entire front left side of it on the wrong needles and had to pull it all out again, which totally sucked. after that, i was so demoralized that i didn't touch it for a whole month. but now, i am cooking with gas on it again. i have already cranked half of it out again, and hopefully will finish it up tonight. after that i just have to add arm bands, a button blacket, weave in ends, sew it up (actually simple for this one), and put the buttons on. assuming the buttons i have fit the buttonholes i haven't made yet. i think i can get this done by the end of this 4-day weekend, but we'll see... my plan after that is to make a matching hat for it and then quit with the baby stuff for a while. i want to make something for ME. something lacey... or something... the options, as you know, are endless. anyway--i am just babbling today, so i am going to shut up before i bore you all to tears to the point that you stop reading and commenting on my musings. i am off to eat and knit for a few minutes. later.
