Another beautiful weekend in June and boy, was it a busy one! I think I mentioned that I had off Friday and decided to sit and continue to read my book, The Book Thief, drink my coffee and have some granola cereal with fruit. It was a nice relaxing morning. With both my children far away, I planned on staying very busy, so after breakfast, I started cleaning my daughter’s bedroom where I now house my yarn, needles, and all my other important stuff.
So, I have been meaning to find a better way of putting my yarn away so puppy can’t get at it. He seems to think its a game to grab a skein of yarn and run around the house with it in his mouth, ripping the tag and the yarn in the process. He’s a great puppy otherwise, he just loves anything paper, including the wrapping on my yarn.! Now, if I never took him for a walk to use up his extra energy I would maybe understand, but this puppy goes out for a long walk almost every day! So, I remembered that I had an extra laundry basket downstairs that was really high and had a lid on it. So, I emptied all my yarn, actually it’s not all my yarn, but it’s the yarn that was sitting in a very pretty open, low basket that made a nice fashion statement, but also was right in front of puppy’s face! Anyway, I don’t think I will be chasing after him or the yarn and more. The only drawback is that I will have to dig down when I am looking for a particular color or weight of yarn!
While working on my new yarn basket, I realized that I needed something new to knit, just knit. Something that I didn’t have to read a pattern, or count or think. I had a lot of thinking to do and I wanted to keep my fingers moving, so I pulled out some deep blue yarn and just started knitting. I think it’s going to be a washcloth. I felt so good to just knit! I can’t wait to see how it turns out, then I can get back to my other projects. I’ve realized that I get kinda bored with a project very quickly. I don’t know why and I don’t know if that’s a really bad thing, I just want to work on different projects for a short time because I like to keep knitting. I guess it sounds pretty silly! So, here’s a peek at my washcloth! Next time I will show you how my other projects are going.
