an avatar & an omen
Yeah, this is a good representation of me this week. Nothing too awful, just issues with work, not enough hours, and a teenaged son who's dicovering a social life. I scored a trifecta of things I don't like last Saturday: a trip to the mall (see: teenage son , above), playing outfield with a not-so-softball, and seeing a super-duper action film. eeeuw. Feh.
Being the optimist that I am, I'll look at the positives. I'm progressing on my Clapotis. I'm on the Enough Already With the Straight Repeats section. I'm sure you've been there. Close to decreasing to the end. Having come this far, I don't want to err on the skimpy side. She Shuns Short Shawls. So I keep on adding just one more full width repeat.
This frees me up to think whats next . Whatever it is, it'll use thicker yarn than the linen. Which doesn't split - gotta give it that. See? told you I'm positive.
I'm still pondering koolaid dye, while telling myself No, don't go there. Too many other projects going, none of which involve mounds of wet yarn to hang up at the end. But I've found samples, so I know what flavors to buy!
Yet still, at the chinese grocery, by the register, incongruously cozied up to candy jars filled with dried scallops & dried shrimp (are these a snack? I never see anyone buy them) and cryptic herbal supplements, is a little box of unsweetened koolaid packets. An omen, yes?
