Busy Bee

I have been terribly busy these past few weeks. We’re working to launch a whole new site at work and at home we’re trying to put our kitchen back together after having it remodelled. With all that, knitting has fallen by the wayside, unfortunately. I’m ready to get back to it.

On the upside, I only have 5 1/2 more inches on the sleeves for the Husband’s sweater. After that I just need to finish the collar (which may mean ripping out some of the torso), seam, and then block. Heck, that’s nothing! *sigh* While I will probably be busy on the kitchen this weekend, next weekend we’re driving a few hours out of town for a wedding. Hopefully, I can get the sleeves done. It would be really nice to get that sucker finished before October since I started it last October. But, we’ll see how it goes.

Every year we host a big Halloween party. Costumes are required because I’m mean and controlling. And every year I sew something top secret for both the Husband and I. And every year, knitting must come second to massive amounts of sewing. This means my knitting will slow down during the season I need to focus on holiday gifts. Not that I do many holiday gifts, but still.

I have decided that this year, I will not worry about getting things done. If I get the gifts done in time, then fine. Otherwise, we’ll buy something and be ready for birthdays or holidays next year. There is no point in killing myself. Right? But, with my rabid type A personality, I’m sure I won’t be singing this tune at the beginning of December.  I will try really, really hard though. And hey, you can all smack me or throw pies at me when I start freaking out that things aren’t done. mmmkay?

  1. Sounds like a plan. Good luck with the top secret halloween costumes. Does your husband get to know ahead of time what he is going to be? I wonder if anyone has ever gone to Halloween as a knitting project in the midst of being frogged? Hmm.

  2. firefly,

    The Husband always picks out his costume and he will clean the house and take care of my chores while I work on the costume. Which is fair since the costumes are often very intricate for me (a very beginner seamstress). Lately we’ve tried to go as a duo.

    And a knitting project during frogging for Halloween is a fantastic costume! If no one does it this year, I may entertain that thought for next year.
