Good News, Bad News
Good News: It’s snowing! We haven’t gotten much snow this winter (apparently it’s all gone to the east coast), and I’ve been feeling cheated.
Bad News: The snow is making my normal laziness reach absolutely epic portions. All I want to do is start a pot of soup, snuggle up in blankets, drink hot chocolate, watch movies, and knit the day away. That would mean that the laundry/schoolwork/real life stuff would pile up even deeper, and that would drive me right over the edge.
Good News: I love the new sock I’m working on. Its awesomeness is filling me with glee.
Bad News: I have grand plans for it and can’t show you anything about it.
Good News: I love the other new sock I’m working on. They are for The Boy and are full of cables and manly goodness.
Bad News: I’m not liking the yarn I started them in. Well, I like the yarn just fine, just not with this pattern.
Good News: I realized this when only a few inches in, not after hours and hours of knitting.
Bad News: That still means ripping, which I loathe, and then (and this is the tricky bit) finding a new yarn that I like, he likes, and works well with the pattern. This is not a small task.
Good News: I’ve gotten some really yummy yarn samples in the mail over the last few days
Bad News: They are only serving to fuel the overwhelming urge to shirk all real life responsibilities and play with yarn all day.
Would someone like to be a grownup in my place so I can have a snow day?
