I’m finding it hard at the moment to make deliberate progress on any knitting. My mind feels all scattered and I’m working on bits and pieces of designs for a few upcoming projects. Nothing has really coalesced.
I did manage to get a bit more done on my Empire State Gloves while we were away on vacation. I’m almost up to the finger divisions on the second glove:
Perhaps I’m stalling because I’m not sure what to do next. My theory is that I should open up the thumb hole and put those stitches on some spare yarn so that I can try them on properly as I go to make sure the fit is what I need. Yes, that’s what I should do.
Any plans for yesterday were completely derailed when I noticed that our freezer in the garage was turned off. Apparently there’s a nice little temperature dial at the exact right height for a curious 6 year old. Thanks, Frigidaire. Although I did end up tossing some things, by the end of the day I’d cooked a double batch of Italian sausages in tomato/veggie sauce, enough meat filling for probably 3 tourtières (and I made pastry dough, but I didn’t assemble it all), and a boneless leg of lamb. Oh, and I finally made the potato leek soup I’d been meaning to make since I bought potatoes and leeks at the market.
Today I’m a little wiped out & you’ll forgive me if I forego something new and just work a few more rows on my gloves, right?
P.S. Countdown to school is at 3 days!
