A Windy Day!

Wow, the weather sure has changed here the past couple of days! Today the high was 60 degrees (F), and it was WINDY! I was planning on going to the Farmer's Market to meet a friend and her son, but decided against it once I stepped outside. My friend ended up coming over after she went to the market. While we were drinking tea and entertaining our sons (and watching them entertain themselves), I thought, "this is why I'm so thankful to be at home right now." It was nice to have a relaxing day around the house, especially since yesterday we were busy running errands.

I have so many Works in Progress right now that I've decided to apply some kind of knitting schedule to my day. I know it sounds rigid, but it's what i need to turn my UFOs into FOs! So, during Matt's morning naps I'm going to work on my projects for Pat (fly fishing cross-stich and sweater from a year ago!). In the afternoon I'm going to work on some felted bags I'm making for friends, and the evening (after Matt goes to sleep) is reserved for whatever the heck I want to do! Tonight I picked up some socks I started last spring. This has definately been a case of the dreaded second-sock syndrome. I have to say, however, that I really enjoyed the delicate work of sock-knitting, as well as the soft yarn being worked with my addi turbos (I love using the Cat Bordhi method of two circular needles). I have some sock yarn in my stash, as well as some patterns I'd like to try, so perhaps my evening will turn into "sock time."

Stay tuned for some pics of my finished projects. I've been using my parents camera, and they finally got their new dock for it. The old one was fried after a lightning strike at their house! Yikes!

Good idea to have a bit of a schedule of what you want to focus on! =) I think it really helps so you can realize what you want to get done otherwise it's easy to flit from one thing to another without ever finishing. Ask me how I know ;)
