Ugggggh. This last week has been a tough one around here. Our heater broke twice. The whole family got that nasty stomach bug/flu virus that's been going around. It's been exhausting and to no one's surprise I haven't had that much time to knit. Now that everyone's getting a little bit better I'm finally able to pull my knitting out and work more on the Shakespeare Cardigan.

I only have 1 more inch left before I start separating everything out for the sleeves. It's a bad picture I know, but it's what I could pull out of my hat when trying to run around today.

Being stuck in the house with a bunch of sick babies gives you some time to discover all the things you hate about your house so as soon as they got better I went on an organizational spree. I attacked the yarn nook first thing. For the last year yarn has been multiplying there and getting into all kinds of scrapes. You know, the kinds of things that cause MASSIVE GIANT YARN TANGLES. The kinds of tangles that only a pair of scissors can fix. To be honest, I was kind of looking for an excuse to get rid of one or two of these yarns. Now I don't have to feel so bad about it. Now the yarn has gone from the nook into the yarn cupboard so that we don't have to look at it all the time. I think the yarn prefers its privacy anyway.

Part of this organization that been going through all of my magazines that I've collected since 2004 and culling the irrelevant stuff. Once I pick a bunch of magazines to get rid of I go through them all and rip out the articles or images that interest me and then I make little collages. It's more of a mental exercise for me. It clears my brain to arrange images in a little book with my glue stick and it helps me release some things that were gucking up my mental system.

So here's the latest pile of magazines that will be getting ripped to shreds:

Sexy. I've been going through stuff while packing it but, not having time to get rid of it, it's going to have to wait until after the move :(

Are all the sickies gone (including the pink ones)? Will we be seeing you on Friday?

Liam didnt end up having pink eye, he had an ear infection. He also has two bottom molars coming in at the same time. We'll be there on Friday for sure!

Welcome

angelafall2013smallI'm Angela. I'm an obsessed knitter.

Blogging about knitting since 2004.

 

What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
