More Thinking, Less Doing


As I hinted at on Friday, I needed to take some time this weekend to think through some stuff. I'm sure everyone deals with personal inertia to some extent, and I know I struggle with it a lot. So it's healthy to take time every so often to take stock of things.  Figure out goals, re-establish priorities, you know. So it was a good weekend in that respect, and I got psychologically caught up with myself, but I really didn't get much else done. I almost thought about trying to squeeze in a photoshoot yesterday, but the wind was really intense, and it was nice to not really do any work this weekend.

The green shawl's still not finished, but it should get done this week. I only managed a couple of rows this weekend. I did spend about 2 hours in a coffee shop with my current socks and In the Woods, and I just had such a good time that I forgot to take any pictures. But it was the best way to spend an afternoon-I really ought to do that sort of thing more often. Also, In the Woods is really good so far-I'm 2/3rds of the way through now and hope to finish it this week.

I'm still in a battle with my WIP baskets-I'm down to nine projects right now, which is pretty good. With any luck, I'll get two done this week and I'll be in an even better spot. I'm toying around with my idea for my summer pullover design project, and I pretty much have my big summer knitting projects figured out (because it's been hot enough to think about summer knitting). I have enough of the crochet thread that I used for my Ella cardigan last summer to make an almost-hip length Featherweight, and I'm ready to give Mottled Daydream another go-I have the perfect yarn picked out, if only I can find it in my stash. Hopefully having some fun stuff lined up will motivate me to get some of the current WIPs out for good.

  1. I'm excited to see the shawl finished + the socks!

    I like the Patons colorway you're using! PS what drink do you order at starbucks?

    1. Thanks! I didn't really need any sock yarn when I bought the Patons, but I fell hard for those stripes. No regret.

      If I'm treating myself to a latte, I almost always go White Mocha-I have a ridiculous sweet tooth!

  2. it's totally worth it to take time and think through what you want to do, and figure things out- always time well spent! and knitting while reading a good book? Never a bad idea.

    1. Considering how much I enjoy it, it's surprising I don't hole up in a coffee shop with a sock and a book very often-might have to rethink that!
