knitting and the life I almost have around it

on being a ghost

Hello ladies, excuse the dazed expression on my face. Does anyone else feel like they’ve been rather heavily dosed with tranquilisers? Or is it just a side effect of three days teaching PD in 30 something degree heat? Whatever the reason, I am slightly.. exhausted. This is my fourth day back at work and the last three days ended with my collapsing in a heap and sleeping through til dinner..

This has (not surprisingly) seriously impacted my knitting.

I have done a little more on Coachella but a realisation that the guage is not perfect and the drape isn’t quite me has slowed me down (knitterly denial has not allowed me to stop altogether). I do like the fabric I’m creating so I’m a little unsure where to go from here.

This morning on the bus I did a few cms of monkey’s 6ply Tiger socks (these are clearly not as miraculous as the parrot socks as I started them weeks ago).

Nothing has really held my interest: i want to knit, i really feel like knitting but i don't quite know what to knit. So i think if i get through this week with plans for next week and on top of everything then on Sunday I will allow myself the birthday gift of casting on whatever the hell i feel like. Thing is, I'm not quite sure what that is yet.

Alright, back to the salt mines

    Ugh, why on earth are you back at school now, you poor thing? College doesn't go back til next week - so I guess the high schools start earlier?

    I'm not surprised you're collapsing in a puddle at the end of the day! At least the weather should be cooler next week.
