My knitting is in a time out.
It's a shame, really, because I was super excited about working on the Ripple Effect shawl, designed by my friend Rachel at Unraveled Designs. I loved it so much when I saw it, that I immediately went out and bought yarn, despite the fact that I was supposed to be finishing my second Raphaelite sock.
I had grand knitting plans, because my mom was having surgery and I was going to be staying at the hospital with her, and figured I'd have plenty of knitting time. It was not meant to be. Between getting her water, helping her adjust things, and talking to nurses, I couldn't fully concentrate on it, which is BAD NEWS. I should have just stopped and played on my iPad, or read a book. But no, Sam's voice was in my head scolding me about my lack of knitting, so I kept plugging away...and then totally mucked it up. So much, I have to pull it all out and restart.
I was ticked. So its sitting in a knitting bag by my couch and I refuse to even look at it. Any of it.
We're supposed to have tea and knitting this coming Saturday, and I might actually bring a cross-stitch or something instead, I'm still so annoyed. I mean...have you seen this adorable Halloween sampler? Super adorbs! [I am in denial].
