Well hello everyone, I hope you're having a good weekend. Lovely foggy morning for my walk this morning - makes you feel as though you are the only person out and about.
Can you believe it's November already? Time seems to be flying past. Last week I had set myself the target of finishing the knitting of my purple cardigan by the end of the month. Do you do this - constantly set yourself targets that end up making you feel under pressure?
I'm a list maker (like so many fellow bloggers). I love being able to tick things off, a sense of achievement, a job well done - you know the feeling. Any way, yesterday, I was getting stupidly stressed over the fact that I probably wasn't going to get the cardigan finished, as planned. It put me in a real niggly mood. But by the end of the day, I only had the button bands to pick up and knit.
This morning, I woke up in a rebellious mood - why was I forcing myself to comply with deadlines that are completely unnecessary?
So today, I'm NOT going to finish the cardigan, I'm NOT going to tick anything off the "to do" list I had written for today. Today I am being a rebel!
So I've just spent the last few hours knitting up another mini sweater for my bunting.
This one is using some of the leftovers from my October socks. I still have enough left for some fingerless mittens.
I've also started a new shawl - this one is crocheted.
The pattern is South Bay Shawlette, a freebie. It's a lovely easy pattern and it grows really quickly.
We're having a lazy day, watching sport on the television. Cricket this morning, football at the moment (Everton v. Sunderland), then it will be darts later.
So I think I'll cast on for some socks next - why not - I'm just about managing to ignore that purple cardigan and the "to do" list - I'm not sure I'm very comfortable being a rebel!
