Saturday, May 12


This month seems like it's dragging on. The heat has finally hit us, and I know it's just the beginning of the summer. Longer and hotter days are still up ahead.

I'm pretty much too hot to do anything. In the Winter I'm too cold, in the Summer I'm too cold, and in the Spring and Fall, the seasons I love most, well, I don't have anything weather appropriate to wear.
May sneaked up on me (I just found out "snuck" isn't even a word) and it's going by FAST.  I have so many things I need to do. I need another day in the week, another hour each day will just not do.

I cast on for Driven, a pattern by Veera Välimäki, little while ago for MadMay. I'm using Madelinetosh Chunky, but unlike it's name, it's Aran weight. I was excited about this pattern, I thought it would be a quick knit, and it is. The yarn knits up beautifully, and I'm so happy with the color- Nightbloom. It reminds me of Grape Kool Aid stain.
And why, may you ask am I knitting an Aran Weight cardigan in the middle of a heat wave? Good question. I have no answer. I just know that if I wait until cooler weather, it will already be too late. Besides, now I'll have a reason to crank up the AC in my office. And still be snuggly warm.

I'm also in the midst of trying to somehow redecorate. Martha Stewarts "Organization" is my new Bible. I'm not doing too good at it.
I've been combing through etsy to find some cool home stuff. Anything really. 

I totally covet this pillow. In a K please!

I have always wanted an Abacus

And I'm thinking this fabric could make some great throw pillows. 

And of course, I always need more time.
