So while I was at my knitting classes last week, the shop received a partial order of Malabrigo yarns. I tried and I tried to resist purchasing yarn. You see, I have lots. I do! But I didn't own this beautiful skein of Malabrigo sock in the turner colorway. That is how I justified the purchase. I have a funny feeling that every time I teach, I'm coming home with yarn.
My daydreams consist of new projects to knit while my current projects linger around calling my name. This sweet little skein is destined to be a cowl. I'm itching to cast on but so far have controlled myself and have been focusing on finishing up my sweater (I'll save that conversation for yarn along).
I spent six weeks daydreaming about a clean coffee table and a clean kitchen counter and it became reality this weekend. I love everything in its place and having order. But I do miss the kids. They are both getting busy and I'm not sure if there'll be a family vacation this year. My daughter is working through the summer at an externship which I think is flexible, but my son has applied to many REUs (Research Experience for Undergraduates) and those dates are all over the place. It makes me appreciate the trip we took to South Carolina in May.
So on this chilly morning I daydream of beaches and sand and the possibility of getting all together. (I am not tired of winter! we usually book vacations by spring)
Life is full of adjustments, isn't it?
