better days and a Sundara Spolier
waterballoons + freezie pops = Monday success
I think it was a week ago today I wondered right here why I had signed up for parenthood. Today this mama feels a little redeemed. I was more prepared to play myself and that always makes the time we spend more fun, not because I am just so much fun, but I feel like a parent playing along keeps things moving and cooperative. If I leave my girls to their own devices, hairpulling and yelling often ensues, and somedays I just don't have the energy. So I would say that today evened up the score for now - kids = 1, mom = 1. Next Monday will be the rubber match.
I'm continuing to drag along on my Yarnissima test knit - yikes I feel like a bit of a late bloomer here. I need to get focused. This week really lacked knit time. I usually knit after the girls are in bed or in the car - well, I think we had something going on every night - I hope this week is a bit quieter for so many reasons, knitting of course being one. Sanity is a close second.
Last up let me show you my Seasons installment from Sundara. I chose the winter season - I am not disappointed, I don't think Sundara ever comes up with anything ugly, not ever. Maybe "less fabulous", but never ugly. 1000 yards of lace weight. Eek, lace, I know. But is awful perfect for the current Project Spectrum element, and couldn't you see an Ene? *ravelry link* (so could I, which led me through my darned house looking for Scarf Style - do you think I can find it? doh!) Or what about a Lily of the Valley? (Holy "nupps" Batman!)
