coming up for air
I have finished a single Loksins which compliments air for project spectrum. I love the pattern, it is a simple 8 line pattern with some fun coin lace gizmos that look like cables, that I modified to stretch down the heel. Mama Blue's Sea Merino is nice to work with, what a lovely sheen. (btw - she is having an update tomorrow - at 6am for us central standard folks.) "Mama" offers a $5 rebate when you can show a finished project with her yarn, I am aiming to save since I am newly stalking her like mad. *giggle* no, seriously.

Now really, yarn aside, does anyone else ever feel like they would like to knit themselves a padded cell? I am just up to my ears in arguing, uncooperative kids today and can't help but get a little lost in a bevy of self-deprecation - sheesh, how did He decide I would be fit for this parenting gig? I see so many great parents really enjoying it, being good at it and sometimes I wonder, is something wrong with me? Please know that my kids are safe and loved and my dh and I are doing just about everything we can think of to keep them from turning into anti-social crazies but...I know, kids are kids - but wow, somedays are just so hard - my day job is way easier. Today the score is Kids 1, Mom 0.
okay, I need to let you in on a secret - when I feel particulary sad about parenthood - True Mom Confessions really makes me feel like, "I aint that bad." oooh, now that is sad.
