I'm sorry, was I saying something?

Well, that went well for what - 4 weeks?
Here I am, 5 days after the lame Hoffman post (so lame it has ONE comment) and I still:

- haven't finished that book
- haven't finished Beautiful Creatures (and probably won't)
- haven't started a single one of my Persephone books
- haven't even cracked open The Blythes are Quoted despite its quick-like-a-bunny delivery
- have to return most of my library books unread because - oh, look! Something shiny!
- ripped out another cowl THREE times (wrong yarn, wrong needles, lost and then made a stitch somewhere, leaving a gaping hole
- stared at the yarn for Gina's housewarming gift but have yet to even cast on
- knit the tricky first 12 rows of an adorable baby hat, put it down, picked it back up and proceeded to knit it backwards, so where all the smooth pretty knit stitches should be, were all lumpy, bumpy purl stitches.

If this is what I am like at almost-40, God help me in my eighties.
If I make it that long.

That sounds like my December. Start, stop, start, stop...nothing is ever actually finished or accomplished.

Here's to a better February!

I heard you had a friend in town a few weeks ago that kept you out til all hours (not once but twice), leaving you NO time for reading OR knitting. That's what I heard.

Suse said...

I'm disappointed you plan not to finish Beautiful Creatures. Tracy Chevalier rocks, I reckon.

Also, I need a new book because I appear to be finally done to death with my Tudors obsession. The new Sarah Dunant is on my list - have you read it yet?

Beth said...

If that's the cowl I think it is, I'm on my 4th try too. I call it The Cussing Cowl.

Samantha said...

I'm with Suse - what's the story with Remarkable Creatures? I really got into that one :-)

If it makes you feel any better, I'm pretty much distracted and...I can't even think of the other word I was going to use here... because...what? what was I saying?

Also, I've gained about five pounds in the last month eating what can only be described as...wait...where was I going with this? it was funny.

So don't feel so bad. You're doing great.

Love, Fatty

Here's a book that should cheer you up: Everything I needed to know about being a girl I learned from Judy Blume by Jennifer O'Connell. Seriously, I am reading it now, and keep thinking how much YOU would like it. A series of essays by women writers about how much Judy Blume meant to them over the years. I got it at the library at work, but maybe you could find it through the Carnegie system. A great little book!

Somethimes you just need to knit dishclothes. You can knit those suckers in the dark with eyes closed.

They get me over the knitting block.

Plus? They are so nice to clean with. And pretty too.

Just had to post a comment to bump up your numbers a little :-)
Good luck with the knitting.
Knitting scares me.
I'm not kidding.
