Not just a hobby, it's a way of Life

November, eh?

Hmmm, where did October go?

Oh well, before it left, there were more socks.

Goblin Eyes socks

The pattern is Stansfield 304 from one of the Sensational Socks books (lazy, not going to Rav to look it up) in Biffle Sock Yarn “Goblin Eyes” by Spunky Eclectic. Would you like to know where Spunky is located? Huh, huh, would ya?


I’ve gone just a bit ’round the bend about the state.  I lurve it and all yarny goodness from there.

What else?  Well, this weekend I did quite a number on my ankle.  Just standing in the driveway.  That’s right, standing perfectly still, I somehow managed to get off-kilter and had my ankle fold on me.  All the way over, 90-degree fold.  Owwie-owwie-ow-ow-ow.  It was the worst pain I’ve put myself in by spraining an ankle.  I thought I was going to pass out, so I sat down.  Then I thought I was still going to pass out or maybe throw up, so I decided to lay down.  After a few minutes to compose myself, Ramblin helped me to the house, got me to the recliner, then swapped out frozen bags of broccoli for the rest of the evening.

There’s been some knitting other than socks, but I will have to get pictures of it.  There were a couple of projects that will be going elsewhere, so now I’m back to my own knitting.  November will be UFO month.  My goal is to either finish, get progress, or rip out my current on-going projects.  If I love it and there’s not much left to do, it will be finished.  If I love it and have a lot to do, I will at least start working on it again.  If I don’t love it, why on earth am I knitting it, and it will be repurposed to a better project.

Heh, speaking of on-going projects, there’s another project that has lingered for far too long, and it’s time to end it.  Long-time readers of the blog know what I’m talking about.  Instead of NaNoWriMo, it’s going to be NaNoWriLikaMoFo. (sorry for delicate ears that were offended)  Really, I’ve let myself become far too intimidated by this.  I’m just throwing words on paper and hope it makes sense.  I plan to go back and make sure it does, but the paralysis I’ve suffered because I don’t think I can do it has got to end.  I’ve read that procrastination is a symptom of perfectionism – not that I do things perfectly, but I that I want to and know that it won’t be, so I avoid being imperfect (read: in my head – awful) by doing nothing.  It’s not easy being this weird.

So dear readers – what do you hope to still accomplish before 2011 scoots out of here?

  1. I usually fall down stairs and end up hurting my ankle, but I have hurt it standing still as well. My husband usually wraps my ankle to help relieve some of the pain. And I love the yarn… but I REALLY love the spell casting yarn off to the side. By the way, the other day I wrapped Emmett in the blue blanket you gave me. After several washes and now 2 babies it’s still goin’ strong! :)
