One Of Those Days

Do you ever have one of those days were it seems like everything just gets in the way? Where you even get in your own way? That’s how my yesterday and today have been.

You can see by looking at the photo two obvious things: I got a bunch of knitting in yesterday and my assistant is assisting in unhelpful ways.

Yesterday when nothing else was going along easily I decided to just sit my behind on the couch and knit. I was really productive but then I noticed I’d dropped a stitch and had to hunt up a crochet hook to wrangle the stitch back up to where it belonged. It took longer to find the crochet hook (it was in a bag with the sock project I’m ignoring- the yarn is cursed. I accept that. I’ve got to rip it out and come up with another plan.) than it did to fix the stitch. But once the stitch was where it belonged I powered through another bunch of rounds.

Myles knows it’s spring. There is more sunlight during the day. It has been warmer. There are squirrels and so many birds. He’s taken to standing on anything that will let him see outside. He’s sure there are exciting things going on out there. There are more people walking by and so many dogs. Not helpful when he stands on my knitting.

    Oh, Myles. Doesn’t mama know that you want to go outside and play? Doesn’t she know that black yarn is easier to see in the bright sunlight?

    Your project is making me dream of doing something similar with contrasting skeins. I have a few hundred I could use. LOL! My dogs think the cedar chest in front of the street side window is the perfect place to plant their butts to see all the doings of the neighborhood. I think it’s the perfect place to display a quilt. The quilt never seems to stay on the chest!

    I feel your pain. I had to frog back yesterday- not enough holes in a lacy pattern, and I don’t have a lovely animal to blame !

  5. I finally got my 16 inch size 8 circular needle today, after finishing up the first sleeve of the WW, cast on the second sleeve tonight and I’m gonna whiz through that baby tomorrow. I’m not a fan of dpn’s so that was annoying me. Maverick is also made a bit crazy by the weather – he just wants to be outside barking at stuff!

    Oh Myles, be patient, it’s still cold outside, even with the spring sunshine! You probably shouldn’t spend so much time assisting mom with her knitting!

    So nice to see part of your Myles, no doubt your mom needed your help. On a day like she was having you brought “humor” I hope to your mom. Knitting is fun but not when it causes a dropped stitch. Hugs to Myles.

  8. I definitely have days like that! Good to see Myles, but sorry he is not a helpful helper right now 🙂 Your cowl is looking great!

    I have those days sometimes, sometimes they come in a group of days. It’s like “Murphy” moved in and you can’t figure out how to get rid of him :P.
