Scatterbrained

by Cynthia on October 6, 2012

I have had a running blog post in my head for weeks now! It is starting to frustrate me more than a little how hard it is for me to get even a quick blog post published these days. I feel so completely scatterbrained anymore. So much has been going on. The kids have been sick twice in the last month. Somehow I managed to dodge the last one! I am crediting all the extra vitamin C I took coupled with cup after cup of rooibos tea for me staying well.

School is back in full swing for both my homeschooler and my public schooler. I’ve got Ariella on a modified kindergarten curriculum and she absolutely loves it. Then, to wrap up this past month, my oldest left the nest and is now living on his own. To think it was here, at this blog that I wrote about him starting high school and now he has graduated and moved on with his own life. I sometimes feel like time has just flown by in a blink of an eye.

Proof that I am feeling scatterbrained and a little out of sorts? I have begun waaay too many new knitting/spinning/weaving/dyeing projects! As of right now I have about 5 knitting projects that I started just in the past three weeks and they are all only about 10-25% complete. I was making some progress on my shawl with my handspun merino/silk yarn as the pictures below show. (I love how it is turning out too!)

But then I finished up the bamboo/merino yarn I was spinning and just had to cast on the scarf pattern I had been eyeing for it. I just began knitting it this week. I am a little concerned that the needles I am using might be a tad too big. I do not want it to be super airy and lacy.

I’m trying to stay focused on everything but a little voice keeps reminding me that if I am going to make any Christmas gifts this year than I should really get those projects going.

Until next time!

And here are the Ravelry notes for what I’m working on:

I love them both! The hand spun shawl looks incredibly soft and your scarf has such a nice pattern to it.
Sounds like Ariella is doing great at school. How wonderful is that!
I know what you mean about Christmas gifts, I have not even started myself either. School has taken its toll on me this year, I am behind on everything. I guess being scatterbrained is going around this year….. kinda like the flu. :)
