Groove is in the Heart


The littlest's room has been spic & span for nearly a week now. My guess is she's too pooped after a day of grade one to pull out any of her pollys. The return to school post-holidays has been surprisingly smooth. Homework is being finished a little too willingly, and yummy dinners are coming together a little too effortlessly. I am wary of all this. It's all a little too Bizarro Jerry for my taste.

I could kick myself. I whipped up one of these Mustard scarves (beware Ravelry link!) for one of my favourite co-worker's birthday (I have many favourite co-workers!), and I forgot to take a picture of it. In fact, I weaved in the ends and stitched on a button in the car on the way to work. People ask me how I do it all. Sometimes I let J drive. It doesn't happen often, but when I relinquish the wheel, I must knit to calm my nerves. I had no choice but to let him drive if I was to finish the scarf in order to slip it on the right desk in time. Alas, the scarf was well recieved, and my face brightened to the liking of a big red tomato. I liked knitting this scarf - it was quick, easy, and took hardly any yarn. Big needles, worsted weight yarn, and a 4-row pattern with two being straight knit - this project is a god-send for last-minute gifts! Just take my word. I'm starting a second immediately if only to have a picture for proof.

And in other news, I'm not sure why I am hemming and hawwing about purchasing the January edition of Blue Yonder's Book of Days. Is it because I know that I won't implement it, and it will become one more thing to feel guilty about? I'm SO conflicted 'cause it looks SO brilliant! Ack. Help me!
