Hello there! We made it to the weekend. That means time to celebrate with lots of yarn and fun. What is it about shorter work weeks (labor day in the US), that make the week feel longer? Someone should study that and get back to me. :)
New sock hopped on to the needles, yes all by themselves. Among quite a few other projects. I blame the castonitis on the coming of Autumn. The Autumn season has a way of curing all sorts of knitting mojo issues and inspiration deflation, at least it does for me. While I have never really dealt with the lack of knitting mojo I have heard many stories, tell me is it really painful and is there medication for it? ;)
Spurring on the desire to knit, I received a lovely mini skein swap package from my dear friend Anna Jane. Just looking at those colors makes me excited to add them to my blanket. Then of course the teas...because tea is my knitting juice. Isn't that mug rug adorable? As you can see from the first pic it has already been put to good use.
Other than knitting all the things or rather casting on all the things, this weekend is still happening. It is my birthday weekend and that means time with friends and family. The most wonderful mom in the world, my sis and I are all going out for lunch to celebrate.
This weekend also marks the anniversary of 9-11. It still feels like yesterday, at least it does to me. Since that fateful day so much more pain has been loaded on to all of our hearts. My birthday wish is no different than those past, may the coming year bring some much needed peace and an end to hatred.
I will leave you now with a tune and a huge thanks for making each birthday I celebrate with each and everyone one of you more special than the last.
Have the best day today!
