Such a full weekend! I haven’t even had a chance to sort through my photos yet. There were, uhm, over 1,000 when I transferred them. How embarrassing! I may have gone a bit overboard. But it was a banner week. Our baby turned two. Our oldest got his driver’s permit (!) and of course there was Easter as well.
I do not have a single knitting project on needled right now. Well, except for that perennial blanket project, but that doesn’t really count. It is such a strange feeling! Next up is more deadline knitting, in the form of Elijah’s birthday sweater, which I am very eager to start, but also a little nervous about.
For several years there I finished up Galen’s birthday sweater way in advance, so that after the holidays quickly followed by Iain and Mairi’s joint birthday, there would this delightfully exciting and relaxing lull. I *love* creating for my children and doing special projects for the holidays and their birthdays. But at the end, when all was finished it was this giant sigh of relief and giddiness when I realized that, WAIT! There is nothing that I have to be working on right now! I could start anything, anything at all! Maybe even something for me? Revolutionary idea there. A whole world full of possibilities!
This is not so much the case anymore. With the holidays in December, two birthdays in January, one in February, one in March and one in May, everything is pretty much back to back. And now with regular deadlines for the shop* to factor in as well. My stars, I feel like a busy woman. Perhaps that relaxed, easy crafting feeling will hit come summer time? Or maybe when my children are grown?!?
*I promise to start talking about other things again soon.
