A Bit Dilettante

So lately I’ve had a little trouble settling to anything.  In my last few days of summer break I’ve been dabbling in a little of this and a little of that.

A little house cleaning and a little napping.  A little laundry and a little visiting with friends.

A little spinning.

Some Blue Faced Leicester top I got in Logan, Utah.  It’s been mostly marinating in my stash since 2009.  I call it Wasatch Blue after the mountains there.

Even with the stuff I’ve been doing the most of, I can’t seem to settle.

I’ve been reading, of course.

Please note, however, that each of those four books has a bookmark in them.  And don’t even ask how many are started on the Kindle.

Then there’s the knitting.  Lots of works in progress.

Jeanie, in the Fleece Artist from Nova Scotia.  About a third of the way done, maybe.

It won’t look like much until it’s finished and blocked, of course.

I finished a pair of socks.

Ribbelmuster in Knit Picks Essential Multi.  They came out a little wild, even for me.

I’ve done one of another pair.

“Whitby” from Nancy Bush’s Knitting on the Road, in the Opal yarn I got in Grand Rapids.

But I’ve moved on to Lacy’s birthday socks.  Since her birthday was in April and she finally told me what pattern she wanted.

Absinthe in Malabrigo Sock.  That girl is always issuing me a challenge one way or another.  These are my first toe-up socks and I had to learn a neat new cast-on for them.

So maybe I’ve been a little obsessed with socks lately.  In an ADD way.

All of that comes to a screeching halt tomorrow as it’s back to work with Meet Your Teacher Night.  Now I’ll have to pretend to be the grown-up, focused one.
