It's almost the weekend and actually I've already begun mine as I took the day off today to enjoy a 4 day weekend... knitting has been pretty non-existent this week and it's beginning to show in my psyche. I feel fuller and happier when I have something on the needles. Does that happen to anyone … Continue reading Yes! welll no, oh I don’t know
So yeah - I said work was going to kick my arse this week and it did that and then some... On top of it, no knitting has been done other than a few rows on Tuesday at my SnB. I'm just so exhausted. I knew this was coming (hense the super knitting mode pre-work) … Continue reading Coming up for Air

All this super-speed … Continue reading The ‘Boken is Burning
