That word pretty much sums up my weekend. I did a whole bunch of nothing. Do you ever feel like doing absolutely nothing? I didn’t even feel like knitting. I did a little, though. Most of the weekend was me parked on the couch watching tv doing nothing. I have to admit it was nice and it actually prepared me to get busy this morning. I’ve been ultra-productive at work, which always makes the day go faster.
I cast on for my acrylic poncho last night. I’m only a few rows into it, so I’m not far enough along to tell if I like the fabric it’s producing. I was too lazy to do a gauge swatch since it’s a poncho, so while gauge matters, it’s not essential. Once there’s enough progress to report, I’ll post a picture. My other crafty adventure was cross stitching Christmas ornaments. I finished a gingerbread man. Well, I almost finished a ginger bread man. I did everything except the french knots. Why are these so hard for me? Anybody know a place I can find an easy explanation? I’ve been cross-stitching since I was like 5 and I’ve never been able to do french knots correctly. At this point, I think it’s more a mental block than anything else. He’s super cute and I look forward to making more!
