Linking up with Ginny at Small Things for an April Yarn Along.
I haven't found much time this week for reading or knitting. I want to do both, and look forward to it each day, and then by the time I get life wrapped up and head to bed I am usually too exhausted for more than a few pages or rows. I started a teaching a new term last week, have actually been being social and spending time with other adults, and on top of that I started taking a guitar class (yeah!). I have played poorly on and off for years, and since I get to take free classes from the college where I teach, I thought it would be fun to learn in a class setting. At least it should refresh my brain and make me practice! I have also been dealing with what I think are some sort of mysterious sudden-onset GERD symptoms (?) that started while we were in Mexico and have since spent a lot of energy trying to figure out how to make my body feel better. I am still working on it, but feel like I am (slowly) making progress.
I'm still working on reading Moby Duck. It is proving to be hard to get through, but the information is interesting, and I hope to get it finished one of these days. Also still reading my quick and easy read from last week, This is Where I Leave You. I am actually enjoying it loads, but like I said, just haven't found the time (or energy) to read.
And the knitting has been about as productive as the reading. After getting a few more rows in, I set aside the In-Threes cardigan that I am knitting for Phoebe. I decide to work on a birthday cowl that I had on the needles since I think I can finish it pretty quickly. Maybe finishing a project will give me some knitting inspiration....?
Hoping this isn't too much of a complainer post! It is just funny sometimes to suddenly realize it's Yarn Along day and then to realize I am still reading the same books and haven't knit much of anything. I just wonder where the time goes! How has it already been a week!?!
What are you reading? What are you knitting? Pin It Now!
