I have been having trouble concentrating on lace patterns. Alot of trouble. I thought it was because I was being a lazy lout, but Saturday evening I was working on the stealth project and realized I’m blocked. At first, I was very upset. Very. Then, I thought that maybe I ought to take it easy for a bit until I feel that I want to sit and work on the lace. It’s really simple, but as is usual with me, I missed the signs. My Mom has started talking to me during a television show or knitting lace. I can be smack in the middle of a complicated chart and she’ll say something and wait for a response. I had been close to losing my temper, but she can’t help herself, so it’s me that needs to adjust. In other words, no involved lace for a bit. It’s not just a chart, but the counting and concentration. I love lace, so it’s not going to be going far, but it will be put on the back burner for a bit. Unless, of course, it’s a super simple design.
I did spend time this weekend washing “Grant”, my fleece. It’s very hard to clean it now. The lanolin is sticky so it’s taking several washings and that slows down the process (justbecausetheidiotwiththefleecedidn’tdoitearly). I have no pictures to show, because the wind was blowing so hard all weekend that I couldn’t get a shot without chasing the fleece down. Yes, it was really that windy. So, I’m afraid that the small amount that I got done will wait for its photo-shoot until the winds die down and the front comes through. I’m still doing it, but am learning as I go. It’s quite satisfying, but I’m not sure if I’ll do this again for some time. Either that, or go for a much smaller fleece than that of a ram.
I hope your weekend was enjoyable and your Monday is good. I do apologize for the Friday video. By the time I got your comments, I couldn’t get it to show up either. No clue why, so we’ll just mosey on. I’ll leave you today with my soundtrack. Ten Years After and “Goin Home” from Woodstock, no less. Enjoy
Have a good one!!!
