Breath In, Breath Out

As I type this, the littlest one is doing some sort of April Fool’s day trick with my refrigerator.  My husband set it up for her, so I’m not too worried.  But it does make my control freak nature a little twitchy.

Breath in, breath out.

Life’s Stash

I feel like this time of year always goes into hyperdrive.  The next time I blink, it will be turning the calendar over into May.

Breath in, breath out.

What I’m Knitting

I’m still working on the Zick Zack scarf.  I am thrilled and amazed and fascinated by the way the stripes work out.  It’s so much fun to work on.  I hit the point where it felt like I wasn’t actually making progress on the scarf but instead was knitting the same row over and over again.  Sort of like being stuck in neutral but still revving the engine.  I put a locking stitch marker in one of the rows so that I could actually see the progress I made.  You know what?  I’m actually making progress!  The scarf really is growing.  Who knew!?

I also picked up the Stockinette Haruni again.  I pushed through another color repeat and got to the lace border.  Although the colors right now are not looking quite as gradient like as I was hoping, I think it will work out all right in the end.

Breath in, breath out.

I hope it will work out all right in the end.

I need sunlight to work on the Haruni, so I’ve been doing a row (or a partial row) in the morning when I get up with my first cup of coffee.  Even though the sun isn’t up quite yet, it’s still better than working on it with tired eyes.  In the evening I work on the Zick Zack scarf.  I also have been taking the Zick Zack scarf everywhere I go.  It’s starting to get quite a lot of attention.  I even sneak in a few rows during my weekly meeting with The Boss.  It’s okay, his mom is a knitter so he understands the compulsion.

What I’m Not Knitting

Oh the sweater and the socks and the blankies….. they’re all calling to me but I’m trying to finish the Zick Zack before I go back to these.  Or maybe finish 2 Zick Zacks as my brain keeps running through all the yarn I have in my stash.

Breath in, breath out.

Knots & Tangles

I think I might have an entire blog post about the blonde moments I had while knitting the Haruni.  Apparently counting to 289 has not been my strong suit lately.  Counting to 4 and 5 for the Zick Zack is enough.

Breath in, breath out.

Loose Ends

I’d like to send a shout out to all the lovely knitters in Arizona who are now reading the blog.  Thank you.

And thank you to everyone who takes the time to read and who signs up to get an email whenever a post goes live.  Thank you also for commenting, you humble me.

  1. I love the fact you are blogging more often!!! It always gets me more excited to start another project….I try to do one at a time. Blessings to you and your family this Holy Week….Happy Easter!


  2. I can so relate to all of this! Your scarf is beautiful! Many of the ladies @ knit nite are working on the zick zack, and they are all so pretty!
    I can easily get swept in to so many projects, but I just can’t seem to find enough time! It’s almost a distraction for me. So I will take your advice, and just breathe! Happy Easter Jessica!
