i totally thought i was off to a good start on the next part of my business. i had two blog entries about patterns and was planning at least several more in the series, hoping to have my first independent pattern published in 2007. i also planned to make some ornaments and a couple of slippers for guests… and… and then this got in the way
the roommates left. this is what i did on christmas eve. the friday before, i even forgot to tell you that ben and i took the little car out to thrift stores and bought a TON of sweaters to recycle (some of which can be seen here in dyed yarn form). there will be even more next week because they’re going out-of-town again. here’s just the roving, which was my focus for this session.
it may not look as if my plans were spoiled, but it really has been stressing me out. that and ben bought me the biggest bookcase he could find at ikea (i requested one somewhat smaller, like half size) – which had to be put together in the yarn room and so everything had to be moved out. the room is seriously just barely bigger than the bookcase laid flat on the floor. now, the roommates come home tonight and i’ve a lot of work to do – as in moving everything back in.
am i being a bit dramatic? hope to get back to pattern writing and yammering about patterns again soon. that and maybe a walk would do me good. happy new year!
