I had planned to do some color work knitting on a slouch hat and managed to get three inches of ribbing done in my main color, an off white, then started the Fair Isle pattern in a kettle dyed teal/blue/green and decided I had bitten off more than I can chew at the moment.
I used to have no problem reading a chart and knitting away while the TV was on and Brad and I carried on a conversation. Not. Happening. My frustration level is too high and my ability to concentrate is out the window. I suppose I’ve still got some mild anxiety issues hanging on that I thought had gone.
I’ll think of something else to do for the Knit-A-Long another day. I’m going back to the cotton dishcloths and my Exploding TARDIS socks. I’ve still got a way to go on the ribbing for the socks. I had high hopes for the hat. Now all I want to do is take a hot shower and go to bed. The detox is kicking my butt again, too.
It’s been a long day and I’m ready to crash. Tomorrow is another day…

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
