I don’t think I have ever been more thankful for a Friday than I am today. I’m not sure what was different about this week but it has left me mentally exhausted and weary. Most nights after work this week I didn’t even have an ounce of energy left to knit. It becomes a pretty sad state of affairs when you don’t have enough energy to do one of the main things that helps you relax and destress. I’m hoping to gain my knitting mojo back over the weekend.
Side note, the LCD screen I ordered to replace the broken one on my laptop arrived the other day. I was really excited until I learned that it was the wrong one. Apparently I should have let my hubby double check the model before I actually ordered it. So that one will be shipping back tomorrow. Hubby ordered the correct one, which hopefully will arrive tomorrow. Live and learn, I guess. In the meantime, I am improvising with my iPad and a Bluetooth keyboard. On the updside the keyboard has a backlight and I can choose from 7 colors! I am currently enjoying a teal color.
I have been able to do little bursts of knitting during lunch at work a few times this week. And I did do several rows this evening. I’ve made it to my third color on my Fade Shawl. I am seriously loving these colors. I am definitely in a mint green / teal mood here lately. I want everything to be in mint and teal colors. They just calm me. They are refreshing to my eyes. I think I will make some fingerless mitts with the leftover yarn from the Fade shawl project.
Here’s the latest color, it is another Madelinetosh color called Nassau Blue. It’s a nice teal color with hints of green in it. This is the color meld section going from Glass Bottom Boat to Nassau Blue. It’s a subtle difference between the two colors. But one is just a hair darker than the other.
I don’t know if I will get another post in next week or not. My baby is turning five on May 10th, and we have weekend birthday celebrations planned. I cannot believe it has been five years since I brought my baby girl home from the hospital. She has been such a joy. She is basically my world, and while I am happy to celebrate her 5th birthday I am also a little sad that she is no longer a baby. She is just growing up so fast my heart aches just a little.
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful weekend fully of yarnie goodness.
