Patience

Hello everyone. So sorry I have not been around much but life has been busy and some days there just aren't enough hours to do all that needs done. I have promised to write up and share that slipper pattern and please know I have not forgotten. Anyone who asked for it can be sure it is coming soon as I get some free time and when I am not so sleepy. The little bit of time I have in the evenings I force myself to keep eyes open and try to knit a bit. Lord only knows how crazy a job I would do trying to write up a pattern that late in the day. One evening I spent more time making mistakes. I believe I mentioned frogging the scarf pattern several times, then eventually changing the ribbing pattern to a garter stitch. I felt at least I was safe to knit every row. I was so tired of undoing rows to correct mistakes. That happens a lot when you try to do anything late at night when you are exhausted and too stubborn to call it a day. I might say I love to work with the yarn much better than to go to bed, but eventually sleep wins out. Many times I fall asleep in my chair to wake and pray I have not pulled my stitches from my needle. Most times I knit on a circular needle. I find it less cumbersome than straight needles and having to deal with 2. I will stop for now. I have been up since 6am and it is now 10pm....another long day ♥

  1. Hi Susanne. My goodness, I had no idea I have missed so many posts!!! I have been an erratic blogger lately. Busy here at home!
    Love the slippers. Loved the kleenex box for your Mama. Love the Kewpie dolls!!!!
    Love my visit today. I had to laugh at your description of night time, and fighting sleep. I have been guilty of that! Thus the lack of getting around to see all of my blogging friends!!

  4. I can't wait to get the slipper pattern, they look like so much fun to make. Rest up my friend. Autumn shores should be nearing an end in a few weeks and then hopefully you will get some time to rest.
    Hugs,
