I am easily distracted

…and I have difficulty keeping a track of what days of the week it is. All I could remember was today I was to do one of my blogs…guess which one it was supposed to be? Yeah, surprise, surprise! This one!

Guess which one I did? Not this one!

So because my OCD I’m going to have repeat the content I already put on Blogger.

I think I need to give myself some alarm that tells me which one to do when 🙂

Alcott Vest

Today is another day and thankfully there are more hours to put craft into to keep fidgety hands busy!

It does puzzle me why I can sit hunched over a cross stitch or drawing up a picture or nutting out a new technique I’ve  never tried knitting before for hours! But when I have to tidy a bathroom or hang out laundry…blimey! It suddenly takes on the proportions of some enormous, insurmountable chore, sucking all the fun out of my creativity and rudely breaking in to my own little world. It’s so inconvenient!

So what have I achieved so far this week?

The Marvellous Vest is all done and put away. I dusted off the Monty Python and the Holy Grail cross stitch and have actually managed to progress to the next line of characters! The light issue still remains so I can only do it during the day, so at night I knit.

I’m knitting a pair of socks with a lace insert with some yarn I dyed about 2 years ago but I still don’t have a pic of those so I’m keeping them as a surprise for later when they look more like socks.

Also I realized I had accumulated a large number of left over cone yarns with ridiculously thin yarns on them that I really couldn’t use in their present state. So I dragged them all out and combined a lot of them to make useable yarn for beanies. I must say, so far I am very pleased with the results! Much better than I’d expected and since they’re almost all acrylics, they should be easy to wash. I’m going to see how many I can make and then I’ll donate them to my local charity.

So there you have it. Does anyone else suffer from excessive creativity and nil enthusiasm for useful accomplishments?

Maybe it’s just me 🙂
