I’ve been sort of silent around the blog and flickr lately because my disk drive is broken and my ancient (read: 7 year-old) camera records the pictures onto a mini disk.
I’ve kept up with my 365 photos, which is much harder to do without the fun of uploading them to the flickr group(s). Of course, our PC is broken again (@#&^$!) so I have no way to access the pictures right now.
Finishing your knits can be also feel a little less satisfying without posting the results of your FO shoots. I’ve finished the mittens for the boy twin, which I managed to make two different sizes. Count your rows people, count your rows.
I’ve also finished a hat for the husband(!!!) out of some black Malabrigo. It’s one of those over the head, face covering jobies, that Missy said I looked like a ninja in. That remark prompted lots of bad ninja moves on my part ;)
I finished it right on time, too. While we’re all warm and snuggled in at home, the husband is out battling snow :( He works very hard people. I should make him a hat for every day of the week.
I’ve also started a new script. Ironically, the beginning is giving me trouble, whereas the end is usually the problem. I know exactly how this one ends, and every hateful emotional word that must be said before it’s all said and done. How to get the woman on her journey, in a convincing way, is proving troublesome.
Let’s see, what else? I’m reading The Secret Garden. Which has been helping me…..
HOLY SHIT! Just as I was writing, the above problem solved itself!
….with the emotions in the script. Mary’s cross attitude and emotional journey toward being a normal child/person fits with the theme of my script.
I’ve also made peace with the way that I work. As long as I’m working for me I’m going to stop beating myself up for straying off of a given project. I’ve given myself license to drift. One day I’m desiging a sweater, the next I’m writing again, the next can find me happily knitting from a pattern. Since I’m the boss of me, I’m going to embrace it. Who knows what I’ll assign myself tonight!
