My Problem with the Plunge

Don't get me wrong. It's not the Plunge's fault. I am a fickle woman. The grass is always greener near someone else's project. You see when I signed up for the 52 Pair Plunge, I didn't want to knit anything but socks. And now that I'm, what, three months in I can't seem to finish a pair. It's not even a case of second sock syndrome. I can't seem to finish the first one. So far I have a number of socks on the needles, all unfinished:
*Moss stitch for Zoe
*Embossed Leaves

So what have I been doing instead? Sweater, and scarves.

Zoe's Haiku

This one's called 198 yards of Heaven. I found it on Ravelry and I'm finally using the Ming I bout in San Fransisco three years ago. It really is Heaven to work with. I can't wait to drape it around my neck. It's getting cold enough around here to do that. Maybe that's my problem I'm working seasonally.... But that would make socks a smart choice.... So here's my new goal. I will do my best to finish two pairs of socks before I work on the munchkins next cardigan. Oh yeah did I mention I cast on for another one. And I've been working on my Minimalist Cardigan too. I love sweaters but I've never been so excited to knit them. Maybe my hormones are just out whack. It's as logical as any other excuse.

For the Indiana Girls here are some pictures from the first day of school:

Another Year Brings More Changes

That's my birthday girl. She's four now, and a self proclaimed big girl. She's attending 4K and loving it! In fact she becomes very maudlin on the weekends because there is no school. I know this will change so I'm trying to enjoy while I can. She is desperate to write everyone's name and read by herself. She started to sound out words on her own the other day. It really freaks me out that she's growing up so fast. But everybody goes through that right?

This school year is also very exciting because I will be graduating in December. After 16 years of "on and off again" schooling I will finally be graduating. I almost don't believe it yet. Life without homework and papers, I just can't imagine. Well I can actually because this summer was blissful. I felt like I didn't get anything done, but I also avoided migraines, so I'll take it. But I just had to share my little princess. That is her goal in the life, by the way. She wants to be a princess when she grows up. What a girl!

This weekend I'll post about my 52 Pair plunge drama, so stick around!
