It's been a rough week with work and I'm grateful it's finally Saturday. I've pronounced a lot of deaths this week, and that's really unusual for me. In fact, I've pronounced one death every single night and tonight, two. Doing this is so rare for me, that I often go a month at a time without having to do this task. I never really thought this would take such an emotional toll, but that was before I got clobbered with the likes of a week like this. I feel drained.
Enough already! I'm crying uncle to the cosmos.
To help alleviate the stress of the week, I knit one neck warmer and then went up to the yarn store this morning to buy buttons. I should have gone to the fabric store since while I find fabric pretty to look at, I'm not tempted to buy. Of course there was a sale which was the underlying reason I went shopping for buttons in the first place.
The idea for what I plan to make started with the neck warmer made of my creamsicle hand spun, and grew from there. I chose only yarns in that color family, but these are yarns outside of what I usually play with. The project, a feather and fan shawl of many different yarns should be interesting and with luck, it will take my mind off my work.
Now I need only find all that yarn I spun last year. I know half of it is waiting to be frogged, but I have no clue where the rest of it's hiding. Maybe I should get to unpacking that yarn room.
Here's hoping the yarn turns up soon, and that death takes a little holiday for me next week.
