Smoky Mountain Colors

I no idea what to title this. LOL.

Life's road lately has been pretty up and down hill. Well maybe not lately, more like the first of the year. But things took a strange turn over the weekend. And you don't know how much I would love to share with you about it, but for legal reasons I have to sit here with it all by myself. But, lets just say that for some people rushing head on into things can prove to be disastrous.

I on the other hand believe that I have found a new home. Now to get out of this one. LOL. You know all those hours of knitting, looking at those needles and each stitch, not looking up at the things around here I could have been doing is catching up with me. Actually, it's more like going through boxes, closets, drawers and stuff like that. We regularly clean out our old clothes and things we don't wear, but some of this stuff was packed away to keep when the kids were little and have to be gone back through. Anyway, back to the house. It's a beautiful contemporary home on a wooded corner lot, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, loft, den newly painted, new carpet and stainless appliances. I just love this house. And most of the colors they painted are colors that I adore. So now I have to get this house cleaned up, a few repairs and sold. I am so motivated to get it all done now.

In the knitting world, I am still working on the second prayer shawl. It's coming a long slowly. But it's very relaxing. I have this stirring in my knitting soul, to start a pair of light weight summer socks, but I feel bad about the fact that I have two pair of socks on needles sitting here looking at me. I guess because they are very detailed and I couldn't just sit down and knit without really thinking and watching the pattern, that I got burned out on them. And the fact that they are heavy Fall and Winter socks. So we'll see about the summer socks. I really miss the days where I could knit for a few hours at a time with no interruptions. But maybe there will be those days ahead again.

Wow! Sounds like the perfect house for me! The commute might be a bit hard though.

There is plenty of time until fall. Why knit something that you are not enjoying? Go ahead. Pick up some fresh summer yarn, a simple pattern, and knit what you want to!

Good luck selling the house. I hope this will be a good move for you and your children.

I agree with Jackie, knit whatever you want. Those other socks will be there when you feel like knitting them.
