I have to apologize, I washed the windows yesterday. Normally, I know that action alone would bring on the rain. But, I thought I counter-balanced that when I fertilized the lawn. Wouldn’t you think?
Well, rain or shine, all my work is inside today anyway. Starting right here. Since I am quite new to blogging, I don’t know where to begin. There are so many things to explore, everything can become overwhelming if you let it… so, I thought the easiest way would be to add the things I am working on right at the moment. At the same time, I will be adding work to my portfolio section. I have quite a lot to add, so that may take a while.
This is what I’m doing in my down time, knitting (usually the only way I can watch TV. I must have ADD, or is it the opposite of ADD?). We (my kids and I) call this the ugly blanket. It’s ugly, there’s no doubt. But in it’s ugliness, I find beauty. It’s so soft and snugly. I’m not finished with it yet and it keeps me warm while I add on sections. Why am I knitting such an ugly blanket you ask? Well, I purchased a boat load of yarn at an estate sale a couple years ago…
this is only part of what I purchased. The rest is in a large storage tub. And, I bought it all for $2! Yes, that’s right, $2!! I don’t care if I never make anything out of them, they’re so pretty. But, the yarns I’m using on the blanket… were pretty on their own, but not in a basket. Plus, I didn’t have enough of one color to make anything. Not even a scarf. So the ugly blanket was born. Which shows that something doesn’t have to be pretty to be pretty (what?). Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (that’s better).
