When life gives you lemons…

As you know I’ve been M.I.A. for a while. Things have been hectic around here. Between traveling for work, coming home to tornadoes and not sleeping and eating properly has got me going bonkers. Then there’s the knitting. My beloved needles and yarn have sat on the side of my bed just waiting for me to pick them up and click, click, click. I tried to finish the top of my vest yesterday but ended up falling asleep. Sigh.

Since I can’t seem to get a stitch in edge wise, I’ve decided to take the knitting with me to work and sit it next to my monitor as a friendly reminder….”KNIT ME IF YOU LOVE ME”. I only have the top and the ruffles on the sleeves to finish. On a good day, I could have that done in a couple of hours. Now it seems as though time is running through my fingers like sand. Ugh! I barely have time to style my hair farless knit a top. I think it’s the change in weather and many other situations in my life. I can’t say I’m depressed because I feel well emotionally. However, just thinking about how crazy things are is wearing me down. I MUST KNIT this weekend or else, I may just go postal!

On a lighter note, I’ve started drawing again. I still lack the zeal and the creative flow but I’m sure I’ll figure out how to get it back somehow. Over time, I will be back to my artsy fartsy self. ‘Til then, pray to the craft gods that I hang in there.
