I am too full to knit. I have decided this is my “the dog ate my homework” excuse for why I haven’t got a lot of knitting done this past week. Life has been busy with my parents in town, a party I hosted, long phone calls received, etc. I have had too much “special” food this week. Dinners out, party buffets, pre-Thanksgiving dinner (for my parents to enjoy with their kids since we won’t be together for the real day)…it is just too much. I get home and yes, there is knitting to do and yes, there is plenty of knitting-friendly television to watch and even yes, I want to knit. But I haven’t. No energy I guess.
There is no end in sight either. This weekend is going to be full of special meals and family gatherings. Understand I am not complaining about it…I love spending time with my family and I love food. So this weekend is going to be great. I just need to make it to the gym more then I have been able to in the last couple of weeks and then I think I am good.
As far as knitting is concerned, last night I decided enough is enough and after a special dinner out with my dad and his girls (my two sisters and I) I finally finished the right front of Paula and spent some time with Butterfly. It felt great. So great in fact that I think I need some knitting goals to keep me on track. I am too flighty. Maybe I need to set due dates or something. I need to do something because I have projects on the needles, a hat and scarf I want to make for me for late fall, yarn I want to buy for a new sweater, AND a new nephew coming in November who needs knitted goods (my third time as an Auntie-yea!)
First things first, I need to complete my projects on the needles. This weekend I am going to block the pieces of Paula that are done and work on the front of Butterfly. My plan is to finish both of these projects by October 16. There, a due date. Let’s see if that works.
P.S. To a particular former member of the popular yet critically unrecognized singing duo “The Two-ettes”, I can’t wait to see you this weekend. Let’s get our song on. Although it won’t be as much fun without k-dub here getting annoyed at us, I am sure we can still enjoy ourselves.

Did you eat any special nut-encrusted food items? These can be especially hazardous to knitters.
Queenie! LOVE the Blog.. love the hats.. and love your cute sweater that you wouldn’t look at for weeks. I understand the whole “do I reseam” issue.. what have you decided to do? It’s getting cooler.. so you need to be able to wear it.. um.. knitting during gilgirls this week? After ‘tute?
How cool are you? my goal is to be one of your “p.s.” comments on one of these blogs. SO proud of you! You’re my hero!
I love your blog….so interesting and fun…it makes me smile. AND I agree totally about the opera gloves…a little too impractical for such beautiful yarn…a scarf would be better! Checking out knitting stores in Hong Kong. I am shocked…there are more than one!
