No Hurry

And I'm back to knitting the Calash:

Last week I showed off niece's birthday present. I finished that the week before. 

I haven't been doing a lot of knitting lately. Part of that is summer, but the biggest part of it is that I've been busy with summer school teaching. (Oh, the lesson planning... Every night it's been a scramble of what I'm going to do with the classes the next day.) 

But there are moments when I need that physical white noise. Luckily, I have this nice little project that's started. The hard part is completely done. It's just a matter of some almost mindless knitting until the thing is finished. 

I do need to start thinking about starting some new projects soon. I need to go through my yarn stash and clean things out. But until I have the mental space to really start some things, at least I have this to keep my hands busy. For the moment.

It's slow going, but I'm in no hurry.

  2. Time to start thinking of those Christmas presents! I'm not sure anything can top those octopus hats! (Lisa, Lisa's Garden Adventure)

  4. I love those mindless, white noise projects. They really do help clear out your head.

  5. Well, it looks fantastic and I'm glad it helps. My wife does the same thing to clear her mind. She says 'I can zone out and let things go and then, when I come back, there's a hat!'

  6. I do online jigsaw puzzles for white noise. One of these days, I’ll surprise myself and try some of the projects I bookmark. :-) It’s going to be very hot tomorrow. Take care.

  9. I'm not much of a knitter during the summer either. My hands get sweaty and then the yarn doesn't slide on the needles as easily.

    1. Yes! This. It's not too terrible for crocheting, though. Of course, I'm not planning new because I'm busy lesson planning, but that will pass soon enough.
