"I'm afraid of nothing except being bored." - Greta Garbo
Do you remember when during summer break as a child you would get tired of the same old games, books, television shows, and begin to whine "I'm bored" until your parents would take you to the lake or out for ice cream? Often I envy those lazy summer days, especially when I've just had a crazy week with way too much to do like this one. For at least a week, I've been looking longingly at my knitting, knowing I had no time to work on it. Hopefully, things will get a little easier as the semester winds down.
For the most part, I find that these days even if I have free time I am never bored, and I generally like it that way. The way I figure it, those dozens of projects I've got going on all at once are keeping my mind sharp! (Maybe, you never know right?) Speaking of not getting bored, my birthday yielded a wealth of new knitting books.
There are so many new projects I want to start! I included the Johnny Cash CD in the photo because it will provide a musical accompaniment to my knitting. Come to think of it, Johnny Cash reminds me of my childhood too. Now all I need is a rainbow poncho, some bell bottoms, and I'm set to go!
Thanks for all your wonderful input on the baby items! I have decided that you are all correct and the mint green/blue combo blanket is perfectly fine for a boy. Here is a photo of the finished blanket, with the satin blanket edging and the patches embroidered on:
It feels so soft and cuddly!
