I long for knitting...

... how can I tell I'm not getting enough knitting time in? (Other than the fact that neither the sweater or sock are growing.) I long to make a blanket. I've been looking at lots of blankets on Ravelry in my 30 second breaks (this is one of those).

I HATE blankets. BORING! Who wants to knit miles and miles of knit stitches? ME! I just want to knit.

This morning I finished my sample unit for the company I used to work for, so hopefully they will accept that and I can write a full unit. I am also super busy with freelance company #2, though not nearly as hectic of a schedule as last week. Tonight will be a very late night, but it is my fault- this morning I worked on other things (that needed to get done), and this afternoon I have been procrastinating, plan to go skating, and watch SYTYCD. No wonder nothing is getting done.

I also heard back from freelance company #1 some feedback on a lesson I wrote, and it was very positive. Since they were somewhat critical of one of my other submissions, I was very happy to hear they really liked this one. That bodes well for future assignments.

I had planned to post a picture of the Ain't No Sunshine sock, but alas, I've procrastinated enough, so here is another boring entry without a picture.

In skating news- I thought I had managed to not pull my hamstring yesterday, but today it's aching like crazy. Guess I can't handle attitude position. (While spinning it's the hip flexor that yells at me, but the next day it's the hamstring.) But it's exciting to have the start of a layback. Not that I'll EVER do one of those.

I know how you feel. I've been studying all day and now I'm longing to knit anything at all. I also have been planning all day so I can watch SYTYCD tonight. I can't wait to see all of the top 20 dance!

Blanket? Isn't it a little summery out there for blanket longing? Glad to know you are getting good comments on your work!

Ah, but Linda if I start a blanket in the summer it will be READY by winter. If I start it in the winter, then when summer rolls along I'll have a nice blanket :)

You know, if you have enough socks in your drawer, you can always knit me some. Or, you can teach me, but that would be hard via long distance ;p
