Slipping From My Brain

Ever completely forget something you’ve done a million times?  My brain decided it did not remember how to make a slipknot this morning.  I’m made TONS of them while casting on knitting and crochet projects.

I’m not sure what happened.  Perhaps it’s the new fake nails I put on last night.  Perhaps I was thinking too hard about it.  Making a slipknot is something I just do.  I don’t think about it.  My fingers have that muscle memory built into them, just like knitting and purling.

We all have so-called “brain farts” from time to time.  It’s just funny when it happens because no matter how hard you try, you just can’t do the simple task that you want to do, no matter how many times you’ve done it.  Ever happen to you?


Crafty Meandering Thoughts

My crafting life needs to get back to a more relaxed pace as it was before Christmas.  I want to start another sweater.  I want to knit hats for the local cancer center.  I want to find something really nerdy and knit it. 
I need a rest from the frenetic pace I had gotten caught up into since Christmas, knitting things for gifts and for the Snowflake Gala.  Right now, I have a hat started for the cancer center, and am working on a lacey spiral scarf that I am so keeping for myself. 
Even though I have a few orders for knitted items, I will get them done, but I need to relax with my needles and do something for myself.  Selfish?  Perhaps.  I need to take care of myself right now.  And that’s what I am going to do.
I also need to get back to you, my dear readers!  I know I haven’t been blogging as much as I would have liked, but life caught up with me, as it has habit of doing.  So, in the next few days, watch for some new updates and some lovely things!  I am going to do my best to get back on track.
