Welcome to December. Yesterday was just one of "those" days. Nothing was right. Everything was annoying. Mabel was a beast (well, she is, but that's beside the point), every time I turned around Fletch was in my way (literally, physically in my way), work emails found me dealing with idiots. Whew! I was happy to finally go to bed and I am happy to turn the page on the calendar today.
Of course before going to bed there was unravelling - it was just that kind of day. First I ripped out Bonnie's mitt and then I knit one in different yarn...different pattern...for my friend Leslie. That one was almost finished last night when I decided it was just awful. Too tight, messy knitting, you name it. I knew it earlier on and kept knitting anyway. Why? Whatever, that was ripped out completely last night. Then I spent some time looking at patterns and I "think" I have finally come onto something to make for Bonnie.
If it works out, I'll let you all know what it is! LOL. Obviously the yarn does not want to be mitts. Neither does the purple yarn.
Reading has been along similar lines. Nothing is quite coming up to my expectations. I sure hope I am not getting back into a reading rut. I did finish Mercy Falls and it was good, but a bit on the graphic side for me. Also, his (William Kent Krueger) books (and Linda Castillo's series) are beginning to feel as though they are all the same. I'm hoping it was just my mood and I will try the next (in both series). Meanwhile I am halfway through Georgia and it is ok. Just ok. I would like it to be more about her art and less about her relationship with Stieglitz. So again the reality doesn't come close to matching what my expectations were. It might be that I'm in a funk of some kind.
No real plans for today other than laundry and some work. Still waiting on an email from someone at work so I can finish a project.
As usual, I'm linking up with Kat on this Unraveled Wednesday to talk about making and reading. Go ahead and take a look!!
