I have been stressed.  Let's not mince words, life has been on edge as of recently.  My new bank card hasn't come in the mail yet, so I'm forced to wait to cash back pay from last year and Christmas checks.  I had a test today, I've got a presentation tomorrow, and I still don't quite know how I'm going to bang out that term paper due in four weeks.  Homework for class A doesn't make any sense, I have to unload the dishwasher, and there's a pile of laundry in the corner of my room that won't wash itself.

So, my knitting has been blah.  I started this sock for W over the weekend, when the needles I was knitting Zucchi's sweater on broke:

The yarn is from the take and replace swap, just a simple stockinette sock with a kercheif heel.

And last night, I started a Jaques Cousteau Hat for my brother.


The pluses of these projects is that they're easy to do.  I can knit while I read, and in class, which helps me focus and worry less.  It's nice to have some easy projects once in a while, ones that I don't need a pattern for or whose pattern is just tres simple.


  1. Hope the stress eases up soon.

    Seems like a lot of people are having a rough time of it right now.

  2. I lOVE the socks. THe yarn is coming into a lovely pattern. GLad it is helping you destress. Perhaps some chocolate is in order...

  3. I agree about the simple projects. You just need them sometimes.

    Hope the stress eases up -- the knitting should help!
