FFFfffffff....

I'm working on (yet another) My So-Called Scarf. I sent a friend who's a knitting beginner some purple Trabajos del Peru along with a pattern for the same thing. She has been afraid of trying more complicated patterns, so I told her she wasn't allowed to knit anything else with the yarn I sent. Also sent some samples of Soak along with tips on blocking.

When she finished her scarf after having ripped it out three or four times and I still hadn't made it through the first skein, I realized I've been busy/stressed. I need a vacation. An affordable vacation.

Single again, the front room of the house I stay in is currently under construction after massive water damage, work backed me into a corner and offered me a "promotion" to another shift that gave me less pay but the opportunity to advance (which I've been wanting for 2 1/2 years but cannot do in my current position) but also forced me to decide pretty much on the spot. I respond well to pressure, but I respond much less favorably to THAT kind of pressure and said no. The ex (who owns the house I live in) is going out of the country on a mandatory business trip for A MONTH. This conveniently coincides with the bulk of the home repairs. My blog, Life on Terra Cubus, has at least started to average 9 readers per post instead of the original 8. LMAO

And meanwhile, I can't finish a scarf to save my life. I just looked on Ravelry and see that I started this sucker over two months ago. Ffffff.... It's not difficult; it's just taking a back seat to mental health. Maybe when I finally finish it, that will be a great sign!

I find knitting (or spinning) to be a great stress reliever. Sit down and knit... very soon. It's cheap good mental health therapy.

MMario, my blog is called Life on Terra Cubus, and you can read it at www.terracubus.com if you want. It is not knitting related. LOL
