Sizzle Sputters

Oh man. I lost my mojo. At least for awhile, but I think that now that I am creating the darts in the front I should be motivated to motor on through this baby.

After that armhole situation I haven't been able to get myself started again. I would like to chalk that up to work taking up most of my time but...I have been spending time zoning out and not knitting. So there's that.

I had planned to get some major sock knitting in while I waited outside the school of the 1st little guy I pick up in the afternoon but one thing after another led me to being nearly late. Socky was in my purse though! Don't we always say it is the thought that counts?

In other news - I started working on a Disaster Preparedness Kit for here at home. Talk about depressing. That whole thing about needing a contact number for someone out of province/state who is unlikely to be lost in the same disaster (we live along a major fault line! my entire family lives along the same fault line) is the worst. I remember when I had to put together the kit for work and the pamphlet told us to do that for all of the children in care - and to have photo's of their family since the odds of seeing them again were not good - I had to put my work away and go to Starbucks. Ah yes...I cope well.

I am going to put in some non-necessities like toothpaste and Q-tips, a deck of cards, a journal, Burt's Bees travel kits. You know, little luxuries that won't take a lot of room. Then I thought - HA HA - an emergency sock kit. Think about it. The needles are tiny, one skein will do it and a pattern can be as small as one folded piece of paper. Talk about a sanity saver!

Enough disaster talk- I am off to bed or I will BE a disaster!

Hey - SS Socky III wouldn't load onto my computer for some reason so...no update for him. Maybe in another day or two.
