It’s that time of year…My Mom’s Birthday and my Blogiversary…conveniently located on the same day so I won’t forget! Normally this would be a great day for a blog post…I like to knit things for Mom’s Birthday. Unfortunately, this year things have gotten in the way.
I started blogging when I was funemployed, awash with free time. This year, not so much. Having been through a series of not even close to ‘real’ jobs, I’m now back to work at a very real job.
Hello Organic Chemistry! You’re looking mighty fine today! Also, like you want some attention, so this will be brief!
Instead of an FO worthy of one’s mother, today, I give you one third of a sock. I’ve been dutifully carrying it with me, hoping to find time to squeeze in a row or two. I’ll take it anyway I can get it! This weekend that meant, knitting during brunch with friends. Luckily, my friends all understand, the knit must go on.
Even if it’s sideways. Eventually, a row here and a row there adds up. I’m almost to the heel! This is going to be a traditional gusset sock with a slip stitch heel.
Eventually. I’ll keep plugging away. Slow but steady wins the race! And eventually, I’ll even get Mom’s Birthday present done. It’s going to feature all those flowers I knit last fall.
It’s going to be worth the wait! I promise! I’ll even have time to orient the photos properly when the time comes! Until then, it’s tech difficulty and chemistry for me!
Happy Birthday Mom! Hope you’re having a great day! I’ll call you when I reunite with my phone! XOXO!
