After some absolutely crazy weeks were a simple repeating shawl knit which I should of finished in one week took over five weeks. Yeap it has been that insane that I had not had a chance to finish the shawl. You know it is bad when you are that tired at night when you finally get in you go to sleep before you get your knitting out or even worse you fall asleep knitting and have to rescue dropped stitches because of your snoring. I was turning up knit night just for the sanity reality check. We have some lovely ladies and the double entendre and witticisms just come out fast and furiously.
So last weekend I was in the cold north and we had a total cold turkey weekend for the internet, email and my phone. Nope you can ring but I am not sodding going to answer it. It was blissful and I was surprised that I did not go into total withdrawal. The shawl that I was working on was finished and I did not start anything new. I had wool with me but the pattern books that I had with me did not inspire me. You can never be unprepared by not taking a pattern book and have a couple of balls of wool with you on a weekend trip – that would be totally insane. It would be like leaving the medication at home and risking a straightjacket moment with me. We had a great time playing tourists, conversation, laughing and playing as a family together. There were some funny moments and there were some insane moments such as casting a shawl off in the carpark of a tourist attraction cause daughter was demanding a shawl since it was that cold and she had no head covering.
Back to work on Tuesday was a "Oh I so don’t want to do this" day but I was still totally blessed out by the weekend that I actually only knitted a row of purl at knit night.
