I Give Up

I apparently can't update with any kind of regularity. It does mostly have to do with my hesitation to even begin to upload photos here. I am just lacking in the kind of patience that will take me right now.

What am I up to? I am making a Montego Bay scarf (Rav link) out of Happy Hands Toe Jamz sock yarn -- colorway "Pictures of Lily." I hope that link will work to make up for the fact that I cannot bring myself to do photos. I will find it in me again eventually. Right now, though, to write this I am actively ignoring the two year old who is throwing shoes on the floor in a heap. Yes, I am a baaaad mother, but right now I need a break, since I have been trying to get him to take a nap for the past 3 hours. Joy. I will admit that I am not enjoying this stage too much. So it goes -- I know it'll pass. Just want to know: when??

When I have a moment to give some actual attention to a project (rare, but an occasional 10 minutes here or there), I am also working on the Fern Garden Scarf from Bad Cat Designs (Ravelry link). I am doing it in a kind of cayenne colored Jade Sapphire's Lacey Lamb and am loving it. Well, I don't know how I'll feel about the scarfy/shawl thing because I am new to the nupps. I do know that the yarn is soft and dreamy. I hope that it doesn't pill too much -- that is a definite concern for me.

Other than that, I've been working on the business plan and that's taking all of my so-called free time. I need to stop here to figure out what the heck my son is up to. This is definitely a lame post, but at least I did it! Ciao for now.
