Deadlines I Won't Be Meeting

As promised, I've got a bit of fiber to share today in the form of project updates.

DSC_0434Here is one of the socks that's currently on my needles. This is a simple sock in Fiesta Boomerang in a color called Alaska. I love this yarn soooo much. The colors are great and the yarn is soft. It almost makes me look forward to the colder weather when I can wear these socks. That's probably a good thing because it may be January before I finish these. So much for completing multiple pairs during the Summer of Socks. I think that there are just too many things competing for my attention right now.

DSC_0437Here is a supa-crappy picture of the shawl I'm working on. I like it so far and I think it'll be perfect with the dress. I just doubt that it'll be done in time to wear with the dress. It's not quite at the half way point. That's a problem because there is no Plan B. Either this shawl gets finished in a hurry or I wear a different dress. No good at all. Crap!

Both of these projects and a few more are in my bags, ready to hit the road. In about 24 hours I'll be giving my girls huge hugs and I can't wait. Some parents have their kids fly home or take a bus. I'm not sure how they do it. I can't wait even one extra minute to see my daughters. We'll be there with bells on when the gates open. I'm a little pathetic right now - barely contained. It's not pretty.

Awww, that's so sweet. Deadlines are meant to break. Relax, be kind to yourself.

That shawl is gorgeous and you'll wear the dress again when the shawl is finished. You must be so excited to pick up the girls!

So wait to wear the dress, the shawl is worth it! I hate when my girls go away even for a night! You're probably busy enjoying them right now!
