Just A Wee Bit Insane...

NaNoWriMo starts today. So that's 50,000 words (at least--but more importantly a complete story) I've gotta write in the next thirty days.

I am a little over halfway done with the blanket--I've got two weeks to finish it. Sure I can do it (I think), but I am also gonna freak out about it a bit.

I've got two other sizable projects that I would like to finish before this month ends. (This is not going to happen, but that won't stop me from trying.) I've already realized I need to back-burner the KAL sweater and finish the other project, which is not for me, first. Otherwise I will feel like a miserable excuse for a human being.

My daughter has recently discovered that it is SUPER fun times to plop down in my lap right on top of whatever project I am working on and refuse to move.

A friend has approached me about commissioning a couple of baby hats and I have already had to tell her I won't be able to work on them until after Christmas because I am so swamped craft-wise.

Yet despite all of that I am seriously thinking about taking a day or two of Yarn Time this week to make a pair of these (sans beads). What? I mean, it's cold in my office, and I can't be expected to reach my word count if my fingers are too frozen to type, right? Right? Anyone....?


Happy November, y'all. Let the games begin.


  1. I think you HAVE to make the gloves. Its like dieting...you cant deny yourself everything or else you'll quit. (it makes sense to me, lol)

  2. Thanks Amy! That is a great way of looking at it!
