Recently - and I mean very recently (a couple of days ago) - I started a new project. Awhile ago, I started one (A Dictionary of Tea) and I haven't been able to get into it very much - I just didn't like having to figure out which bits were supposed to be single strands, which were supposed to be two strands, etc. The pattern isn't very specific about it - just that the surrounding bits of each teapot should be single strands, etc. I just couldn't get into it. Maybe someday.
The other day, I picked up Collecting Shells. It's ginormous! I don't know what possessed me to start that one, but we'll see how it goes. It may be just another addition to the UFO pile, but I really like the design and it'll go well with Girl with Cosmos, which I finished in 2005 (shown below).
I really hope that I can get myself into the project - haven't really been able to complete anything in awhile. Just couldn't be bothered, I guess. I have far too many patterns sitting in a filing cabinet to sit on my behind and do nothing.
On a more personal note, I am getting to the "freaking out" stage where my daughter, who is 11, will be going off to high school in August. She'll have to either take the bus to school (as in public transport services) or walk 30 minutes to get there. It's definitely walkable, with time - but it's hard enough getting the girl out of bed at 7:30am for primary school, let alone the 6:30am that she's going to have to get up at to get to high school on time.
