One Day I Will be Organized

I promise!  Unfortunately, that day is not today.  And, I doubt it’s going to be tomorrow.  Maybe next week.  Or, next month.

I cannot find the cord to my camera.  This is most likely due to the habit I have of carrying my laptop with me all over the house, along with any contraptions I might have plugged in to the laptop, especially my camera.  My camera also has an oddly sized memory card, which seems to be impossible to find a computer I can slide the card into to be read.

So, in short, all of my photographs taken this weekend of……my completed Klimt sweater, my Sunday Reconstructed project, and the dress I just cast on for Ellette’s birthday….yeah, you won’t be seeing those for a few more days.

Yesterday, my friend Joshua Safford, asked me to help him paint a few signs to put on his newly constructed wagon to carry his mushroom table around with him when he does his storytelling and magic.  (If you haven’t guessed it, he’s a professional storyteller that uses faeries and other fantasy creatures for the basis of his work.)  We spent much of the afternoon at Tom Thumb and then sprawled on the floor of my studio painting and listening to steampunk music.

Perhaps we incited the faeries to steal my cables so I could not show you the work they have inspired in us?

Today, I have been inspired with a design for Ellette’s birthday dress.  It was difficult this morning to take some necessary measurements without her guessing that I was going to start making something for her.  She doesn’t know what yet, which is good.  She has recently had this obsession for pouring over my knitting magazines and finding all of the pictures of kids/girls in knitted items and asking if they come in her size.  (Yeah, you can be jealous of me for having a daughter appreciative of my creative outlets).

In any case, I am using that purple cotton yarn I snagged from Knit Whiz and this morning I knit a swatch to get my gauge.  My obsession for the practicality of the provisional cast-on meant I spent a good deal of time fiddling with that, along with stitch count for pattern repetition in the round and shaping methods.  The provisional cast on is purely so that I can knit the top first, then knit the skirt to whatever length my amount of yarn will permit.

Maybe my excitement for my works-in-progress is facilitating the disorganization…
