Around and Around

I have been knitting on this Roundabout Leaf Tank and at the same time I feel like I’m spinning in circles myself, reaching out to grasp anything that will stop me and supply me with bearings to get back on track.  I feel like time has slipped away completely and I am hardly sure of what day it is and what I’m supposed to be doing.  I wish I had more to blog about this week, but finding words and photographs has been a bit beyond me.  I assure I am well, and that may be the cause entirely for my absence.  I tend to live a very full life and then crash into weeks of doing absolutely nothing to recuperate.  I think I am headed for a few weeks of relaxation soon, but probably not until the end of May.

I leave for Seattle next week (so excited!!) and I am hoping to have this tank done by that time, so that I can begin something else guilt-free.

On a side note – I was thinking about what to take actually, and last year around this time we went to Washington, D.C., and I started the Semele wrap that was never worked on once we got back.  Perhaps I will make this my “traveling shawl” and bring that.  And maybe some socks, just in case.  Wow, looking at the Ravelry link for Semele I can’t believe I ever put it down – it’s gorgeous!

Anyway, I was hoping to have more completed of this tank by now, and then I thought about it and realized that I only seem to have a handful of knitting hours each week, and if I’m not working on it, it’s not working on itself, so it’s not getting any longer when I’m not there.

The point I’m at now is pretty mindless, so I am hoping to whack out a  bunch of it this weekend (in between the parties and circus shows and stuff).  The real challenge will come in the shoulder straps, which I want to heavily modify to be less chunky than what the pattern calls for.
