Like my title for this installment of Ginny's Yarn Along ? I think treading water would make a nice name for a knitting project, don't you agree? I imagine a long flowing scarf or shawl that cascades down to my knees or puddles at my feet using a silky turquoise yarn that I would knit in an undulating design. Something to wear to the beach? No. Too hot. Too much time to knit...never mind. Besides, if I wore a scarf that lengthy, I might end up like Isadora...
Actually, my knitting and reading this week have once again seen very little of me. Hence the title of this post. Treading water. It's not anything big. It's just a lot of 'little' things that are taking up my time again: helping the seniors find part-time employment, finalizing college stuff, trying to figure out a date to have a graduation party (sort of like trying to write the guest list for a wedding, I tell you), continuing on with school lessons, hoping the piano recital goes well, readying the house for family, realizing only yesterday that we need to call an exterminator, looking forward to dinner with a friend and her family... you get the picture.
After finishing my husband's scarf, I knit roughly two more inches of the Lace Ribbon Scarf. I like knitting this pattern design much more. It seems to go faster. Good thing I have 3 skeins since I'm on my 2nd skein now, and it looks like I'll definitely need the 3rd in order to have the scarf long enough. But as you can tell, I'm in no hurry...it'll get done...eventually.
Reading has consisted of beginning to read aloud the final two physical science books for my younger boys: Light and Sound. Good thing. We just finished the Magnets & Electromagnetism book in the series and all of us were getting sort of 'bored' with it. I think it's just that time of year.
