I’m just…tired. Our house (you remember we’re moving, right?) is almost finished, and so we’ll be moving very soon. Which is nice, the house is beautiful. But we’re to the point that almost all of my pattern books are packed up, and most yarn not currently in use is in a box. Turns out that I have a lot of yarn (mmm, could use more, though. :D).
In between the kids and packing, I’ve been able to get SOME work done on my ‘secret project’ (although the smock has, sadly, been on hold for almost a week). Because I’m using a lot of different colors, I’m really trying to finish up soon so that I can pack all the yarn I have draped across my sofa. I am…ALMOST 2/3 of the way through, and despite the fiddlyness and frustration, I think it’s one of the best things I’ve created in a while. Look for the pattern some time before the end of the year, you lucky, lucky ducks, you.
As for Bitacle…bleh. Bleh, bleh, bleh, bleh, bleh. I don’t delude myself that they made/are making millions off of my work, I sincerely doubt they’re stealing my traffic, since you pretty much have to search for my blog and Bitacle together to find their copy. I had someone tell me that their ads have been pulled (which is what we wanted, really, if they won’t delete the content they stole) so…just bleh. *UPDATE* Apparently, they have lost their Google advertising. So that’s good. Here‘s an article from Plagiarism Today about Bitacle’s future. I’m going to try to set it aside for now, and not think about it. Bleh. (/update)
I’m tired. Hopefully the blog will be back to chipper, photographically documented yarny craft content soon – but I’m going to busy for a few weeks.
My hat’s off to you trying to pack and chase kiddos around. Moving sucks and it’s hard to be a mom, pack up a household, and keep a shred of normalcy going so you don’t go completely out of your mind.
Moving can be crazy…i’m in the middle of it myself. And that’s just with me and my two cats. Can’t imagine it with 2 kids and a husband!
You commented on my blog about the sock monkey blanket – the pattern is in the Happy Hooker book if you were interested.
Breath, breathing is good & you can do it while talking to Baby #1 and feeding baby #2, which really can mess up a house just like thing 1 and thing 2 did. Don’t forget date night which was invented for times like this in our lives. Love you
