My bad.

I just haven’t been knitting--or doing much of anything else!

Two weeks now, and I still haven’t finished a 3 hour project.(a double knit potholder)

The red socks (started back in JUNE!) still aren’t finished.

Other WIP are no where, and even startitis has been an issue—A skein of beautiful silk tries to tempt me—colorful yarns beckon, but nothing works.

I ran the contest, awarded prizes, (mailed them off*) and just haven’t had any energy to do anything—anything at all.

I have mounds of laundry to do—some needs to be washed, (dried, folded) some needs to be just put away –I have been dressing from the laundry basket, not the closet!

And while my freezer is full of prepared dinners, but zapping is too much effort—I have been supping on salad and yoghurt—or sometimes just fresh fruit—though I did treat myself to some Chinese food last week –a dinner out with a friend, and then finished up the leftovers the next night.

I am back to work—Working again at “the” internet cafĂ©—Now located at 101st Street Broadway (come visit!)—the locations is in contention for the world’s smallest store--It’s about 50 feet deep (front to back) but less than 6 feet wide!

It’s amazingly well designed—my cubby is a bit cramped, (but 3 times the size of the customer’s internet stations!) The neighborhood is wonderful, and Broadway is Broadway, the neighborhood associations have done some nice planting in the islands, and bright colorful flowers are eye candy.

Well, summer is coming to an end, and the summer doldrums will pass too.
Already, the nights are cool—and today is a precursor of those wonderful days of autumn—clear, clear blue skies.. sunny but a comfortable 70° something outside.

On day soon, there will be a cool breeze, and the urge to knit will be awakened…
I’ll awake chilled, and look for a pair of wool socks, and want to knit more…and everyday, I’ll go on and on about what I’m knitting now.. but till then..

But your cast-on videos provide solace to all and sundry:)
Take care and enjoy the fall:)

You'll get your knitting mojo back now that the weather is cooling down. I have been having a hard time starting/finishing stuff myself.

I hope you're soon cooled off and more energetic. Heat can really slow a person down!
Glad you're back at work!
