Random Musings

Not sure exactly what the problem is. I have LOADS of gorgeous yarn waiting to be knit. I have patterns. I know what I want to do, but I just can't seem to manage it. Every time I cast on I realize I've fucked it up and have to frog it back.

I've been on the Cape for over a week, with my family. The Crohn's has been bad lately. Ugh. But the knitting is normally such a help. Takes the mind off the pain. Lately, though... not so much.

And WHY am I so trepidatious about starting a freakin' sweater? WHY? I've only made one before. It came out fine, but it was just a sleeveless tank thing, knit in the round, and was super easy. But I know I can do this. I just need to. It'll be the hourglass sweater from LMKG. In Cash Iroha. In this GORGEOUS green color-

Ooh, I love this yarn. So. Much. And I've had it for nearly a year, so it's time to get on it, already. Ok, going to try and go for it. Fingers crossed. I'll start with a sleeve. And if it all goes pear-shaped... I'll FROG it!!

Speaking of which, I do actually have a frog. His name is Cecil, and he's a White's Tree Frog- litoria caerula
He looks like this, though this is not him:

Cecil enjoys crickets, a nice misting, and marching band music. Or, maybe he hates marching band music. I'm pretty sure he loves it, though. Any time he hears it, he calls his little heart out. Oh... and AXE body spray. Don't ask me how I know he loves this stuff, but man, it really gets him going...
