Distraction and follow-through

February 22, 2009 - 9:01 am

So the Macho Ficchu is done, save only the finishing and the FO pictures.  Yay!  The stupid thing is that I stayed up til 4:30 working on it.  I was kept company the last couple hours by a good friend from Australia over Skype, or I never would have stayed up so stupid late.

I also did something that wasn’t on the agenda- I photographed my stash.  The pictures aren’t great because they were taken in the basement with a flash camera, so the color is off.  But they should at least help me remember what I have, once I link them to the stash database on Ravelry.

For today I want to do the final finishing on the Ficchu, which should be quick, get the knitting bags done, and then when Z gets home we’ll tackle the house cleaning.  If he is effective at it, I’d like to take him out to Target to spend his gift certificate from my family and also his allowance.  Oh, and the garden work, if it gets warm enough.  It peaked at 34° yesterday, so gardening?  Not so much.  Today is forecast to make it to 42°, which is vaguely plausible for digging holes in the ground.

For the moment I’m still lazy in bed.  Which I think is entirely justifiable, since it’s Sunday morning and I have only slept 4 hrs.  😀
