Lost Weekend...

I promised you an update tonight, but I've got nothing much...

Spent the entire day working on a new bag prototype. It ended sliced to smitherines (I'm lethal when I'm ticked at myself, and the bag suffered from my wrath). However, the good news is that I was forced to lie down with a lot of upper back, shoulder, and neck pain afterwards, and in the process of unkinking muscle spasms, I may have achieved a breakthrough, and the next version of the prototype may be more successful - time will tell.

Of course, that meant a wasted day, on top of yesterday's more or less wasted day. This does not bode well for my stock at Sedalia, but we'll do what we have to do, and take lots of orders! *wink*

I did create a new "mini-baglet"

5 inches wide, it will hold tiny things in your knitting bag or, if you're like me? Change and debit card in my purse.

So...with so little to show for my Nana Sadie Rose working weekend, I thought I'd try an old trick.

I'll distract you with yarn:

My first STR Goody Goody Feather and Fan sock is growing apace.

And we have an ailing member of our Sunday knitting group (which I've missed the past two months, thanks to shows), and we're making a blanket:

Frankly? This is about the speed of my brain power tonight. (I haven't made a mistake here, yet, but ... just give me a minute, I'm sure I won't get through the weekend without one more!)

Someone was not happy that I decided she'd had enough of a respite and I was going to take her photo for the blog:

Ok, but I'm going to squint if you're detemined to ruin my day, too.

Ah, not a wasted day, in that you had to work through those iterations of that bag to get to the right place. It was time that had to get spent. Now you have and can proceed.

The baglets are sweet. And such a useful size.

Days like that are frustrating! But I'm glad to hear there's a brainstorm as a result of it :) The new socks are gorgeous, and perfect for spring!

Your new little baglet is nice and practical. Love those colors in the STR socks. As someone already said it's perfect for spring knitting.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
