The Case of the Rattling Brain


I didn't really mean to be incommunicado the past few days, but things at work have just done me in, and only because it's the day before Friday am I able to function at any proper level.  And seeing as it's Three on Thursday day, why not do a post with that prompt?

So here are Three Random Things Rattling Around in My Brain:

1.  Tonight I want to swatch for my next knitting project.  I attempted to do so last night, but it was not to be.  The yarn was not cooperative for winding, and my thoughts were too scattered for swatching properly.  I am hoping to knit a summer top.  Actually at this point, I am determined to knit a summer top.

2.  I'm not going to be able to get going on fixing up the garden this year until the first weekend of June.  This weekend is going to be rainy (as the whole week has been), and next weekend we plan to be out of town for Memorial Day.  Yes, I know I could do things during the week, but once I get home from work the idea of physical endeavors that are not absolutely required does not appeal.  Also, how did next weekend get to be Memorial Day already???

3.  This summer, I really want to do some sewing.  I managed to clean up a lot of crap that was in the craft/office/sewing room last weekend, so that I can actually make it to the sewing machine and clear off the sewing table of things completely unrelated.  I have a bit more to do, which will work nicely on this rainy weekend, and then I can get started actually doing something on said machine.  At the moment, I'm not sure what my first project will be, though I must admit that Kym's tunic has me itching to want to try something like that.  But since I haven't sewn for a while, maybe I'll start small and work towards that.

What about you?  Anything interesting rattling around with you?

A summer top sounds like fun. I've been thinking about that too since the MDSW when I saw several cute ones walk by. I knit one years ago that I loved and sadly, I've outgrown it. Or maybe it shrunk? Lol....

Sewing FTW! I love the tunics from Uniform - well written and EASY patterns! (Although darts must be adjusted for, ahem, less than perky breasts)

Not a lot happening here. I'm finishing some fingerless mitts and a baby hat. I've been sewing on a UFO quilt. Temperatures are reaching seasonal levels and the sky is clear. Life is good.

Cute tunic! I wish I could sew clothes. My skills are so bad... Years ago I took a sewing class and after a few weeks, they suggested I not bother coming back. Guess I'll have to stick to knitting.

Your whole post sounds like me. The sewing will be fun, what a girl needs.

I've been thinking of sewing this summer ass well. So far, just thinking though. Major cleaning needed prior yo doing that. And, yes! How the heck is Memorial Day already upon us?

House hunting, dodging rain drops and a bit of knitting.

That tunic is gorgeous. I am just hoping to knit a sweater, what have I become that I can't even knit a sweater anymore? Have a great weekend.
