I'm Tired...

As much as I love my new job and the experience I'm gaining, the hour long commute is driving me crazy and sucking away my will to do anything but stare slack-jawed at the TV in the evenings. I feel crappy for doing it, but I just don't have the will or interest in doing anything else. I hardly play any computer games, though on weekends I usually catch up on my addiction. But it's not all tales of woe and mouth-breathing. I am knitting a little. It seems to be ramping up. Maybe it's because I'm too ambitious. I'm making stockings for my H's family: Mom, Step-dad, sister, myself, and H. I started about a week ago. (It's November, the lighting sucks, so no pics yet) Yes, 6 Weeks, 5 stockings. I know it's not going to happen. I just don't have that much time. But I'll be happy if I get two done. I've decided to make felted stockings that will stand up on their own. So using the Fuzzy Feet Pattern from, I'm just going to knit the leg a lot longer and pray that they're not too small.

I've also started a more complicated pattern. Hanami. Luckily I do have picture of my FIRST cast on. Currently, I'm on #3, but my stitch counts look good, my life line is in, so I think I'm okay now. We'll see.
