Most people who have attempted to keep up a blog would have to cop to the fact that coming up with something to write, especially something to put on the blog every day, can sometimes be the toughest thing. Repeated weekly themes help give structure and focus to the thinking process and in the past I have participated in a few. Weekending, which Amanda of Habit of Being started, is the perfect way to start off the week and to keep you looking for blog-able moments during the weekend. Well, I wasn't that good at that, but I can share a little about my weekend with some photos.
It was button obsession weekend. There were trips for buttons, one of them longer than most would go just to look at buttons, but it was to the Fiber Festival of New England, so I got to look at other things, too. I may have left with other things as well, or may not have.....(Okay, I did, but there is a crop of new babies that need sweaters!)
I blocked a sweater this weekend, and as the actual knitting was coming to an end I started the search for buttons. Many buttons have been chosen as 'the button' and rejected and as it stands right now the sweater might never be worn because I cannot settle on a button. Oh well. It was a fun knit.
I spent entirely too much time placing, removing and replacing the current finalists.
I've decided which button I am going to use...........
About twenty times. Every time I am firm in my decision, I take another look and change my mind.
So, to distract myself from that I have been obsessing over my knitting. My current knitting (NaKniSweMo dontcha know), my future knitting, knitting I wish I could make work.... I am overwhelming myself with all of the knitting! I had better live a loooonnnnggg time.
A few other weekend details:
- Birthday dinner for the daughter's boyfriend was fun
- Experimenting with Apple Martini recipes.
- Very successful.
- The drive out to The Big E to look at pretty things and see some lovely fiber people
- Looking at you Judy!
- and you Heather!
- Listening to this and, while enjoying would be the wrong word for a book like this, I am finding it an interesting and compelling read.
- And Carole, between you and me, there may have been some lolling around.
2012. Fourteen. I would have done one of those survey thingies for the buttons, but since I have about sixteen readers at this point (neglect the blog and you know what happens....) it hardly seems worth it. Feel free to leave every opinion you have. About the buttons, that is. ONLY THE BUTTONS! During this particular week it is important to be clear on that. Know that I am sure to go with popular opinion do whatever I want anyway. If I can decide what it actually is that I want.
