I didn’t make it through the entire photography challenge. Sigh. I don’t know what happened. The assignments quit speaking to me I guess. I couldn’t think of a way to make them interesting, and I didn’t want to do it if I couldn’t think of some way to make it original. Maybe I need a smaller challenge, like a once a week photo challenge, so I have more time to think of the details.

I have still been taking pictures, but I think I have hit the stage I saw on a graph about “how I feel about my photography” that simply says, “I suck” I don’t know if it is my aging but already poor eye sight or what, but none of my pictures are coming out very sharp. Also, the kids are refusing to let me take pictures of them any more. I need to find more things to take pictures of.

In other news, I just published a new pattern on Ravelry that also got picked up for KnitPicks IDP. The patterns name is the Anpiel Shawl. The test knitters really seemed to enjoy it, and that really made me happy.

I am working on some other knitting. I have four “baby” sweaters to knit. Only one of them is for a baby not already here, though. To say I am behind on my baby knitting is an understatement. I also have a hat to knit for my Uncle Rudy. Since hats are quick, I am hoping to get that done this week while the kids are doing school. I also have weaving to do, and sweatshirts that need cut up before I can complete that. As usual, I am having a hard time prioritizing, I want to do it all!! I told Sean the other day when I had a marvelous idea for someone into pottery, that as brilliant as the idea was, I could not, would not should not start another hobby. I’d have to give up sleep altogether, and I really like to sleep. If anyone knows of a potter who would like to make a ton of money selling things to knitters, though, I have a brilliant, genius idea.

Thought I would update the blog while the kids were getting woke up, before we get school started. I am going out to walk while they do their computer work, because I have decided that it is finally time to get this weight off that I have regained. Tomorrow will be weigh in day, and I think the first week went well. I managed to not drink coca-cola at all last week. I am eating better, and walking, so I’m excited that maybe this time, I will be able to stick with it. You all be praying for me!
