It was a tough weekend and to be honest, yesterday and today have been difficult. Today I've been trying to pull myself up by my bootstraps, but it's not quite working. It's bad enough that even knitting isn't making it better. I sat for fifteen minutes and tried working on the Irish Hiking Scarf, but gave up because it wasn't doing any good.

I did make some progress on my projects, though...

The sweater vest is done and I'm getting ready to wash and block it. I'm hoping that it will fit over his head. This morning I woke up and looked at my sweet boy and the first thing I thought was, "I think his head grew overnight!" I'll let you know if it works.

The Irish Hiking Scarf is coming along well, though I'm not getting in my two repeats each and every day. I did add about 7 inches to it over the weekend.

Hopeful is now 4" in on that second end panel. 16" left and it'll be done. I think that if I could dedicate two nights to it, I'd have it finished and blocking.

The fingerless mittens are done except for the seaming. I'm waiting on that until Thursday. Mom and I will be going back to the LYS to get a little instruction from the teacher. We'll be going in early so that we could look around and some of the new stock. I'm also hoping that we could stay a little late since Bryan is meeting us there to take Owen home. I love knitting at my LYS.

The girls' tank tops haven't even been started yet. I'm wanting to get some projects out of the way before I get going on these.

The socks! I'm loving the sock. I lost my tally/notes paper for a little while, but it is back now and ready to be written on. The sock is happy to be back in game.

I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow... and if I did it right, you'll see pictures and a pattern of the sweater vest.

I'm sorry things are icky for you right now! I know how hard it can be to get that "get up and go" you need when things are crap.

Hang in there! Can't wait to see pics.
