• At Loose Ends

    It is just unbelievable how much the timeline of birthing a book resembles birthing a baby.  Everything is now ready for its arrival. The mailing materials are ready, the labels are written, space is cleared for the boxes of books.  And I feel the same way I did when I was past my due date with Deborah.  I have no more control over the situation now, than I did then.  It’s a waiting game.

    So, I’m at loose ends.  Since I can’t do anything about the book, I’m being productive elsewhere.  I’ve cleaned the kitchen, done laundry, re-checked the mailing supplies, went running, packed for next week, worked on the new classes I’ll be teaching at Stitches Midwest…yep, I’ve been busy.

    With all that accomplished, I decided to start a new knitting project.  I’m still working on Bolder Move, but am on the downhill slide with that one, and needed something more challenging, for my restless mood.  So, I went into my stash and pulled out yarn that I bought at a Stitches event – though I can’t remember which one.  I haven’t knit stripes for awhile, and this looks like a great garment to wear at work, or any time.

    Besides knitting, and getting the pre-ordered books autographed and mailed, I’m planning to read, run, and rest.  That will be a lot easier to do once the books are actually here and I get them mailed off to their new homes!
