I Burnt Out!!

Yesterday (Wednesday) morning I KNEW I was reaching burn out stages with the cardigan..I knew hitting it hard like I was that burnout was going to happen sooner or later...And it looked like sooner...I didnt want to knit it yesterday...I was sick of it... The weather has gotten hot again... I was expecting this sort of weather throughout the whole of the knitting olympics but it didnt happen until yesterday.

I forgot to say that also on Valentines Day..If anyone was listening in Launceston to the local radio station 7LA they would have heard that my darling Husband rang up and dedicated our song to me!! aaaaaaaaaw sweeeeet!!!!

Has anyone else been having bloody problems with their blogger blog?!!? I mean my last post was written a couple of days ago..And it has only shown up today. It kept telling me to "wait 10 minutes and then reload blog"....They have a STRANGE idea of 10minutes since 24hrs later it was still telling me that!!!

Harley started school again today! It was good to get her back. I enjoyed the peace. Adam and I also joined a bowling league and the first bowling event was 9am this morning!! YIKES..So we took Harley's first day photo..dropped her off at school..and heading down to bowling (after double checking with her teacher that she knew Harley was epileptic and knew all that came with it). I sucked BIG TIME today in bowling (really poor score). Thats all I am saying about that!

This evening in the slightly cooled afternoon..We did some gardening. We need to do it so we did a little. Will get some more done tomorrow. Hoping the cooler weather will come back so we can get more then a little done (didnt help that I had to also supervise Rachelle and her little boyfriend).

Oh...I forgot to say..Just because I was sick of the cardigan..Didnt mean I didnt get it finished just as the clock ticked over to Midnight last night..So it took me 5 days....

Today I have done a little beanie I plan on selling (out of some LOVELY Cleckheaton Tapestry....)...I will get a piccie of that soon for you all.

And here is a piccie of Large Project 7 or 10 (I know not a good piccie) will post a better one of this one..Its that gorgeous purply coloured Crushed Velvet jumper I have been working on for ages! And will also get a piccie of Large Project 8 of 10 really soon....Harleys School Cardigan is Large Project 9 of 10..Just ONE to go!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care all! Happy Knitting!!

    I wish I would have known how to knit when my children were small. I love the sweaters you made for yours.

    Well done, you! The cardy looks gorgeous and I hope Harley brags to all the kids in school that her mum made it in just 5 days! Definite Olympic material : )

    Friends just got back from Tassie and said that it wasn't over 21 all the time they were there - I was desperately jealous.

    Well done on a massive effort, 5 days, you go girlfriend.

    Good on you for bowling, it is a lot of fun.

    You definately deserve the gold medal for Harley's cardi.

    Is the beanie the silver and an as yet to be named project the bronze medal?

    The weather has been a bit hot but the cool change is just starting to come through.

    gorgeouse knitting Katt - don't worry, you'll soon have your knitting groove back, and we will still love you even if you dont

    PS Its just as well, with 2 facts about Katt being that you hate the heat and hate being sunburnt, that you live in Tassie and not in Cairns! (You are free to visit me anytime, but I'm thinking that may not eventuate...!)
