Good thing knitting is so relaxing, because this election has me stressed right out. Monday evening, Anna and I watched the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The whole thing gave me so much anxiety that I drank almost a whole bottle of wine all to myself. I’m not proud of that.
Does anyone else feel like they’re in Crazy Town this presidential election?
But this isn’t a place for politics. This is a place for knitting. And I was so thankful to have my knitting to turn to (and my wine…) when I started getting anxious. Knit, purl, knit, purl, it’s all going to be ok.
I’m making good progress on my Comfy Ribbed Raglan. Hopefully the temperatures will drop below 90 one of these days so I can actually wear it! Even though it’s a really simple knit, I’ll probably post a pattern for it when I’m done just in case anyone else might be interested in making one themselves.
Reading wise, I haven’t had much time to get ahead with my book, but I have been reading a few choice essays while at work and in spare moments. This one about voluntary simplicity was really inspiring to me. I’ve also been reading up on refinishing hardwood floors, because that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend. Yippee…
I finally got around to snapping a nice picture of my finished Alana Tank. I love how it came out! Now I just have to get Anna to take a picture of it on me. (I tried to take one myself with the camera timer and it came out H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E.) Here it is on my floor, though!
