A Quick WIP and Some Music to Set the Mood
Good morning, lovelies! Day 2 and a blog post. Maybe I’m coming out of my writing slump? I do have a bit of writing to do today for work. I’ve hit a wall so I’m trying to get some creative juices flowing.
Twice in the past year I’ve been lucky enough to do a test knit for Amanda of Birch and Lily. This time around I’m working on a shawl – something I don’t knit many of although I do love wrapping up in a squishy wool shawl on our chilly New England evenings. As a matter of fact, there is a chilly breeze coming through my window right now and I’m about to go grab one to wrap up in while I work.
I’m keeping it close by so I can pick it up whenever my actual writing turns to watching training videos. All the details are under wraps but the pattern will be released later this month. And I promise you will love it!
I’ve never been a big fan of Halloween. Of ghosts and goblins and ghouls, yes. Of silly blow up lawn decorations and plastic bones thrown about the grass? No, thanks.
I did go through all of that when my own children were small but we’ve gotten older and more jaded as the teen years have hit. Looking through the decorations at Home Goods, my daughter said, “You know, I really like harvest decorations more than Halloween.” That’s my girl.
But I do enjoy some good medieval, Celtic, Norse music and Halloween always strikes me as a as good a time as any for listening to it. To be honest, I can’t think of a time when I wouldn’t listen to it.
