I looked in the mirror this morning and had to show you this because it made me laugh. My hair usually looks like this - not always in a bun, but with knitting needles sticking out of it.
Have you ever had a thought or idea in your head that won't leave you alone until you set it free? It runs around, mucking things up and being a general LOUD presence until you are able to let it out and be what it needs to be?
I've come to think of these thoughts and ideas - the ones that must be heard - as Brain Goblins. Since goblins tend to do the same (running a muck and making a mess of things), it seems fitting.
I've had such a goblin in my head for the last few weeks and Thursday afternoon I cast on to let it out.
I'm terribly excited about this idea if it works out. I wanted something with twisting and winding cables, and when I finished the Emilies in white the goblin really came into view. (It was the beauty of the cables in white yarn that did it.) Lots of charting and calculating and figuring and I think I'm finally getting there.
What is it? Well I guess you'll just have to come back to find out! :)
Jack came down with a cold yesterday, and I think I might feel it coming on as well. Not sure if it's that or allergies. But it would explain the crazy burst of energy yesterday evening that led to my scrubbing every appliance and counter in my kitchen. I just hope if it is a cold it holds out until I get chores done today. And maybe some kind of baked goodie made...
How was your weekend?
