I know that, technically, there are 17 or 18 days left of summer (for those of us north of the equator); but, I think that I am not alone in thinking that fall pretty much starts afterLabor Day (next Monday, the 7th). For me, a deadline serves as a strong motivating force to get things done. I do not quake about deadlines, I welcome them (I hope for them, actually). So with a minute past midnight, the 8th (day after Labor Day) as my deadline, I have a couple of days to finish a couple of things. Because, quite frankly, I am way more excited about my fall projects than I am about my summer ones that are sort of languishing.
I have been working on a vest all summer, I already know it's not getting done by Monday, so the vest will be my carry over project to the next season (I only work on it during my lunch hour at work, so it's slow going, but I know it'll get done). It's the one fall project that I am not particularly excited about.
I have had a red silk scarf on my Kromski rigid heddle loom since last October. The loom got buried underneath some fabric and batting at some point and it was out of my sight, so it went out of my mind. I am finishing this scarf if I finish nothing else this weekend.
Actually, I am going to spin this roving for Bertha, even if I finish nothing else this weekend. Sorry, Bertha, when I said I would post this Friday, I really meant that I would post it to you on Tuesday.
I have two quilts that I would like to finish up, one needs binding and the other needs quilting and binding.
Finish two quilts in a weekend? Totally doable.
I have been working on a shawl all summer that needs to be finished, because I am sick of working on it. I don't really like knitting shawls in laceweight yarn, so I am not really sure why I started this. It's almost done...32 rows, that's nothing.
Of course, I am going to try to finish this stuff while taking the boys to the beach or some other such nonsense (that is what one does over Labor Day weekend, apparently, that and grill things), and generally having long holiday weekend family fun. And when I am done with all of that, I am going to read some books.
Yes. I know.
For those in the US, Happy Labor Day! May your laboring be fruitful.
And you still have time to enter the contest (it's not really a contest, but, there you are)/givewaway if you haven't already done so.
