Yesterday I missed a deadline—I was supposed to deliver a pair of socks and instructions for an upcoming book. Honestly, I can’t remember missing a knitting deadline before (but I tend to forget a lot these days). In my defense, I thought the deadline was April 15, not April 12. But still, I’m late. The problem is that I’ve had a few distractions. In addition to my spinning class (which has homework), I started the Springbok Knit Knacks knitting puzzle and opened up Stieg Larsson’s thriller The Girl Who Played with Fire. Needless to say, I spent more time this week spinning, puzzling, and reading than knitting. Last night I finished both the puzzle and book. I’ll finish the socks tonight. I promise.
