That moment in The Neverending Story when the Empress can’t take it anymore: Her world is being destroyed by the Nothing and she has become so powerless. Or was she crying because she had to lay her last ounce of hope on a little skinny boy and a huge, flying, comical dog? Maybe this is when she finds out the horse went down in the quicksand. Oh well, it’s the Nothing’s fault, regardless.
It’s sort of like my knitting and crochet. I think I got myself too spoiled, brandishing this and that FO on my blog. I’ve got NOTHING! Partly because of work, partly because I have too many responsibilities at home, somewhat because I’m in a moment when I’m working on afghans which take forever, and so on. I did manage to finish a sock and start the other half of the pair. I have indeed finished a couple of pairs of socks (a week ago) but I’ve decided I’d rather photograph a bunch of pairs of finished socks all at once because it’s occurred to me that if it takes an hour to photograph one pair of socks it probably takes the same to photograph like, I don’t know, five or six pairs of socks. I think it would be cool to finish pair number six in June, maybe have twelve finished for the year by December.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. I’m going to enjoy it and make some progress on my projects. You know, perhaps knit and crochet the NOTHING away.
