I got nuttin'...

except for maybe a whole lot of wishful thinking.  

September and upcoming October have been and are going to be some fairly hectic months around these parts.  Although my normal M.O. is to go at warp speed at multiple activities on a daily basis, there is a little bit more of a frenetic feel to my life of late.  

My darlin' is gone for several days on a much deserved fishing trip to Canada with his cronies and I have a longer than normal list of things to get done while he's gone.  Not going to happen.  

September has been filled with project planning and getting geared up for the year with my Service League responsibilities.  October is go month and will be crazy busy all the way around.  Loads of things that excite me and make me happy.  This weekend I will have the pleasure of making breakfast (cherry blintzes) for a good friend and then we are heading to Louisville to stalk check out an art show downtown where my recent favorite silversmith will be showing/selling his jewelry.   Wes told me to be sure to pick out something he would pick for me.  That's easy, as we both are drawn to the same pieces whenever we look at jewelry.  Yay me!! jewelry!

Next weekend, my favorite older sister is coming to stay with us for a long weekend.  Boy-howdy, do I ever have the weekend chok-a-block stuffed full of things for us to do.  Not the least of which is a most awesome turn of events...she asked me to teach her how to knit wire bracelets!

The next weekend does not have any outside the house activities planned just yet.  After that comes a long weekend with my oldest son, with a tentatively planned day trip to Chicago.  Then we end the month with my in-laws' annual Weenie Roast/Bonfire.   Add the weekday stuff that has to be done, plus some other additional weekday tasks and at this rate, I am going to be ready for the holiday season just to "slow" down some!

What does all this mean?  My precious knitting, spinning, sewing time is taking a hit.  Boo hiss.  However, I did think of something, that I need to invent that would solve all the crafty crunch time.  

Enter the Knitting Crock Pot!  Wouldn't it be wonderful (just sometimes, since the process of doing is a lot of the draw to the craft) if you could just throw everything in your knitting bag, close it up, and 6 to 8 hours later open it to find the most wonderful of things all done?

I think mine is broken :(

P.S.  Don't forget to enter the giveaway...



  1. Sounds like you really will be busy! Have a great time with your sister and do some shopping!

  2. Wow, you're going to be very busy. I suggest putting the cats to work on the knitting.

    Work is putting a big hit on my knitting time, don't feel bad.

  3. You do sound so busy! I hope you get some relaxing craft time soon:)

  4. I'm jealous of all your fun stuff! No fear, there's always travel time for knitting. Especially if you're making small puffs! :) C'mon... join the swap and then decide. If you don't want to make a blanket, you could make a trivet. Or some cat toys. Or earrings (?) Maybe not earrings... But still!

  5. Even the fun stuff takes energy, so remember to give yourself a tiny break now and then. At least you have that happy bag full of yarny stuff to play with when you do get a minute to relax :-)

  6. Ha ha!! A knitting crockpot!! If you still have your receipt, you might wanna take yours back :-)

  7. Too funny! If you figure out how to fix yours, let me know!

  8. oooooh, I wish I had a working knitting crock pot too.

  9. Oh man.....I want one of those crock pots too.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!!

  10. I would totally buy a knitting crockpot, especially for all those hand knitted socks that I get so jealous of seeing but too lazy to knit. Sounds like a crazy fun month ahead!

  11. Oh my gosh - I totally need one of those! You could make a fortune if you ever did invent a knitting crock pot! Talk about clever (and funny!)
