On Craftiness and Speed

Let’s talk about c cubed. I took it with me to a meeting Tuesday night, but no stitching was done, because, unlike most meetings, this one was productive. Then that night we began the 36 hour festival of pukiness, and so not much was done on the blanket. And tonight, I have a meeting and not much will be done on the blanket.

Or will it be? I’ve put almost a full ball of yarn into the thing, plus some scraps balls of leftovers. I’ve done more than 17 rows of 158 stitches. If I were a mason, working on Arizona luxury real estate and I laid well over 2,686 bricks in my spare time would I think it wasn’t enough, and be ashamed because I didn’t get the whole house built? No. I’d be saying, no, SHOUTING–hey ya’ll looka here! I made this in my free time. I’d be so proud of that partial wall. I’d expect you all to clap and stuff!

So, tomorrow, it’s time for the Online Craft Club again (you didn’t forget craft club, did you?), and I am going to show that blanket again. And I am going to be loud and proud that between working, and cleaning and parenting and going to meetings, I laid close to 3,000 bricks this week.
