multi - tasking

These days I can't seem to do one thing at a time, for better or worse I'm always multitasking. Today for instance, I've worked on a knitting project an embroidery project and started reading a new book - all while I'm supposed to be studying for my first ARE (Architect Registration Exam). When you work all week in an office, it's very difficult to spend your weekends doing the same thing and never coming up for air. I think this blog proves that I come up for air quite often and maybe I need a bit more discipline.

Oh hum.

I will study, just as soon as I finish this one little thing . . . and then four hours go down the tube. Perhaps I will study tomorrow? Yes, I will clear the whole of my schedule tomorrow for studying. It will be great, but I really should get those mitts done before the weather gets too mild.

You see the situation.

The new novel I'm reading is The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro and I'm liking it a lot. I was a huge fan of The Historian and The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova and this novel seems to have a bit of that flavor. It's too soon to tell, but I'm excited about it.

I also checked a new knitting pattern book out from the library, that's where the pattern "Alexander Street Hat" comes from above. This one's called Sock Yarn Studio, compiled by Carol Sulcoski. It seems like a perfect companion for Crosby Hill Farm's sock weight yarn. I'm going to knit this hat using our Sea Foam and Fairy Queen sock yarn colorways. You can find our yarn here.


  1. Multi tasking always gets me into trouble: I start out doing the dishes, where I proceed to pick up a pair of shoes from the kitchen floor - take them to the bedroom closet - decide the closet should be picked through and old clothes sorted (after trying many on)- find a pair of old socks with holes in them - toss them in the hall closet rag bag - grab a rag and the pledge and start dusting the bedrooms - as I'm dusting the top of the dresser - I decide I should change the photographs and find myself sorting thru boxes of old pictures and frames - I've warmed up my tea for the umpteenth time and I'm sitting on my bedroom floor looking through 25 year old photo albums. Soon it's early afternoon and my house is messier than when I started the day, I have yet to finish one complete task - and I'm exhausted.

    1. Yes, but you got to look through all of those old photo albums - and soon you will have more time to spend on the house - though I wouldn't suggest cleaning. I would suggest drawing and painting, spinning and weaving - and shepherding.
