I'm back from vacation in Utah. I didn't get very many photos since I was wrangling a baby (she was a very good traveler, I must add). Originally, I planned on taking another week off from work when I got home, but soon realized that I was antsy to work. So I did. And I had an update on Wednesday, though not much is left in the shop from it.
While I was gone, I finished my Travelling Woman shawl, started a baby blanket (which I just finished a couple of days ago), and bought some new knitting needles. Here's proof that I've been knitttting:Wool Leaves baby blanket and weave in the ends, but I'm totally happy-dancing over the fact that I started and completed two knitting projects within a month.
Pause. I better knock on wood before typing the next bit.
Suddenly, things feel "in order." I know I've complained and moaned about a colicky cranky baby, juggling household duties, and my business, but somehow things have straightened out recently. I don't know if it's because Ingrid has turned a corner and is now the world's HAPPIEST baby, or if it's because my husband suddenly took on more householdy chores, or possibly the fact that I've finally given my brain something paradoxically challenging and relaxing to focus on, but I feel magically better.
Now, all I have to do is light a fire underneath my business expansion plans and get things rolling. Realistically, I'm aiming for the revamp to be complete by the end of September or early October.
