Distraction is defined by Google as:
- A thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else.
- A diversion or recreation.
This really could not be a better description for the last week. The last seven days have been all about being distracted. We all had to try to distract ourselves from the oppressive heat wave that dropped in, pitched a tent, and then completely overstayed it’s welcome. It brought it’s BFF, 15 extra degrees of humidity, and when it was all done we were averaging 44C/112F degrees for the whole week. It’s the kind of heat that makes you drip sweat when you’re standing still. It’s also the kind of heat that makes the idea of any knitting in your lap beyond unbearable.
Enter Vivid, and the distraction is complete.
Cast on last Sunday on a moment of weakness, I’ve finished the first three squares and started the fourth. It almost distracted me from the heat and certainly distracted me from my other knitting.
There really is no point in updating almost anything else because nothing else has really been knit. Just the squares.
Today however the heatwave seems to finally be over so I have managed to pull myself away from my squares long enough to start working on the collar of Mama Vertebrae. I am really hoping to finish it today. But I may end up being distracted again.
Just to point out – I really want to be knitting ALL THE THINGS!!!
Hope everyone else had a great week.
