Distractions Abound

There are distractions that are meant to confuse and divert attention and then there are distractions that are meant to entertain.

Desperately Looking to be Entertained!

With all the craziness going on in the U.S. added with the distress of getting over a kidney stone, I have been bouncing back and forth between any distractions I can find.
I’ve picked up and/or started three different knitting projects:
This is the Knit-A-Long I’m doing for a pair of socks with an afterthought heel.  I’m grateful to have deadlines to force me to keep up.  Right now I’m a bit ahead of schedule.
Afterthought Heel Sock

This is a garter/biased-knit scarf done in some handspun I started a while ago when I was intensely bored.  It’s beautiful yarn and the mindlessness of the garter stitch is just enough to keep me distracted.

Handspun Garter Scarf

This is a keyhole scarf in a bulky handspun/hand-dyed yarn done by a local fiber artist who I admire a lot.  I’m not so sure how this will turn out, but it will definitely look better once it’s finished.

I sat down and tried finishing my current spinning project…I’m almost done with the Shetland/Mohair singles.

I’m also distracting myself (and hopefully blog readers with photos of Finn.

Finn Angry

Unfortunately, Finn is angry with me right now…we’re training him to stay off the dining room table and he was just physically removed.
And as a last-ditch effort, I’m even photographing my lattes.  Here’s my latest masterpiece.

So, if you have anything you can entertain or distract me with, feel free to chime right in!
