Room For a Positive View

“I can change. I can live out my imagination instead of my memory. I can tie myself to my limitless potential instead of my limiting past.”
-- Stephen Covey

This is the poncho I am making for the Fair. I really think it looks nice with the fancy ribbon in it. But truthfully, I hate knitting with ribbon that has holes or railroads in it. The needle keeps getting stuck and I curse a lot. I've tried to change this negative view because the result is so lovely. I guess the lesson is that even though adding these little touches is a great big pain and takes twice as long, the result is worth the effort. Kind of like most things in life. :)

These last few weeks have been like that. There were times when I just wanted to give up and have a piety party for myself but I kept trying to stay positive and lo and behold after Mercury went back into place on Wednesday everything was suddenly okay. So on the next row of ribbon I will remember that the sweet Patons is only 10 rows ahead of me and everything will work out okay in the end.

Remember that Kool Aid I dyed a while ago? Well, I decided it would look great as a drop stitch scarf. It is actually quite long. I went over the three foot mark thinking it wouldn't be long enough. *ooops*. Well I was wrong...and it is more then adequate...but if you wrap it around and then loop it in itself it looks really cool. I hope at least someone at Fair thinks so.

Two goals down for the month already *yeah me*.

Also, DH and I revamped the blog today. I really like the new drop and drag aspect of Blogger.

Have a nice weekend.
