The proof.

Yessir, the proof that I actually seem to accomplish more if I don’t feel I have deadlines looming over me.

Maybe I shouldn’t be striving to become a novelist someday…

Either way, though, I’ve accomplished a fair bit over this past week on various projects, namely the feather and fan wrap (which still needs a name)…

…and the Arvika shawl.

Kitten‘s right, it does sort of look like a watermelon without the rind right now.

I’m going to need circulars to continue Arvika, which unfortunately, I just don’t have at the moment. Hopefully I’ll be able to find a little bit of extra money in my budget to buy a set. I hope this shawl isn’t late. I already wasted too long on it, trying to work with patterns that just didn’t work even before I got to them.

But either way, I’m happy that progress has been made. Hopefully there’ll be more to come.

(That is, of course, assuming I don’t get side-tracked by the massive amount of books I just brought home today from the library’s annual book sale! Bibliogeek rides again!)

  1. My #1 worry about becoming a novelist: what if I actually get this thing published, and then everyone expects me to write another one? Do I have another one in me? Ack! :)

    The shawls both look fantastic!

  2. Yes, the shawls look great. I got a ton of books at the sale, too — mainly Sweet Valley High, because I am just that awesome.
