What I'm Doing...

I don't know if it's the Post-Idol blahs, but I seem to be having a hard time thinking up blog posts this week.
Of course, part of the problem is that I'm doing this:
 Or at least, I'm supposed to be doing this... proofing Mourning Shift for eBook release. Happily, there is very little actual proofing needed because the files are remarkably error-free, thanks to Ryan Boettger and his wonderful team of students. But with or without errors, I wrote the book, which means that it's difficult for me to read it. I'll be glad when I finish (though I will have two more books to proof very soon).
 When I'm not proofing, I am still weaving. I'm using up some Crystal Palace Panda Cotton and Panda Wool (bamboo blends). It's wonderful yarn, but maybe not perfect for weaving because it's fairly elastic.
 When I'm not weaving, I'm inspecting our trees for Cedar Apple Rust. Looks like they could slither down the branches and attack us in our sleep, don't they?
 When I'm not inspecting trees, I'm cleaning closets. I found these (two spindles, seven baggies of fiber and about 20 balls of novelty yarn) stashed in an upper corner of the bedroom closet. I'm not kidding when I say that there is yarn in every room of my house. And also not kidding when I say that I haven't done a deep-drawer/closet cleaning in a very long time. In my bedstand drawer, I found a pair of glasses with single-vision lenses. I've had bi-focals since, oh say, '98 or so...
 And when I'm not cleaning, I'm making progress on the Robot Quilt.
 And when I'm not making progress on the Robot Quilt, I'm oohing and aahing over just how cute this thing is.
 And when I'm not oohing and aahing, and when I'm in the car, I'm actually knitting a leftover-yarn sock.
And when I'm not doing any of the above, I'm procrastinating... and writing blog posts.

I love the colors in your sock! Might have to be a copycat... OK?

I would love to see your copycat sock! Please send a pic when you finish (or even before... ho ho)
