Missing in action

So, yes it seems I have been missing in action for almost a month. I have been severely lacking in knitting motivation lately. I haven't even been checking in on my bloglines feeds.

So tonight at LIC SnB, Chia tells me that Secret Pal 5 has been closed??? Closed! But I just checked the blog on May 30th and it hadn't been updated since like February! So tonight I fired up the computer for what seems like the first time in weeks and go to the site. No updates. So I get the great idea to check the comments - UGH!!! She posted the new SP5 site in the comments!!! So I miss out again. Seems I wasn't the only one to miss out though - there were a couple of other knitters that didn't notice the post in the comments about the new site either. Does anyone out there know of any other knitter exchange lists out there? Or is SP5 the only one?

I guess I should be thanking my lucky (or unlucky) stars that I did miss the sign up for SP5. I have been very busy at work trying to get my line together for Spring 2006. Then my acid reflux started to act up again (stress anyone???) and I missed 3 days of work putting me behind by about a week. My Spring line was supposed to be in by Monday - I only have 20 styles done! I'm missing about 30-40 styles, and that's just for August market! I'm going to need to do at least another 80-100 styles to fill up September - November market. I feel like I am perpetually behind in my new job. Just when I think I've caught up - BAM! something else comes along and messes me all up. In two weeks, I'm supposed to be starting my collection for Fall 06. Ugh! I don't even want to think about it!

Hopefully check back in tomorrow and I should have some knitting related work up. Lucky is done, but not sewn together. My fairisle is looking pretty good and should have the front done very shortly. I am itching to start on the Hot Lava Cardigan and need to get the fairisle done ASAP! Still haven't received my yarn from England that I ordered on the 31st of March for my boyfriend's sweater - even though my card was charged! This is getting ridiculous..........

Welcome back! What a stressful time. I hope your knitting projects have helped you to keep your cool. :) Can't wait to see another finished Lucky and to see how your fair isle is coming along.
