I've been very scattered and unfocused with the whole creative thing lately: essay deadlines, lunar eclipses and periods combined (and 2 day long hangovers - I'm getting old) do not make me very focused or creative. But that has passed and seems to be improving a little. There may even be a FO in sight! ( I have about 5 rows of I-cord to knit, 10 sts to graft and 4 ends to weave in. I think I can manage that.
