I went to church, helped with the kids’ music, sang in the choir, worked for a few hours, and then took some time off. I sorted through all my purses, tried every lipstick and made sure I had a lipstick and a pen in each purse, and am now thinking about whether to frog the hat I am currently making. I have made several small errors by now, and have knitted about two inches. If it gets much further I won’t be able to do it.

But I’m also thinking — now that school has started, now that I’m down to fewer than 60 work hours per week, now that I am recommitting to a sensible schedule, what will I make?

Will I do the Fall 2014 SWAP to go with my Spring 2014 SWAP? Will I get one of those quilts finished? Or will I make Christmas presents?
