Motivation Wanted

I am lagging behind on my Camp Loopy Project #3. For some reason I have lost all of my motivation right here toward the end. I have to body and 1 sleeve done, 1 sleeve and the ribbed edging to do. My goal was to do the 2nd sleeve this week, but I haven't picked it up at all! I blame work. And the fact that I picked a project the requires a cable needed. I don't really enjoy cabeling. Love the look though and I think I am going to love this sweater. If I ever finish it.

So instead of finishing my Rocky Coast I cast on 2 new projects since we last spoke. I started and finished a project in a couple days. I did a Zuzu's Petals in Lorna's Laces Honor. Using one of Jimmy Beans Wool's limited edition colors Besties. I LOVE this yarn and I got a couple skeins back in February to make something for my Besties! Zuzu was the perfect pattern for this soft and yummy yarn. I've barely broken into the second skein and I've make a Measure in Love hat in this yarn too. I definatly will make another Zuzu for my other friend and perhaps another hat. These will be Christmas gifts. Sorry but I haven't blocked it yet so I don't have any pictures.

My second procrastaknitting project is a pair of socks for my oldest son. He picked out the Fluromania yarn himself and has been asking when I would make his socks. I am using the Family Socks pattern again in the Mens size. This kid has grown so much this summer. He is adult sized already but I don't think he's done growing yet. I have to wrap my head around making him man sized stuff now! I am loving working with this yarn. This is my first time using Regia and it seems like it is going to be very rugged. I kind of want to make myself some Fluromania socks in a different color, but I normally like softer socks. But it is going to be perfect for my kid/man. 

I blamed my procrastiknitting on work earlier. We have so much going on right now. In addition to just the normal stuff we have 2 extra curricular "voluntary" projects going on too. One of them finished up yesterday! Yay! And the 2nd is due next week. On top of that we had some higher ups visiting this week. My boss's boss's boss was in the office for several days this week. The first day I totally forgot and wore jeans. We are normally pretty casual but like to look spiffy when we have visitors. So I got to do some unexpected shopping Tuesday morning. I think I did pretty good for a break time run to Target!

Reading: I finished Fool Moon and The Quick this week. Both were good. I would like to go back and listen to them both a little more closely though. On our trip we started listening to Eldest in the car with my kids. I am finishing it up now.
