November 15 - Plugging Along

Patty reminds me there are 15 days left of NaBlo.  I am trying to summon my inner blogging spirit to help me through. I am losing steam. Have I blogged every day? I wonder. Check to make sure. See I have and know I must go on! I can do this (can't I?)! 


I heard a movie is coming out next year based on A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle, and I thought reading the book might be a good idea. Then I heard there was a version in graphic novel form, so I bought it just for the fun of it. My enjoyment of manga/graphic form books came about a couple of years ago. A graphic AWiT will be a kick! 

Perhaps the main reason I wonder if I can make it though this blogging challenge is my enjoyment of Brickyard and my TTL shawl has waned. I've made errors on both and lost momentum trying to get back on track. It's the process, but my thoughts (due to Kym and Vicki's most excellent adventure) have been turned to my AC project and I've another in the wings that I'm excited about, too. 

I truly feel unraveled, but tomorrow is another day and we'll see where that takes me. Check out Kat's blog for more Unraveled feelings. 


Seems like you've got a wonderful diversion from those pesky yarn problems. Would love to see your AC project!

I'm feeling exactly the same way about NaBloPoMo. This is about the time where I begin to wonder not only can I do this, but also why I want to do this! I completely agree with Patty and would love to see your AC project(s) while Brickyard and TTL rest on the sidelines. I'm also wondering if reading the graphic AWiT might help calm my unraveled feelings. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hang in there with your sweater, but give it a little rest if you must. I am almost finished with the body, perhaps tonight, so there is light at the end of the tunnel.

My hat is off to you girls for doing NaBloPoMo..I am sure I wouldn't have been able to keep up..ha


A Wrinkle in Time is one of those cornerstone books of my childhood. Everything I've heard about the film leaves me hopeful for an adaptation true to the spirit of the novel, but I've been burnt before.

Good luck getting through your malaise with the blogging and your frustration with the knitting.

A Wrinkle in Time was my stepson’s favorite book—it seems to be a tale that appeals to all ages! It is definitely a classic. Brickyard is a lot of stitches but it looks like it will be worth the effort—best wishes for continued success!

You Brickyard is lush. It will look beautiful on you.

Your Brickyard is just lovely, Margene! That color! I am in a very slow knitting mode myself. Partly due to my Alabama Chanin distraction, and partly due to so many other things to do. Ebb and flow. . . ebb and flow. . .

I, too, tire of the NaBloPoMo thing. But we're half-way through now -- I think it will be easier from here on out. (Or - at least - that's what I'm telling myself.)

I loved A Wrinkle in Time. It was one of my favorite childhood books, and I re-read it every now and again. (I can't wait to see the movie next year.) XO

You know, I never read A Wrinkle In Time but I guess the TIME is NOW if I'm going to do it! I hear you on the drag of NaBloPoMo - it's more time consuming to read blogs now, too, since everyone is blogging every day and I feel the push to comment, but still, I'm so grateful for this community that I am IN it for the WIN! I bet you are, too.

NaBloPoMo can feel a bit like a slog sometimes, but I'm glad you're giving it a go. I hope you do something fun today! xo

I'm so glad you're slogging along with the rest of us! Seeing a post from you in my feed always brightens my day - I hope you found a few things to brighten yours too!

I don't know how you blog every day, but my hat is off to you. Just post us a picture, and you're done! Your Brickyard is beautiful, and now that you are down to the mindless part of the pattern, I would think it would be good knitting for a podcast, an audio book, or a movie. No? Just be patient, your knitting mojo will come back. I'd love to see your AC project.

You're the boss of it all, Margene!! I'm happy that you're blogging, and hope you will continue with NaBloPoMo (and then maybe, just maybe, once or twice a week or so after that?). Put that knitting away and bring out the sewing -- I'd love to see your progress, and hear about what's in the wings! xoxo

I am with you on slogging through the remainder of this month! WE CAN DO IT!

Keep going, you're over 1/2 way there!

Your Brickyard is gorgeous! My enthusiasm for my Exploration Station shawl waned as I waded through the Brioche section for weeks. I ripped , re-ripped, tinked endless stitches repeatedly. It went into time out... hauled back out... and I am finally out of Brioche hell. Hallelujah! You'll get there too.

Kudos on the daily blogging. Yes you can do it!

AWIT was my eldest's favorite book as a kid. She devoured all of Madeleine L'Engle's books..
