I've been spending an inordinate amount of time playing the newest Zelda game, Breath of the Wild. That is my excuse for my current lack of focus. I haven't been playing all day long of course but so much of it that I've done little else worth documenting. It has been quite fun having the entire family playing the same game even if it has taken the place of any other activities.
During my downtime I've been baking more bread, working on the yard, and catching up on television shows. If it wasn't for that last thing I would have nothing to show you at all, but whenever my hands are free, I'm still knotting away on this enormous piece. It's still growing rather slowly since each round is just so long, but it's giving me something at least slightly interesting to do.

I'm not sure what my issue is here, but clearly I'm off kilter somehow. I'm sure I can find several things to blame, but right now I'm just hoping that this isn't the start of a downward memory spiral. So here's to paying a little more attention to the date.

Over the weekend I pulled my bread machine out of retirement, so I've been making bread. Nothing too interesting, just sourdough because it's my favorite. I also got some knotting time in yesterday. I think that I'm going to do several rounds of these points. I hadn't worked any of them in this piece and I'm not bored of them yet.
I'm also contemplating writing up more of my patterns to list in my etsy shop soon. Sales have been glacial and my creativity has been seriously lacking lately. I am always hesitant to list patterns as it can cannibalize my own work, but I've got to do something to make a little money. So if there are any designs that you've been hankering for, please do let me know.

There are no plans for the week ahead. I'd love to get some yard work in, but I don't think that the weather is going to cooperate with that. Instead I will likely fall back on reading and knotting. I know, exciting as always.
