It's almost the end of June and I've not blogged once this month.  I have good intentions.  I open up a new browser window.  I log into Blogger.  I even start a New Post.  And it sits blank.  That has happened at least four times in the last three weeks.

I'm on the home stretch of my second baby blanket.  I'll post a picture of the finished object when it's off the needles.  I also started a new pair of socks, using Lions Brand sock yarn that I've had in my yarn basket for a while now.  After this baby blanket is finished, I'm going to really concentrate on working on socks.   With this second blanket, I'm not under a time crunch, so I will have time to appropriately block and dry the blanket.  I have noticed a few odd-sized stitches in my knitting, and I'm hoping that blocking will get rid of those odd spots.

I don't understand why I have random oddly-shapped stitches

I'm focusing more on my knitting because my stress level at work is out of control.  I am so tense and anxious during the day.  The 30-minute drive home does not even help me unwind.  I am out of my comfort zone and constantly question every single piece of work I produce.  

I want to be this relaxed and serene.
