I feel like I’ve been in a bit of a knitting frenzy lately. For two reasons, mainly: My kids – who normally engage in the occasional sibling squabble, at a very manageable level – have been quite a bit more intensely cranky lately, and I’ve been using knitting as my life preserver. And secondly, I’ve got Sophia’s Owlet about three quarters of the way finished…no, really, even more then that; it’s all complete but for the last bit of the owls, and then the decrease along the yoke, and the bind-off. But I’ve run out of yarn, and it positively eats at me to have an unfinished project. I’m not sure when the next bit of Annie’s wool will be spun so I can finish it. I might be looking at months! (Insert sob.)
So, in the interim, I’ve made a pair of owl mittens for Sophia, I knitted Lily a cardigan out of Sundance’s wool (and oh was that a pleasure! So soft!! So wonderful!! I will never part with this boy; he’s proven his worth in wool alone). And I made a stranded Norwegian star hat for Grace. I just finished the hat this afternoon. Now I’m casting about for the next project. What will it be? What pattern out there looks irresistible??
Can I make it potentially months before I get to finish that damn Owlet pattern???
Internal tears and tears and tears…
I’m joining Ginny in her yarn-along, and I’m here to tell you that I am not reading at all, I’m knitting, like a crazed crazy woman, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
