Even if it’s just 8 or 14 rows a day. Chipping away will result in a finished object. That’s the goal. Baby Blanket by Oct 25th, ready to gift. So why is it that this is the LAST thing I want to knit!!!
10 stripes down, 11 more to go.
And when you have leftovers from three punkin head hats and you think why not combine them to make a stripey hat.
Only, you don’t have enough of the orange for the size you decided to knit.
So you end up with 1 stripe with only 1 row at the top there.
Now, will any of these issues make or break the knit items? No, the blanket will get done, because I am committed to finishing it. The hat is going to be warm no matter how it’s striped.
Now, the big things.
Why is it that no matter how many hat patterns I looked at, none of them agreed on how deep to knit the hat before the decreases!!! I got 5.5″, 6.25″, 7.5″, all for a 16″ circumference hat. Working on limited yarn I knit it to 6″. It will fit someone.
I popped my pinkie knuckle on a door handle 3 weeks ago. 1 week later I popped it again. Now I am noticing the pain has not completely gone and even shooting pains are starting to radiate from the knuckle. I even think there is a faint knot on the knuckle. It’s my tensioning finger!!!! The more knitting I do, the more it is irritated. So, I guess it’s time to go to the Dr. I have too many things to get knit!!!!
I will be knitting tomorrow while I wait for a delivery. A stationary bicycle that my husband choose from a list of items he could receive for his 25th work anniversary. Oh joy! An exercise equipment item. Is he trying to tell me something? OK, it was a choice between a power tool he didn’t need, a treadmill I would not be able to use, or the bike. At least with the bike I will try to learn to knit while riding. Since I don’t have to steer, it’s doable, right? Well, check back on Wednesday to see how successful I was!
