I continue to commit each day, picking up the knitting and adding rows to the current WIPs. In my desire to get the Drops Vest done I have ignored the Cabled Comfort wrap, so the last few days I have given some attention to it. The vest is now in the collar section which is a ribbed pattern, which is BORING! The shawl is worked in St st with body st increases every 4th row which is BORING! Are you sensing a theme here?
Don’t get me wrong, the BORING knitting definitely has it’s place, but after a bit of BORING, the mind starts to wander, the fingers start to itch, and those temptations creep up on you. And you want to stray!!! And in a way, I have been straying, over to the dark side of sewing. But now the knitting lures are trying to catch me, and I need to stay strong and finish these 3 items before I even let myself get caught.
Fallen Cloud, pattern purchased last week.
Soft Shoulder, I have many yarn options for this.
Piedmont Hat, getting that itch to colorwork.
Snowfling, which I have pattern and yarn for.
Celtic Myths, a long time want.
So, will I resist? Will I cave? What will happen next? Who knows, my track record at sticking with a plan hasn’t worked well lately!
The new county we live in has their County 4H Fair this week. I entered some items into the Open Division. I started doing this the last few years in our former location. I am hoping to join up with one of the Home Extension groups to have an outlet for my creativity and meet some new faces. Tonight I plan to head out to the fair and see how my items “faired”. I am just a stitch!
