Missed knitting opportunity
I'm like that sometimes. I'm like that a lot lately it seems. I like to knit. I like to knit baby things (because they are small so I can finish them but people are actually impressed when you make a sweater in miniature, particularly people who don't knit like the person who's having this baby) but it just really didn't pop into my mind that here is a perfect opportunity until I am sitting at the shower.
And here's where the crazy kicks in: I start to ponder how long it might actually take to make a baby something because maybe there's still time...
At the rate I knit, there is not still time. That ship sailed months ago. And then I think about this sweater that I have knit already. All the pieces are done but I have to sew it all together. I hate that part. My knitting looks so nice until I have to put the the pieces together. And I don't think it's the right color. And then there's the blanket that I've knit, just for the heck of it. I think it needs an i-cord edge to be finished...but I'm not sure it's right either.
So I've decided nothing. But in the wide open spaces of my house which I plan to leave only to get food this weekend, all sorts of inspiration might pop up.
And because there's at least one person watching my progress...yes, I did walk a mile and a bit on the (stupid stinking) treadmill last night. I don't even know what to call 4 nights in a row.
