View Full Version : Knitting grief

I say grief, cuz my knitting time is slowly coming to a close for a while. I will be doing some quilting for girl scouts pretty soon!!! AAAAAAAA.....AND I have 2 projects left to knit. Both can be shelved while I quilt...but I opened my MOUTH, and said...don't pay the money...I"LLLLLLLLLL do it...ugg.....

We are making a quilt for the leader. Each of the girls made a picture of themselves on a piece of muslin. A grandma will be piecing it together, and then I get to quilt it. I am SERIOUSLY thinking about tying the heck out of the thing, and then doing hand quilted embelishments on it....more in the interest of time. I am a purist, and so this is killing me to even consider it, but I think that I can let my perfectionism go, in the interest of time!!!

I am making a cowl neck poncho for my girlfriend, who is TALL and rather buxom..so it is taking a LOT longer than I was wishing.....I just knit and knit and knit and knit...I am in the 3rd skein of Homespun, and I have one to go. I am not terribly sure if I have enough!!!

Also, the NEVER ENDING SOCKS....geesh...I LOVE working at the pool 2 hours minimum each day....I get 10 hours a week to knit....notso during the school year. I have the toe left on the sock, but have gone from DPN's to 2 circulars, but didn't realize that the circ's needed to be LONG, so I got 2 12 inchers, so now I have 2 12 inch addi's. I'll finish the sock on one 12 inch go down to the DPNS (if necessary, which I am sure it will be) and then go like gangbusters to get the second sock done.

Oh, and just for "fun" I have a hat OTN that has tiny cables and bobbles...ACK...I can do about 4 bobbles before I have to say..ENOUGH...bt I think there is only one row of that left.

I just can't start ANYTHING new until the quilt is done....and even if the quilt gets here before I am finished with these projects, it isn't like I'll be able to start anything NEW...grrr.....Ok...rant over...

That's too bad...but maybe the quilt will be more fun than you anticipate.

Hopefully the quilt will turn out to be so beautiful that it will outshine the fact that you didn't get to knit for a while...:) Who knows--maybe you could knit on the toilet or something if your really hurtin for a knitting fix. :) LOL.
