So I have this new yarn. I shouldn’t.
I have far to much to do already. I don’t need this yarn or the two projects that this yarn wants to be. I have too many freaking projects already. Its a very bad thing that I have this yarn and no you can’t take it off my hands. Back off Buckwheat.
I have the “real” project, the Hue Shift Afghan (link to KnitPicks for the pattern and a picture of what it should look liek when its done!) which I’m painstakingly knitting with a knit sheath. Its an effort to (A) get a birthday present done for my mom and (b) teach myself how to use a knit sheath. When I get that last square there done I’l be… a quarter of the way through all the squares. So yeah, no where near done.
Then I have this would-be-stole which I’ve been struggling with but have finally realized how to make the picture in my mind come out on my needles. I like this would-be-stole, I really do. I wish I could give her more time. I think she will be lovely.
But there is also this, a would-be cabled cardigan that is my guilty secrets. I don’t like this knit, I LOVE it. But its slow and I, umm, sort of, didn’t bother keeping notes so there probably won’t be a pattern. This is a just for me knit.
Those blue lines are for after-thought pockets, by the way.
So you can see why I don’t need any new yarn whispering at me to come and play. I’m not that strong.
