I’ve been catching myself sitting inside my head staring out into space. I had been doing this alot. Until the day I caught myself and mentioned something to husbeast. I don’t think he thinks much that I do is weird so I’m not sure he noticed me sitting on the couch, kids in bed, hands idle….
I explained: Brown needs to be finished soon but I passed any joy of working on it. The yarn has so many knots in it, I was just unhappy with it. I need to finish it this week though. Still I was blocked because I really wanted to knit socks or spin.
His answer: So knit something else.
I said: But I really need to finish Brown.
He said matter of factly: So just finish brown.
I sat there in space for a few more minutes and then I almost finished brown. All thats left is the neck and weaving in the multitude of ends from the knotty yarn (acrylic doesn’t spit splice).
I’ve been doing an inch on the neck a day. At this rate, I won’t meet my deadline. I’m going to do my best to finish her up today. Steam block and have her out tomorrow.
Tonight is roller skating with the girl scouts. I think they’re going to try and get me out skating. If I manage to keep my butt planted in a corner, I’ll be knitting.
