What to knit? What to knit?January 26, 2008 at 9:58 am | Posted in Knitting Update | 4 Comments
If you read my journal you know that my life is about to change – in a big way. In a ‘not-much-time-to-knit’ kind of way.
It is really making me think about what I’m knitting. I’ve started the Secret of the Stole 2, and I love it. However, I’m only about 70% done with clue 1 and clue 2 was just released. There are 9 clues total – the last being issued March 19. If we get CJ in late March – and I can catch up and stay caught up – I could have a stole finished before she gets here! Because after she gets here – I doubt I can knit lace for a few years. (pausing for a moment of freaking out!!)
I should work on my boxers – but I’m pretty sure that is something I can do during our upcoming travels and other times when mindless knitting will be the trick. So I’ll save those for a bit.
Part of me thinks I need to start knitting bibs and diaper wraps and baby socks and all that. And, part of me is just too afraid. I know that’s silly…but I’m still a bit afraid. Even telling myself that if something horrible should happen, that I can donate the items, I am afraid to cast them on.
I guess I’m just thinking out loud again. But if you have any thoughts or advice, I’d love the feedback!
