You asked if I how I was resisting the urge to throw aside my Jaywalker socks and cast on the Prove it all Night STR. Thanks for asking...I am doing my best to remain very ‘Zen’ about the situation and finish the few small things I have on the needles now.
I've been lollygagging and taking much to long to finish this poor pair of Jaywalker's. One is now finished and the other has been cast on. The incentive of STR in the Prove It All Night colorway is strong, especially when I listen to Bruce (as I have been doing quite a bit lately). I want to play with my Prove it All Night. Well, not just play (I've been doing that), but KNIT IT. (Must remain Zen.)
Now I wonder why I had to make the cuff so long and why is my foot a 9 1/2 when a size 6 would be finished much sooner? (Breath.) I understand you have much smaller feet so you cannot feel how painful this really is. Oh wait, yes you can! You knit a pair of socks for me for Sockapal2za. I dearly love them and wear them often and thank you again. As we know from our blog pal Stephanie, a single sock has over 17,000 stitches. Knitting socks is a commitment, especially for someone else.
I did get a little side tracked with a pair of Voodoo's made from alpaca and a lovely Koigu gauntlet, too. I had so much trouble with the second Voodoo, which is simple 2x2 rib, but I started it with a 1x1 rib and then cast on again with only 46 stitches instead of 48...gah! (Breath...think Zen.) My excuse is that I was at Stitch 'n Bitch and you know how distracting Susan can be. The second gauntlet will be started in time for our SnB party next week (we're celebrating our 2 year anniversary!). It is easy stockinette and will clearly a good project for 'non-thinking' moments. Wish you could be here to join our fun.
I know you still miss Lotus (it was just too big for my 'new' body to continue) and I know you will keep a close eye on my progress with Rosarie. She is a beauty and has been my main knitting. I don't want to set aside Seaweed for long as Cassie is excited about her progress. It is just too bad that there is so much beautiful yarn, so many fabulous patterns and grandiose ideas floating around this house. It's a good thing I'm in the StashALong that Kim started so I can get a handle on all this knitting. (I will be Zen enough to get through it.)
Well, I best be off to see if I can get a few more stitches in this Jaywalker. Will I finish it this weekend, find time for Rosarie and maybe put a few more rows on Seaweed? Or will all those little things distract me again? I'll let you know next week. Enjoy your weekend.
silly meme was started by JenLa and La just wouldn't let me pass. You can see I'm a Western Grrl. (La, is that ugly enough?)
