i've finished all the mittens. the miss-matched set is dear...
so with the end of the mittens, i had nothing on my needles. i kept looking about at patterns, trying to think of projects that i would need to have done this year, and maybe even a few that needed to be finished. i found my hitchhiker scarf that i started in 2011, dragged it out and took a look. i was almost done so there was no excuse. i started knitting and within a day i was casting off. the funny part was, that as i was finishing it last evening i was waiting at gymnastics. the gal next to me asked about my project and how long it would take to make it. i just sat for a moment, looking at my yarn deciding how best to answer. (i mean really, it is a simple garter stitch scarf.) so i simply explained that it was a simple knit that takes most knitters a short time to finish. the truth? oh yea, i just wasn't going to explain that i was unable to get it done in a timely manner because i have no logical, reasonable answer!
so, there i was this morning with nothing to knit and my newest spinning project whispering and winking at me. on i cast!
so no excuses... just lots of knitting!
