I’m still working on the Kimono shawl. And I’m starting to hate it. I haven’t worked on just one project since I started knitting…and its starting to really kill me. I’m up to repeat 15 (7 to go if I do 22, 10 to go if I do 25…ugh). I think the shawl is beautiful, and the deadline is seriously looming, but I really need to knit something…anything else. And I can’t. Because of the deadline. Whose idea was it to knit something for Christmas?
I knit on the train yesterday for a little bit, but not the whole trip to work. On the way home, I worked. I think I was just avoiding it. So after dinner, I got it out and did a few rows. Its starting to feel like a punishment.
I got my Christmas yarn from Sophie’s Toes – amazing. Ordered it Friday, got it Monday! Its so beautiful. And I really really really want to cast on for a pair of socks. I haven’t knit socks in weeks – what if I forget how? I probably shouldn’t have ordered this until I finish the shawl – I came periously close last night to just bailing (after all, I can make it a birthday gift, right?). But I knew if I pushed the shawl off, I won’t finish it anytime soon.
No more deadline knitting for me, and thanks for listening to me whine!
