I had to laugh at how many comments I got on the last post – did you really think I’d burn such pretty yarn? I ended up ripping Mr. Greenjeans out – I agreed with a lot of comments that it was only 4 stitches, but I was really not in the mood to figure out what the impact of the 4 stitche less in each sleeve – and the impact of the 8 additional stitches in each section. So the yarn is sitting in my basket, enjoying a timeout. I thought I’d have already cast on for Cece, but something strange happened before I could do that.
I didn’t want to start Cece when I didn’t have the focus to make sure I started it right – so I thought I’d do it Friday. While I waited, I started working on the projects in my basket again, and the strangest thing happened. I fell in love with them all over again! I’ve been working on Hypoteneuse primarily (with a couple of switches to the 9-5 socks and the Autumn throw). I am really enjoying it – this is Silky Wool, and it is just so nice to knit with.
I’ve finished 11 repeats, and have 6 to go – and the end is starting to look near. I don’t know if its reaistic, but I even think I’ll be done today. OK, if not today, then maybe this week. And because of that – I just don’t want to start anything new. I want to finish this – and then just maybe I’ll start working on the throw and finish that. And then I’ll start something new – what do you think? Not having these two major projects in the basket will make me feel virtuous – and not as guilty about starting new things. And you know what? I’m really enjoying them both, so its not such a drag to put off the new sweater. Does that ever happen to you? Do you fall in love with an older project and find yourself only wanting to knit on it?
I’ve been having such a nice weekend – which got an unofficial start of lunch with Chris on Friday (she was off, I was working from home). Nothing exiting about the weekend, but its just nice to relax and spend time at home with the family.
One of the blogs I read posted that she was not going to blog any longer – its the second one that I’ve seen this week. I wondered if this is a cycle thing, and people come and go, or if this is a larger impact of Ravelry. I’ve seen posts where people say they don’t blog as much because of Ravelry – to me they are very different mediums. I don’t post a lot on Ravelry forums – I mostly use it to look up yarns and patterns. What do you think? Do you think people blog less because of it, or is it something else that make people stop blogging?
OK, I’m going to go knit on Hypoteneuse….have a great Sunday!
