Good news- I have a new pair of slippers! Very toasty…. Bad news- my poor husband has none. Bad news that would be good news if I didn’t have so many other things to knit- I have to make a pair of felted clogs. Humbug!
One of those other things to knit is the Rosa Parks scarf from the Sock Yarn One Skein Wonder book. I have been slowly knitting the hat from the September DreamClub. I have been forcing myself to knit this hat and not enjoying it (very obviously, since it’s been on the needles since September and it’s A HAT for crying out loud). I don’t wear hats, my daughter doesn’t wear hats, not a single person in my family is a hat person and I have no one to give this thing to and I finally asked myself a question last night. I said to myself “Susan, why are you allowing this lovely yarn to languish, attached to a hat you don’t like when there are so many projects that you’d enjoy in the Sock Yarn One Skein Wonder book?” The only answer I had for myself was “because you are an idiot, that’s why”. So I am frogging, and re-winding the yarn and I am going to make this beautiful scarf. And I’m happy.
I also need to make a pair of wristers to match my daughter’s socks. Going to stick them in her stocking. I want to finish my Baby Alpaca scarf. Need to do some wristers for a friend (would like to do socks, but how do I measure her feet without her suspecting something?) And then there are those darn felted clogs! I have so many things in progress and so many things I haven’t even started yet. I think I need a top 10 15 20 list. And way more free time. 😛
