Firstly, I feel like Snoopy as the hospital discharged me.
What great news. Outcome... I still dont have all the answers because my scans didnt reveal anything. and it could happen again. Well Thats life, and onto something that fills my my heart with happiness. Creating
This ball of wool, is calling me. Its saying "Knit me, Knit me," but I must resist as I still havent quite finished my second sock yet.
Its my own fault, I blame myself entirely I have been drooling over my wool stash, looking over patterns and now I have made a decision I cant wait to start. So let me tell you more. I shall be using this lovely sock wool. Such lovely soft colours. Its Opal Vincent van Gogh "The Trinquetaille Bridge" sock wool. A range of yarns based on Van Gogh's paintings
I am going to knit a scarf with it. The pattern is called hitchhiker on Ravelry.
It sounds so intriguing and fun. You start with just 2 stitches and you keep increasing to a certain point then stop when you run out of wool or when you have had enough. How good is that, no panic of running out of wool (unless its not as long as you would have liked) The result being either a cowl or long scarf. I have a 100gm ball so we shall see how far we get with it, this should be interesting.
Do you get excited at the prospect of starting a new project be it a pattern or a piece of fabric just waiting to be cut into. Part of the reason I am always thinking ahead with projects, especially knitting is to spur me onto finishing whats on the needles, Im a slow knitter, sewing is so much quicker.
I only have one knitting project on the go at a time, it would be fatal starting something new.
I wasnt always like this. When I first started dressmaking in my teens I remember having lots of bags of unfinished pieces, probably when I had either gone wrong or couldnt understand the pattern. They used to be stashed away behind my Mums sofa. She did complain about them. Of course back then in the 70s there was no internet for research, tutorials so I just trundled along.
So readers do you knit or sew one piece at a time? Are you forever planning the next project, or do you have lots of projects on the go at once, and if so do they get finished?
