Try to control yourselves


I've gotten up to the armhole shaping (or the place where I'll start the armhole shaping) on my wrap cardi. Can you stand the excitement? Yes, I know it still looks like a rectangle, but it's a rectangle knit on two different size needles with two strands of yarn in one place and one strand in another place? Does this make it more exciting? Not so much, huh?

Yeah, I'm losing steam knitting it and the fact that the temps got warm here again isn't helping with the motivation. I keep telling myself that once I get this done and the other front (and it's not taking that long to do once I sit down and actually knit it) that the sleeves will zip by and then I can sew it together and have my first Fall 2007 cardi finished. Unfortunately, because of all the switching yarns and needles, it's not a project I can sit and work on in small moments of the day, or when I'm distracted or when I'm on the phone. I have to sit down and get into a rhythm with it. My goal is to finish this front and start on the right front by this weekend, maybe that will help. No really, it will help.

You don't like making things difficult, do you? I hope the differences of the yarn and needles show up better in real life! I would just knit one yarn, once set of needles and hope that I finished it in 17 years!!!

It's supposed to turn colder around here tomorrow... maybe that will put you more in the knitting mood! :)
