Oh dear me....

Many months ago I spotted a lovely project on this blog. I admired it, went back for a second and third look, and knew that one day I would make the very same. And then I forgot about it. Recently I was busily working away on the laptop, ok, really, I was browsing through Ravelry, you know that, and I came across the same pattern once more. So I saved it and knew that I would knit this very beautiful thing, for myself, immediately after the festive season was over. Skip forward a few weeks and I found the lovely KnitPicks yarn on Ebay and knew it would be perfect for my lovely project. And because it would be so perfect I couldn't decide a colour so bought three different shades. As you do. So browsing through the YarnAlong posts yesterday I discovered a post featuring my lovely project, and it was knitted in one of those very shades of the lovely yarn I had so recently acquired. Well that's got to be fate right? So last night I gave in to it, picked my shade and wound the skein into a workable ball of scrummy yarn.

Just getting prepared you see for when the festive makes were through. Yes, I would be already to go. In fact so ready that I cast on. And so here we are. No further done on the festive makes, and another project added to yesterdays list.


Well didn't someone once say "a girl can never have too many shoes"? For me it's projects on the go, obviously. But there is a redeeming feature to this latest project......it's a train knit, yippee! I haven't a little portable knit since the Hitchhiker, well socks are ok I suppose but a bit awkward to work on whilst chatting to that stranger across the seat who wants to tell you what a great knitter his/her mum was, and how they wished they'd learned, and is it cheaper to knit your own? Yeah right,you'd better stck to just wishing you knit then........

Clearly too many projects on the go is far more productive than shoes! My bare feet and I can personally vouch for this! Yesterday I picked up 3 different projects and did a little of each before staring at four rather huge balls of cotton that I just received in the mail. For once I restrained myself but only because I was babysitting 3 very small children who seemed to be hyped up on something sugary! I was ready to pull my hair out and knit with that by the time they finally went home. Being the glutton for punishment that I am, I am totally going to hang out with one of those munchkins again today! LOL Happy Knitting!!!!

I love your shoe comment. I find that I'm getting more and more that way about yarn and knitting like you. I say having a variety of projects going is a good thing - they each serve a different purpose and can be done during different occasions.
