I hate the feeling of doing a TON of something (in this case, knitting) and having nothing to show for it. I’ve been mostly working on mitered squares and while it’s a mini accomplishment to get anything done, I wish I had more finished objects to show for it. I have one thing that’s half finished, as in one of a pair:
It took almost a whole skein of this beautiful yarn to get this thing. It would have been super smart if I had written down the number of stitches, or rows, or when I decided to do some short row shaping for my forearms… Yeah, that would have been super smart. Oh well, huh. I kind of just did whatever here and it worked out at least once.
It was all done intuitively, as they like to say on ze blogs. But I would have said I winged it and got something that works. I need this for my office because it’s SO cold in the winter. Knit flat, couple short rows for shaping and an easy seam with a gap for a thumb. Surely I will be able to wing another one. (Famous last words).
Speaking of messy den, here is the rug that I got for free a few weeks couple months ago:
I might eventually take pictures of all the squares I’m working on. I plan to start scarf #3 in a baby blue and spring green wool houndstooth. If it’s as awesome as it is in my head, you’ll be floored.
