And that’s the end of that
I think I have officially failed out of my New Year’s resolutions.
We just spent this last week at my Mom’s house helping fix up a few reno projects she had on the go. It was good, but Little Girl and I came home sick. It is completely unrelated to the trip, but it kind of sucks.
I have cheated on my February pair of socks. They are not going to be done by the end of the month. The thing is… I cheated on a cute little shrug.. with Little Girl. She wanted me to knit her something. She wanted to knit with me. How could I say no to that?
Both sides of the family make faces while concentrating. She was doomed on that one.
That was a long winded way of saving I have knit a size 4 T sweater in less than a 10 days by completely neglecting my sock project. I love the socks because they fit in my purse, but the sweater was instant gratification by comparison. It was knit on needles more than 5 times the size of my sock needles and so felt like it knit up five times as fast.
So now I have one and a quarter socks looking forlornly at me and all I want to do is go find more sweater yarn. Little girls sweater was knit from stash yarn. But the only sweater worth of stash yarn I have is from the cursed sweater. The one I knit and ripped out both sleeves TWICE before giving up and frogging the whole thing. Which means that if I really want to keep knitting larger gauge… I have to go shopping.
So far I am resisting. A sweater worth of yarn is a BIG purchase. $9 -$20+ a skein and I would need at least five skeins. I do NOT have that kind of budget. I am holding out. There is supposed to be a sweater yarn swap in March. Maybe someone else can use my cursed yarn and I can trade for something that I don’t have knitting baggage over.
