I said I would never knit anything with thrums again. I don't like knitting with them, pain in the ass, and so on. But, yes, there is a but - I only have the thumb to finish on the 2nd mitt - and I will have so much yarn and roving left over it would be a shame to let it sit in the stash. With the left over, I will knit my one year old nephew a pair. How much work is involved to knit a one year old a pair of mitts anyway? Not much. I'll use up the left over, he will have a very warm pair of mitts and best of all, his mom will not have to worry whether he has warm enough mitts on.
I have a daily knitting schedule - in the morning I knit a few rows on the Flower Basket Shawl (this morning I knit 6 rows - taking the total of repeats completed to 2 out of 7), during the morning and evening commutes I knit on the vest and at night I knit on the thrummed mittens. There are days I feel I am not getting anywhere close to finishing any of the three, but today, I feel the end is near.
Once these three projects are off the needles - I'm concentrating on one project at a time. I've said it before, and I never seem to be able to keep my hands of starting another knit, but I am sticking to it. Why? I want to loose 10 pounds and can't work out if all my spare time is spent knitting.
I understand 10 pounds doesn't seem like alot, but if I don't start now, it will be harder, and I might have more to loose than just the 10 pounds. Now that I have documented my plan, I have no other choice but to stick with it.
I won't be posting this weekend because I'll be a cleaning machine on Saturday to prepare for Maddie's party and hosting her party for her friends and family on Sunday.
Have a great weekend.
