Knitting Up A Storm!

Tuesday, February 27, 2007

My Flower Basket Shawl has only been getting some love on and off since November 2005. Man, that is pretty bad isn't it? No need to say anything, I know the answer. I think I have knitted about half of the 500 yard ball of cotton from 2005 Maryland Wool & Sheep Festival, so I must be getting close to the end, right?

My goal is to finish this little shawl by end of winter so I can wear it in Spring under a light coat. To help me reach my goal, I have brought in the big guns, ladies. My new knitpicks options needles. This morning I put the stitches from my dull tip needles onto the big guns and knit one row with them. The k2togers and the slip1, K2tog, pass slipped stitch overs seem to be smoother. So now there are no more excuses, I am getting my ass in gear.

Of course, I have to finish the 2nd Fetching, Wicked and the cabled sweater I started so long ago. But I am going to do it. These knitpicks option needles have given me a confidence I have not felt! Okay, I know, I know, a bit dramatic for you? Too bad, I'm getting myself all psyched up to finish these projects ASAP.
