As fall continues, and we approach mid-September (Already? How did that happen?) I was excited to see Lolly announce Socktoberfest 2007! I’m ridiculously excited. I took part in Socktoberfest last year, but I was so busy with school that it quickly fell by the wayside.
I’m already thinking about things I could knit. I NEED to finish my father’s socks (they were, um, last year’s Christmas gift) but I seem to have lost one of my needles. They’re Knitpicks US1, but I can’t remember which Knitpicks US1, so I can’t just order another set.
Plus, I still have the yummy fall shades of Knitpicks Gloss that I bought last October, and I’m thinking either Widdershins or Monkey would look great.
I’m still plugging away on Sizzle. The fact that people are now apparently reading this blog (or at least clicking over to it once or twice) is really motivating me to knit so that I have something to write about.
As you can see, not a ton of progress, but today was a long day. I ran into coworker R as we were leaving work, and I was knitting on MUNI while I talked to him, and he asked me how long it would take to knit this top, if I just started and didn’ t stop at all.
After I finished contemplating the concept with a mixture of awe (Knitting? Without stopping? Really?) and horror (Cotton? Without stopping? Are you serious?) I realized, I’m not really sure. How do you figure how fast you knit?
It’s really hard for me to guess, because as we all know, I am NOT project monogamous. I tried, once, to count up all my unfinished objects, but once I was amidst the sea of half-knitted projects I found myself so demoralized that I shoved the whole lot of them in a box under the bed.
Perhaps I’ll try sticking to a project for a while and seeing what happens.
Hey, stop laughing. It could happen.
