love to knit…

I’m not sure if this is very obvious, but I tend to have a few projects on the go, all at the same time. My boyfriend asked me the other day why I am always starting something new, and not just working on the things that I’ve had sitting around for ages. My attention span is not always long, and I like being able to pick up something different, if I find myself getting impatient with my current muse.

Also, I don’t like having a deadline (as such) for the things I’m making for myself. It turns it into much more of a chore, and that slows my progress.

So, true to form, a few nights ago I cast on my latest project. I ordered this gorgeous kit from the Dairing website. It will be a lovely, slouchy shrug when its done, knitted with 2 different coloured strands of 100% silk (how luxerous!). I love the way the silk is working up, its soft and supple, but still holds it’s shape. I have a long way to go until it’s finished, but I’m just doing a little more each night, and I’m sure it will be done before long.

I love to knit, don’t you?

    Haha boyfriends never understand the need to have a few projects on the go at once! Because I do several crafts, I always have one project for each craft on the go, so I can choose whichever one takes my fancy! So far I am knitting a beanie (for said boyfriend so he can’t complain really…) cross stitching a sampler, knitting a scarf and sewing a thread catcher, then I can choose whichever one is most appealing on an evening! My boyfriend just thinks this is an excuse to buy more craft stuff though…hehe

      That is a very good way to get around the issue! I actually tried it on my boyfriend the other night, he just grinned and rolled his eyes. A good response, I think! Thanks for the idea 🙂
