One down, one and a half to go
Question for readers: what is your longest WIP? In terms of time it has been a WIP?
Anyway. I was reorganizing the stash a bit preparing for the influx of cotton ease, and counted up my afghan squares. I was surprised that I have 18 full squares done, and one square that needs the border added. So I only have one additional square to finish for the afghan.
Now, you'd think this would send me into the Encore pile and get casting on for square 20. But I haven't. Mostly because it means that I'll have to then put the whole darn thing together, and then knit on the pretty twisty cable border, and the whole thing will be beautiful but I just don't want to do it right now.
I want to cast on for Lady Eleanor.
I feel right now that there is sooooo much I want to knit in the stash right now (yay) and that I wouldn't do the afghan with knitterly joy, just with the feeling that I must finish because I must finish. You know? So...I think I'll wait for that last burst of inspiration to finish the afghan.
Phew! Feel better now.
Not much knitting will be done this weekend, as we paint our dining room. Our house has not been painted since it was build (13 years) and we are slowly (s-l-o-w-l-y) getting around to painting all the rooms. We've done one so far (in May of 2005). At the rate we're going, we'll finish, um, later.
