No Glee this week (isn’t baseball over yet?) – but I found this clip, which I love…
In a recent rearranging of some furniture I found a bag of unfinished projects. Hoo-boy. Some of these are really, “What Was I thinking?” (in my head it’s Christine Lavin – video link). And, “Why aren’t the ball bands with the yarn?!”
This was going to be a lengthwise scarf – where you start off casting on 400 stitches and knit only 20 rows? I remember starting this on a school field trip when I was teaching, so it’s from 2005 or 2006. Bad idea. Couldn’t keep track of the stitches. Frogged. Interesting side note, this summer I bought more of the darker yarn (Classic Elite Premier) from the sale section at a LYS, potentially for Rusted Root.
A Zebra Scarf using Plymouth “Oh My” yarn. I think I will finish this one and gift it to Lorelai in a few years.
A sweater. OMG. It needs the seams under the arms done and the picking up of stitches on the fronts fixed – I am sure this is why the sweater was tossed into the bag – I tried to pick up stitches and didn’t get enough but I did get puckering. This is something I can save. Sitcom Chic pattern, Cotton Ease yarn – August, 2005.
A little bag from April 2005. Sophie? from magknits I think… I think it needs one more handle. And I do have 2 more balls of this ribbon yarn. I should finish it and give it to Lorelai, but it just annoys me.
Well, it’s out there in the open now. I’ve owned up to these projects, and I do feel somewhat better having frogged a few things. But I’m dreaming of the next projects that will be on the needles… Same story, different day! Maybe I got tired of blue….?
