What’s on the needles
Mara: This project is in time out. I don’t even want to look at it, with its never ending rows that grow at a glacial speed. On Wednesday I almost bound Mara off, even though I’m not done, just because I couldn’t stand to look at it any longer. The romance is dead, y’all.

Ulmus: I love this. A lot. I love knitting it, I love the crazy colors, I’m not even mildly annoyed by two balls of yarn. This might even get promoted to vacation knitting I’m having so much fun with it. You think about that Mara. You think about that long and hard. You think of the beautiful relationship you and I used to have, and how you ruined it.
Socks for The Scientist: I worked on these a bit this week, but I have no idea how much because I am old and I can’t remember.
Herbivore: Herbiwho? Never heard of it. Ok, fine. No progress.
Abbi: Do I even need to say it? No progress.
What’s off the needles
When it comes to my knitting, I need to remember to start living in the present rather than the future. Within minutes of starting a project I’m already gazing longingly at my queue, ready to be done with whatever is on my needles so I can cast on a new pretty. SLOW DOWN THERE, HOSS. Knitting isn’t a race. I’m not going to win a prize for making the most projects. So I guess my current obsession is to stop having current obsessions? Good luck on that one, sweetheart.
