A lot of knitting, and not much to show for it...
So, I realize now, with 4 sweater projects going on my needles, that knitting 4 sweaters at the same time makes for slow progress on all 4. It feels like I'm inching inching inching along, and never really getting anywhere. I know, of course, that I am getting somewhere - but it just feels like I'm not. Psychoknittylogically.
And it's a bit frustrating. And also, I'm thinking, ill-timed. For they are all four, bound to be finished just about the time we cast off our sweaters and go dancing about in the warm Spring sunshine. Ah well. <big sigh>
People who want knitting to be a relaxing hobby should not complain about the process but simply enjoy the slow, tinkering nature of going one stitch at a time. I, however, really want to wear my sweater, and would like myself to hurry up about it, already!! Get a move on, sister. Time's a wastin'.
Side note -
I have found another designer who I love love love!! Her name is Kirsten Johnstone (that's a Ravelry link)
and her knit designs are fabulous! Here's a link to her blog: http://www.assemblage.typepad.com/ for those of you not on Ravelry. You "non-knitters". (You are a strange and mysterious bunch, you!)
Her designs are simple/modern/chic with clean lines, and understated colors. Love love this hat (again - another Ravelry link)... almost bought the pattern last night, and now I am so glad I was able to exhibit the slightest bit of self-control (which is not at all my thing) and I waited... because today is the anniversary of her blog, apparently, and she is offering a 50% discount on all of her patterns. So Hooray for self-control! Now I can buy twice the amount of patterns :)
(Notice how I'm not going to buy the same amount of patterns at half the price - because that would be sensible. and frugal. On second thought - maybe I should be frugal today. Yes, I will try.)
But I can't promise anything.
