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:  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.


  1. Psychoknittylogically - LOVE it! For so many reasons. But mostly because knitters are inarguably psycho and there is NOTHING logical about the passionate business of knitting. But it must be done. Must. Knit.

    Your many sweaters are many times lovely!

  2. aww, thank you for the love! you are sweet!
    happy knitting.
