Blog-Driven Knitting

There are some days when it seems as if I’m hurrying my knitting progress just so that I have something to blog about…tail wagging dog scenario, no?

So Close!

I’ve always called myself an aggressive knitter.  When non-knitters tell me how much patience I must have to knit, I tell them it’s quite the opposite…my knitting mantra is “NEXT ROW…NEXT ROW!!!”

Hardly peaceful, serene or patient, I know.  But it is how I’ve become so prolific in my knitting.  I’m not an extremely fast knitter, so I have to knit a lot to produce as much as I do.

Last night, I found myself close to the time Thaddeus and I would be going to bed and I was working on a baby blanket.  I kept thinking I was going to be able to finish this project before we went up to bed, knowing in the back of my mind that there was no way I could knit quite that fast.  Turns out, I was left with two and a half rows of knitting, and it pained me to head up to bed with so little left to finish the project, since I knew I would be blogging the next morning.

After a restless night of worrying about having left something so close to finished, I got up this morning and I present to you my current WIP instead of an FO in the Current Knitting section of the blog.

This blog ain’t the boss ‘o me!

Current Knitting

As noted above, I am working on the Teddy Bear Baby Blanket and I’m almost finished.




Just two more rows (I knit half a row this morning for the blog photo shoot…wagging the dog a bit) and a bind-off, blocking, and weaving in of ends.

I did finish the Knitted Cross Stitch Scarf (which was also almost complete on Friday’s blog).




It came out beautifully, and I will be making a few more of these for upcoming craft shows toward the end of the year.
