I am back to blogging… and I am nervous about it.
College has taken some of that blind faith that I had a few years ago and ground it into the dirt like a discarded cigarette. I love writing. I love reading. I love it all, but this year has been torture on the insecurity… yikes.
So… welcome to my mess!
This blog is going to mostly focus on my (mis)adventures in knitting with some wine reviews and a little bit of life thrown in for good measure.
To get started talking about knitting let me tell you of all of the things I still have to finish.
1.) My Sand Tracks Cardigan: I started this for me last fall. It is a really beautiful piece, but is taking for-ev-er. It takes me about an hour to knit one cable pattern. Frustrating. But it will be gorgeous when finished.
2.) My Dad’s Moose Gloves: (Annemor #7) Like most knitters, I like to finish one item in a pair, then go home. These selbu gloves are beautiful, but knitting the fingers are a challenge. Really it won’t take me too long to actually finish them… I just need to get into gear and finish.
3.) My Inlay Socks: (in the picture above) I was gifted this yarn, it is gorgeous. I have no idea what it is, however. It feels like a cotton mix. Unfortunately, the Inlay pattern was a bit too advanced for me when I started, so I have about 3/4 of the cuff finished. I want them, so I am not going to frog this piece. Just need to knit.
4.) Falling Snow Stocking part II: I am 5 inches from the end. Why did I not finish the second one? It was so simple! And so much fun. I love the norwegian snowflakes. Hello Rustic Mountain Christmas!
Sometimes I think that I have a fear of finishing.
It’s like reading a great book, when you finish you feel like you are leaving a good friend behind. You spend so long developing a relationship and then it’s done. You’re relationship changes, it’s over. No more mystery if you go back to it. *sigh*
I am talking about a relationship with yarn… I am the kind of crazy that only fiber junkies understand.
Thanks for reading my first post back into the blogging world. Sorry if knitting isn’t your thing, but hang out. I have wine too.
