A question from yesterday’s comments. Rose asked:
Are you just a fast knitter in general or does it depend on the project? Or better yet, do you go into denial on a project and let it linger for a long time? I seem to be real fast on some projects, and real slow on others, regardless of difficulty, yarn, size or needles. I don’t think it’s the lack of enthusiasm for a project or the yarn either… (Anyone else have this issue???)
I am a fast knitter in general, but my speed does vary depending on the project. There’s some stuff I just knit faster than other stuff. And if it’s something I’m bored with, I knit fewer hours per day on it. Something I find interesting will always go faster for me.
I tend not to let projects linger. If I’m bound and determined to complete them, I will, in a fairly timely fashion. It I decide I don’t like something, I’ll abandon it and never return to it. I don’t think I’ve ever picked up an abandoned UFO in my life.
I have a “Celtic Dreams” pullover languishing somewhere that is totally done, except for half a sleeve. I suddenly went “off” it and abandoned it (remember that, Geane?), I may not even have it anymore. I might has thrown it out in one of my cleaning frenzies. I’m not even sure why I don’t like it — it’s a perfectly nice design.
(BTW doing a Google search on “celtic dreams” will give you links to places where you can buy the pattern, with photos, in case you don’t know what I’m talking about.)
Something I Didn’t Abandon
Remember the Dale baby sweater I made in June? Here it is, shortly after the mom-to-be opened it at her baby shower last weekend.
