How do you maintain such firm commitment to one project at a time? Bohus is gorgeous but I could never do all that black stockinette without sticking it away somewhere out of sight at least on occasion!
I confess that I feel like I am knitting a black hole. No matter how much I knit the black stockinette (Hey, did I mention it was on a 2.5mm needle? Oh, I did? Okay, carry on.), it just doesn’t seem to grow. This is quite a mystery to me.
I suppose it might have something to do with the fact that every time I sit down with my Black Hole of Knitting, I find an excuse to jump up and do something within 5 minutes. Gotta load the dishwasher. Gotta empty the wastebaskets. Gotta unload the dishwasher. Gotta brush Lucy (again).
Gee, do you suppose this is why I am making such slow progress?
But I do stick to it. I will not allow myself to start another project until the Bohus is done (well, apart from socks for commuter knitting). If I were to start something new, all would be lost. And besides, I really want this sweater, so I am motivated to complete it.
Here is a photo of black stockinette. But, ooh! Look! A penguin!
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
So, to further distract you from the fact that all I have is another photo of black stockinette stitch, here is a picture of something I got for Christmas:
It’s a cauliflower sheep. With a mushroom face. (No, not real cauliflower & mushroom — it’s ceramic.)
(And no, I don’t know where it was purchased.)
Lucy thinks it is just plain silly.
She would like you to know that she posed for this photo under my Ott Light so you could see her true colors.
