Back and Forth....S l o w l y

Hello!!  I'm so happy that you all like Esmeralda!  She needs a little work...a bath will do wonders.  She might need a new band, we'll see. And Car Guy has to work a little magic on her wheel.  I'm afraid that with age, one of her joins has separated so he'll have to perform a little surgery with some wood glue and a band...I like to think that one of her knees needs a little reconstruction work.

My poor Lady Kina has been sitting mostly to the side while I learn to spin.  She's been very patient, but every time I see her sitting over there, I feel a bit guilty, so I decided I'd better pick her up and give her a little attention.  Look at her.  I really don't have a lot left to do....just 19 cm on the body and then the sleeves. But seriously, it's moving so S L O W L Y.  I know that I'll love her when she's finished and I've been trying to remind myself that all good things are worth waiting for...right?

It's Wednesday, so that means I get to go hang out with the Biscuits tonight....I am so looking forward to a little girl time. Hope your day goes well!


  1. I have a sweater on the needles at the bottom of my knitting bag and I feel guilty every time I knit my I know exactly how you feel!

    1. What is up with that?!?! How does an inanimate object have the ability to make us feel guilty?!?!

  2. Your sweater looks lovely, and I am sure it will be well worth it when you are wearing it :)

    Hope you have a lovely evening.

  3. Hi Melissa.. it's neat to hear you're fixing up Esmerelda! While she's getting spiffed you can finish that knitting so it won't make you feel guilty any more. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. I love it. I want to wear grey daily these days, it seems. Must be my underlining need to dress to match the weather!

    (Ps: I was cleaning up my work space today and lo and behold I found my 'get better soon' package for you that we had talked about. I thought I had shipped it off ages ago! I'm so sorry! There is a blessing here, however, because now I can slip in some new goodies that I did not have made at the time I put your kit together).

  5. I so get what you are saying! I have the socks I was working on for my daughter that have sat since I started my cardigan. Tsk, tsk on this guilt feeling, I thought knitting was suppose to be relaxing!

  6. I can't relate to the knitting, because my skills start and stop with a glue stick, but I can relate to the stress and guilt of unfinished projects. Mostly though, its projects I thought of, have been meaning to get started, but have not even had the time to start! Sheesh!

  7. Oooo that sweater will so be worth the wait! beautiful! i will be bookmarking that pattern for when i finally (yes, slow going indeed) finish the shalom cardigan! and a huge congrats on the spinning wheel!!!
