This is really sad...and kind of embarrassing....Ok, not kind of. It is embarrassing. Most of you that have been around for a while know that I love knitting/crocheting and that I like to keep my hands busy. I love the creative process and I love watching a project unfold into something beautiful and useful. Here's the embarrassing part....I hate blocking. And I don't mean that I find it annoying. I mean I hate the process...all those pins. UGH! Therefore, I was tickled to death when my Sainted Mother gave me blocking wires for Christmas. I thought surely this would help. Right? Wrong.
See this stack? All finished projects just waiting to be enjoyed...if I would get off my derriere and block them. Seriously, how pathetic is this?
The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief. The one next to that is Mairi. It's been finished, other than blocking, for almost a year. Next is my Saroyan. It's only a few months old, as is the Summer Flies shawlette that looks like a dark blob in this picture. I don't even remember the name of the the brown and tan fuzzy shawl that's in the mix.
And you know what's even worse? They are all still sitting there and I've started something else....
Nimbus. I'm actually a bit further along than this. OK, a lot further along than this. As in the pattern calls for 24 repeats and I'm on the 25th repeat because I wanted to make it a little larger since I'm a little...um...larger. Ahem. Actually, I just have a long torso and I wanted this to reach my waist....yeah, that's it. The yarn is Mountain Colors Crazyfoot in the Red Willow colorway. It's really interesting to see the orange pops in this picture because it's actually more of a rust color. My goal is to complete this and then...wait for it...block everything this weekend. We'll see how that goes.
Are you more successful in completing your projects?
