I am suffering from severe second sleeve syndrome. I have been knitting away on my Sawetelle sweater, row after garter stitch row. I have made really great progress until I finished the first sleeve. That is when things came to a screeching halt.
As much as I love this project, and I am sure I will love it a lot more when it is not lurking in the project basket screaming at me to finish it. I have become distracted. I plead guilty on all accounts of have a bit of Attention Deficit when it come to knitting and crochet.
I realized two days ago that a friend needed these flowers. So I whipped them up and now they have been starched and are drying.
Then I realized that I am going to see my son in a few days and I needed something festive to wear in Ohio State colors. I bought this yarn ages ago to make a scarf for him, so selfishly I made one for myself instead. I still have more than enough yarn for him, and out of guilt I casted on 27 stitches for his scarf last night. Another garter stitch project, but one with very little thought about construction, just a few simple stripes here and there. We know boys, at least this boy, he will lose it just about as fast as he can
So I swear upon my knitting honor that I will resume the Sawtelle sweater just as soon as I am back from my weekend seeing my son. I will work on his scarf until then, but when I get back it is sweater time all the way. By the way my scarf is finished project of the year number 35. And I have approximately 51 hours until I can see my boys beautiful face. Hooray!!!!
