I knit, ALOT.
Let me say also, I crochet, embroider, sew, punch needle, rug hook, paint, ect ect ect. What person who crafts, crafts only one thing? (forgive me if there are some of you out there)
I have alot to say about crafting tho so I thought I would put my thoughts on paper (or virtual paper as it were) for everyone who gets a fancy, can read it.
Getting to the reasoning behind the title of my “Blog”…
I always say “Life gets in the way of my knitting”…I said it tonight at 7pmish as I secretly wanted to turn every clock in the house to 8:30pm, hoping I could convince my 6yo son that it truly was bedtime so I could get some “Mom Time” to work on this. He wasnt buying it and I had to wait another hour and a half to put him to bed before I could knit. Its not like I cant knit with him around me…I stand in line, (DMV) sit in waiting rooms, driving (while im a passenger of course, im not [B][I][U]that[/U][/I][/B] good, or stupid. take your pick.), I even have my knitting bag hanging on my arm while my son and I take walks, But not lace. Lace is like a high maintenence drama queen. It must have all the attention and will not put up with anything less. So I waited till my “Mom Time”.
Im thinking this is an addiction…but its not to the point of neglecting my children for it…close…but not yet. My husband? hes up a creek.
I am working on the Shawl now tho…(well, not right [B][I][U]now[/U][/I][/B]…) This is my design, or compendum really because all of these patterns came from several different pattern books and some stuff straight outta my head, and then thrown together like one of those leftover stews? Yanno what I mean? The thing is…ya cant just “throw” it together…theres more details involved…theres math and then…why the hell ain’t this working!!!
Its not a pretty picture…
But it will be. When Im done with it. I hope to get a legable pattern together so I can sell it. After all the time I have already put into this, It would be good to see it knit and enjoyed by other people.
More pics and chat about knitting the shawl and other stuff to come later…
For now…I leave you with this…
