I think I suffer from knitting A.D.D., I can't seem to work on anything for very long lately. Granted Wayne's tall and that's making his sweater take forever - miles and miles of endless ribbing. And it's hard to feel like you're getting anywhere.
So I started a sock - I have a goal of 5 for Socktoberfest, right - not any particular sock, just a sock. I wish it were my Harvest Sock Swap sock, but I'm still waiting for the needles. Back to the sock, you can feel a lot of accomplishment with a sock. Woo hoo, I turned the heel! And then, woo hoo, I'm done, that didn't take too long. I'm not quite to the second woo hoo, but a little accomplished feeling goes a long way.
Last night I felt that I could revisit Wayne's sweater - only about 4 more inches to go before I start the raglan shaping. Just keep knitting, just keep knitting.
To further my A.D.D., I bought more yarn. To start yet another project. I ordered the Plymouth Tweed I need for Knitty's Twiggy Tweed. It's gorgeous! I ordered it from kpixie and it was cheap - a whole purse for just $12!! So while I was ordering, I looked around the site and found a great kid's learn-to-knit kit. Soon there will be photos of the 'Teach Ali to Knit' process.
