You have to be creative, you have to be somewhat organized, stay on top of things, say stuff that is funny and witty....
Lately I've kinda sucked at that stuff.
I signed up for the Amazing Lace - but when I had to rip my project out for the third (I think) time I kind of gave up.... at the moment I am not even positive where that yarn is! :(
Then I started working on a dress for my friend's daughter's second birthday. The birthday has now came and went - I have only ripped back five or six times on the dress - but it still isn't done. Half is - but when I had to go through the anguish of weaving in maybe sixty ends on that side it greatly decreased my motivation.
When I was out of town I bought some lovely yarn to make socks - I tried to do two socks on two circular needles - tried it two or three times... ended up with a tangled mess... Still haven't Goggled about how to do that one....
And then I tried to make myself a lovely pair of socks out of my mom's opal yarn. I have one finished... it is a lovely shade of purple... but it is HUGE. It fits my boyfriend's foot - but it is so - purple - and I so wanted it to be for me.... not quite sure what to do about that yet.
On a positive note last night I started a ballband dishcloth from Mason Dixon Knitting. I love it! It is quick and fun and cute! I WILL finish it!
And I am trying to decide if I should do Secret Pal 9 - I really want to but I am fearful after my last two experiences - maybe the third time would be a charm????
