I expect my relationships with hubby, spawn, my parents, siblings, and friends to morph over time. But I never....never....expected my relationship with yarn to change. I would only work on one or two projects at a time. I would devote equal attention to them and not start anything else until one was done.
Suddenly, there are WIPS staring me in the face, accusing me of startitis and feeling neglected. I barely know myself anymore. *sob*
Ok, enough of the dramatics, haha.
I'm just forgetful. I start something, put it away for whatever reason, and forget about it. Seems like I've done this a lot lately and there are definitely a handful of projects that need some TLC.
Like the big baby I am, I decided to tackle the easy ones first. This is the preemie granny square blanket I started in May. Yeah...MAY! Its only 24"x 24" inches, so I feel like a schmuck that it sat there so long.
The yarn is Joann Rainbow Sensations and the green is Caron pounder. Using a K hook, I should have finished this in a few days or so. It'll be on its way to a NICU sometime this week.
Another lonely WIP was this electric blue scarf. Kinda makes me want to sing the Electric Slide**. Ok, ok I don't want to sing to it, I want to dance to it. Who doesn't love crappy line dances?
Anyway, I started this garter stitch scarf awhile ago. Knitting has been pretty scarce around here lately, so I needed something simple to practice getting my tension right.
I used size 10 needles and Chenille Thick & Quick, which makes it a fairly quick knit if you work on it consistently. Which I didn't (bet you knew that already), so it took me forever.
Doesn't matter though, because I love it. Its soft, warm and super squishy. Have a closer look. See?
