I’m working away on my socks. I’ve decided to change the name to Juniper socks, rather than Spruce socks, because the stitch pattern makes me think more of a Juniper bush than an evergreen tree. I’m just about to start the gusset, so I ran a lifeline just in case the fit is off.
What is it that makes us crafters abandon one project in favor of another? Boredom? Insurmountable problems? Short attention span?
I started my Smaug Shawl many months ago. But it was hard, so I moved on (Also, Christmas presents).
I started my Spruce Socks a few weeks ago. But then I found the Smaug Shawl, and it was magically easier than it used to be.
But now the rows on the Smaug Shawl are really, really long (320 stitches). Getting across a row is an accomplishment, and I’m starting to get a little bored… even though it is silk.
Also the fabulous gals over at Mason Dixon Knitting are hosting a one-sock Knit-a-long. Do I join? Do I stick firmly to my shawl? Do I work on the Spruce socks, or do I dig out some new sock yarn and start a different pair?
Too many choices….
P.S. A friend gave me some new fabric recently. I might have accidentally started cutting out a tank top.
