A Revisit + Priority

I just realized I forgot to post a follow-up to the last poll:

poll

Hermione’s Everyday Socks won by a landslide. When you first started voting, it was almost neck and neck. I had happily started the first sock before Halloween. However *sighs*…the cinquain tells it all:

It sits.

Forlornly there.

Where’s the past excitement?

What happened to the desire?

Not now.

Recently when doing my daily reading of blogs, there was a post mentioning Christmas and how much time was left until then. I felt the fog was lifted from my eyes. This haiku represents that wake up call:

Six weeks, five days more,

Third out of six stares at me.

Where’d time go? Quick, knit!

While the 24th seems to loom ahead like a flashing, neon sign, I must kick the holiday knitting into high gear. Her Inner Steel is almost done. I had added five more rounds, started the ribbing, and was on the picot edging when I realized I had too many stitches on my circ. So there was some frogging to go back and redo that decreasing round to get my numbers right.

I have a bit more ribbing to go, the picot edge, and then bind off! Finishing this gift will put me halfway through holiday gifts. I do have to say while I have had setbacks due to my own dumb mistakes, I love working with this Malabrigo Chunky.

Enough blogging. Time to get my knit on.

TGIF. Have a good weekend.

  1. Have fun knitting! My friends and I are getting together for a night of knitting, sewing, embroidery, etc. I can’t do any of these things, but my sister-in-law is going to teach those of us who don’t know how to knit, to knit. We are making baby headbands. I am really excited about it!

  3. Ahh love the haiku! I no longer bound myself to Christmas gift making…so much pressure, although I guess the shark socks count for someone else! That yarn you are using for those socks is so pretty!

  4. I do not knit, but I do belong to a group called “The Hookers” The Happy Hookers (I go with my daughter in law) it’s a group of wonderful women who knit, crochet, and do all kinds of other hand crafts involving yarn and fabric. I’m going to share your blog with them.
