february 18, 2008
I've been working on the collar to elizabeth. Which seems like a very long, very boring, k1p1 scarf. It seems a little like torture. I am very opposed to knitting feeling like torture.
I've decided to knit on it as much as I can this weekend and then start something new. I like that plan.
Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.

  1. Oh no, knit torture sounds like a terrible thing. You need a quick gratuity knit to lift your spirits. May I recommend a pair of Toast? They always lift my knitting mood.

    Have a great weekend Leslie.

  3. I suggest knitting a few rows between baking batches of your awesome chocolate chips cookies. That way there's always something sweet at the end of the row.

  5. I'm sure you'll make the process joyful!

  6. I find that sometimes the torturous knits are the most rewarding in the end. Because, simple is better. But... simple is boring. Oh well. When it comes down to it, there is no bad knitting. Happy Weekend!

  7. I'm intrigued to see how Elizabeth turns out... I'm struggling to finish a project that is knitted on circular needles, I keep going around and around but it never seems to get any closer to being finished!
    Have a great weekend.

  11. I've got a very satisfying knitting weekend planned - knitting a baby cardigan. Even in 4ply, it's such a speedy project that it always makes me feel like a super expert, super speedy knitter.

    Good luck with your K1 P1 collar!

  12. I,ve just finished some speedy baby mits. I have a longish project to start tomorrow but I'm already planning my shorter projects along side. Like the yarn colour for Elizabeth - it will get there in the end.

  21. I am totally opposed to knitting feeling like torture too (which may explain the large number of unfinished scarves that I have...)

    I hope your next knit is filled with much pleasure and joy!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is one of the reasons why my business is successful. I'm sure if you put it aside for a week it will start begging you to finish it. I also like the idea of doing it while watching a good movie.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Gah! Knit torture! Maybe read whilst knitting?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh I can understand you... when knitting something too long... it never last! So, in these cases, I have about 2 or 3 projects started in the same time ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I hate it when I'm at that point in a project. I've been in a funk lately and finding things that don't piss me off has been hard!

  26. I don't like knitting torture, but sometimes the type of garment I fell in love with is just not exciting to knit. Poor knit. It's not its fault that it is dull.
