11 years, 1 week, 1 day

Friday, June 14, 2019

I started this project on June 2, 2008.  Yep.  I worked on it that summer and fall quite a bit taking it to all my kids sporting events.  Then I just became tired of the seed stitch.  Over the years I picked it up a few times.  Maybe knitting one color.   However, for at least the last 6 years it sat in a bag.  Four years ago I moved it to the laundry room thinking if I could see it, then maybe I would work on it.  Occasionally it would catch my eye, but most days my eyes would gaze over it not giving it a thought.
Then one day, I felt as if it were longingly looking at me as if to say, "Please give me some love, Leslie".  So I picked it up, organized the yarn and decided to finish it before starting anything else.
This project sat on that set of US 7 needles for 11 years, 1 week and 1 day.  So grateful to free both the needles and the blanket.  It truly was a labor of love.

Pattern:  Seed Stitch Throw
Yarn:  Classic Elite Four Seasons

  5. Wow! Eleven years - that's commitment! Now I don't feel so bad about a few of my languishing projects.

  6. I don't know about you but I always feel like a weight has been lifted when I finish a project that's been left too long. My daughter just wrote a speech that she gave at her workplace about enduring and then you get a magical moment. It's finished and it's beautiful, and worth waiting 11 years 1 week and 1 day.

  7. Oh wow, what an accomplishment!! It looks beautiful.
