This morning I woke up wanting to knit. Those blue socks . . they’re really bugging me. I want to finish them so I can start something else but I’m not enjoying knitting them so I don’t finish them. I’m going to get back to knitting on them as soon as I finish this post. I thought about sitting and knitting for an hour this morning before going to the sewing room but then decided to go sew and stop sewing early and come back to the house and knit.
So, off to the sewing room I went. I sewed all the half square triangles and triangles into the rows for the baskets.
My goal was to get 5 blocks made and then I could go knit. About the time I had convinced myself to stick with the sewing, the phone in the sewing room rang and it was the mail lady and she had a package so I ran down to the gate to meet her and sure enough, it was from The Loopy Ewe.
I opened the box, fondled the yarn and convinced myself to get those 5 blocks finished. Before I knew it, I had all 17 of them done!
How’s that for sticking with the plan? Now I’m going to knit til bed time and tomorrow . . I may sit in the recliner and knit all day if it means getting that blue sock finished. Or, I may go sew. Who knows what I’ll decide when I wake up in the morning. One thing for sure, it’s really nice to be able to wake up and do something that I love doing . . whether that might be knitting or sewing!
