This is the third finished project to come out of my experiment with monogamy. It may also be the last for now, since the Xmas knitting list contains a few pairs of socks, which I know from experience I just can’t work on non-stop for the time it takes to knit a whole pair. So, there will most likely be a sock in my purse and one other project for my special evening couch time.
I’ve actually been a bit surprised by how good this little experiment has made me feel about myself, though. It seems like such a small thing, but it’s made me more focused and made me feel like I knit much faster than I thought I did (maybe more than I do, it just usually takes me so long to finish things). It’s made me feel like the endless list of things I want to make is manageable. Most importantly, it’s made me confident that the next sweater I start (for me! my own design!) will not take me seven months.
Soon to come: Action shots of the drop-stitch scarf, and perhaps a tale of the dyeing odyssey I hope to undertake this weekend.
