Knitwhim Diaries 15 : Doomsday

Hey guys! Here is a new episode! Sorry the audio is funky, I have to talk to my tech consultant and try to trouble shoot what happened. Hopefully it's not too distracting :)

Knitwhim Episode 13 : The World May Be Ending

Hello everyone!  Pardon the delay, (and my bad hair! That's why I'm wearing a hat! )
I've had a weird week of ice, snow, and earthquakes!

Fortunately not being able to go to work means lots of knitting and spinning!

Overwhelmed WIP

Dear Blog,

Lately I felt as if I have an ungodly number of works in progress - 7 at current count - for me that's not even an abnormal number, but it just suddenly feels so humongous and daunting. I feel as if there is no way I could ever possibly finish them all, and I'm starting to feel frustrated and impatient.  Normally I'm a 'process' knitter which means that I just enjoy knitting for the sake of knitting - the finished object is just a neat bonus. But lately I've been the opposite. I just want things DONE.

So now I'm focusing on one project at a time, trying to knock each one out in turn. I'm focusing mostly the star blanket - not pictured, it's just a blob of blue and white ;) -
Trying to finish it so I can check it off the list and move on down the line. That saying, since I finished the Tenta Cowl a few weeks ago, I have ben woefully without a lace project, so I started a new one  -___-;;







I know! What was I thinking?  But I bought this yarn, specifically for this pattern last year during the Atlanta Shop Hop, and I've been dreaming about casting it on for MONTHS. I finally caved. The Pattern is Ictis by boo knits. The yarn is DIK Wisp in the Shy colorway.


Cheers! Don't forget to visit Tami's for more WIPs :)
