I am trying to keep to my October 16th deadline for finishing Butterfly and Paula but I have noticed the deadline does not inspire me quite as much as I would like it to. Deadlines don’t work without consequences and frankly, I have a hard time disciplining myself. I would love to believe I would take away my yarn budget or something as a consequence but who am I kidding? I won’t. I do what I want. So by bringing up the deadline here I am trying to use one of the few things that can shame me�??that being pride. Plus I want to finish. Really.
I do have new projects I want to do. Like the mimi verylong I have seen on several blogs. Perfect for fall. I also want to do Beth from the Rowan Ribbon Twist book:
Also, I have various hats, scarves, booties, etc. that I need/want to knit for friends and myself. I wish someone would pay me to knit all day. But not to knit for them…for me, all for me. Does this job exist? Anyone want to hire me?
I am almost done with one side of Butterfly. It looks v. v. pretty. I should finish this tonight and will post pictures when I do. I can’t wait to see it blocked. I feel so advanced when I look at it. Okay, how about a mini-deadline…I will finish one side of butterfly and cast on for the frill of the second side tonight. Or else.
Tonight I am looking forward to LOST and knitting after a dinner with my parent’s before they leave town tomorrow. I am not looking forward to them leaving though. But if all goes well�??I am crossing my fingers�??my sisters and I will be visiting them in Hong Kong for Christmas. Can you say, Hong Kong knitting stores? I can. I don’t even care if it is the same stuff I can get here. I just want to answer when someone asks “where did you get that yarn?”…”Hong Kong. I got it Hong Kong.” I am a dork, I know.
