Knitting Schmitting

I am one tired, very burnt out, knitter. I have been trying to get gifts done for people and it is at the point where I don't like knitting anymore. Yes we have reached the breaking point. It's my own fault for not starting gifts sooner. In my defense I didn't come up with this idea until recently. I tried to OD on caffeine but that didn't work. Caffeine makes me sick so it just added to my misery. I tried late nights and early mornings. When a person doesn't get enough beauty rest.....the knitting gets ugly real fast. Through it all.....I knit on. All I can say is "Are we there yet?"

Good Luck Cowl #2 - Plucky Knitter yarn in the colorway: Grand Central Station. My picture is horrible. The yarn is a pretty golden brown color not the dull crap shown here:


Another mystery gift - DONE



I am in the middle of a ruffle scarf with the Malabrigo below. The colorway is Glazed Carrot. Mmmmmmmm. I think I am keeping this one for myself unless a family member claims it. So speak now or forever hold your peace. Some people do not care for orange. I do!

Knitting is no fun when it's no fun!!! If only we had the insight to start gifts in January. I have decided my knits will be birthday gifts for the kids throughout the year instead of trying to get them all finished for Dec 25th. Now I feel much happier and will knit what I want when I want ;-)

I read somewhere...on a blog so I know it's true...that orange is the color of insanity.

The 'glazed carrots' is insanely glorious! Love it.

Even dull crap looks pretty darn good!
