Just Give It Up or Suck It Up

A week or so ago, I found a really good knitting tip here. What could I apply this to? Why, that *&%#@! lace top I have not been working on. It's part difficult pattern directions (what does Erika Knight have against charts?!?) and part difficult yarn (Kidsilk Haze). I have come to the conclusion that this project is never going to be completed, so daughter dear, would you like a nice shawl instead? We will discuss.

But what about those UFOs one does not want to give up on? I think it is time to suck it up and commit to finishing these. Many of them are bags in need of linings. Some of them just need a button or some ends woven in or blocking. Some need only to be seamed. I'm thinking these are perfect for Sunday morning, while doing laundry. One per week. I think I can handle that.

And wrapping up some UFOs will also give me something to show because not much real knitting is going on. If it weren't for meetings at work, there would be no knitting going on. Can't help it - this is the time of year for playing in the dirt.

I envy you being able to knit in the car. I would be car sick before I got out of the driveway!

I was surprised to see you have a link to a yarn shop in Wolcottville, IN. We lived there on Big Long Lake the year that I graduated. My Mom & Dad were both from Fort Wayne and they wanted to be closer to home. We only stayed a year. It was a beautiful place but too isolated for a 17 year old. Of course it may not be as isolated now as it was in 1984.
