Tomorrow Never Comes
Clearly no rush to showcase my UFO's of 2006. But by golly, I said I would show them and I will. Here you have Embossed Leaves socks. I was so excited to knit these, and then just fell out of love. Not sure what happened, but I don't think we'll get back together. It's not you...it's me...
Orangina. Pregnancy. The two just didn't go together. As much as I love the pattern and the yarn, a tiny little sleeveless top doesn't go with my gargantuan belly and big ass. I haven't decided yet if I should just knit this a size bigger and wear it this summer anyway (baby will be born by then) or reassign the yarn to a little dress for the bambino. (Color is not at all accurate in this photo.)
I Trekked, stopped for a breather and apparently needed the needles for something else. I love this yarn. I think I enjoyed the pattern. Not sure what happened, but there wasn't enough oomph there to keep me going. I do plan on knitting socks with this yarn. Maybe plain socks.
I was so excited to join the Petals Collection sock club. My first batch of yarn came and I remember I was the first person to post on the knitalong. And never finished the second sock. The first sock seemed a little short, and I guess the idea of reknitting the toe just shrank my mojo. I might finish them. I might not.
I restarted this hat 3 times. I had this grand idea of knitting a fair-isle hat with these muted tones (Morehouse Merino) and for the life of me just couldn't pull the pattern together. I was borrowing from several different patterns and I guess it just hurt my placenta brain. Finally I put it aside. We've had the warmest winter anyway. Seriously, who needs a hat when it's 70 degrees in January?
Yah, who knows what these are. All I know now is as soon as I am done with this post, they will be frogged and put back in the stash!
Now that all my skeletons are out of the closet, my shame on display for all, I feel as though I can move on. Rest in peace, little unfinished knits. I'm outtie!
