My MIL is coming to visit tomorrow. I should be cleaning. But my procrastination goes something like this:
Hum dee dum dee dum...I'll just check my email real quick. Oh look, I left Ravelry up. Just for fun, let me type in "sweaters" and see what everyone is making... OH *bleep*! Add that to the queue, add that to my Amazon shopping cart....I wonder if I already have yarn to make the Central Park Hoodie? Let's visit my favorite yarn store (aka My Stash) oh look, I have 7 skeins of Cascade 220, that's enough for a CPH...
An HOUR goes by. I have been warned that Ravelry is a time suck. It is a yarnaholic's paradise, but for all the time I spend deepening my love for patterns and yarns and project ideas....I could be knitting!
I mean, I could be cleaning!
I could be knitting!
What's the point of having a queue if you don't get to the knitting? The "What if....Someday...." game only works for so long. What I love about knitting is the actually sliding of the needles through really pretty yarn. My Ravelry is getting ahead of my knitting. I feel a panic coming on. I'm so cool, I'm on Ravelry...smoke and mirrors! Hot jeans but no ass! Fancy bra but no boobs!
Next up, a sweater to wear to Rhinebeck. I will not have a lame Flickr mosaic thingy in January to recap the 2 scarves and a baby blanket I made in 2007. I will push on to be the cool, hip, super knitter that I dream to be. *sniff* I believe in actual knitting, and lots of it.
You know, I can keep going. Anything to keep from vacuuming cat hair.
