More KO or Going crazy the quick way . . .

Okay, Okay, on the main, my sweater is coming along well. The main problem is that (well, there are more than one) I design by the seat of my pants, so to speak, as my bum can't knit. This particular way of designing has benefits, but also serious drawbacks. Namely, ripping. Frogging. Or as I see it, total annihilation of 6 hours. On the good side, I am at the waist, on the bad side, I have been at the waist 3 times now. AAARGH! I still have the bottom and sleeves and any knitted flowers left to knit.

Another big problem is that other projects are calling to me. Damned sirens is what they are. (look at me, I am so beautiful, so deserving. What could be the harm in just casting me on? Oh how about another row? Hey look at that beautiful shrug in deco ribbon - that couldn't take too long, you started it before the olympics. How about just a few rows? Or what about that cropped cardi you are designing? Thats so soft . . . Knit in Moda Dea Dream thats just so fun. It's white and you know, white goes with everything. . . And you just bought that deco ribbon for the deco stardust tunic. You chose such cool colors. Deco Stardust ribbon in lapis blue for the top, and deco ribbon in scuba Dive for the bottom part. How useful will that be? I mean, it's almost spring here in TX. and you are knitting an alpaca sweater!!!

How about that wonderful sweater you were designing during the olympic opening ceremonies (before you figured out about the 7 hour time lapse between here and Torino) the one in Knitpicks Merino Style in color Tide Pool, such a cool turquoise and the fun of finding out that the merino style knits so great doubled and your idea of designing a sweater even fun fur haters can't hate (fun fur in citrus that goes just so charmingly, so tropicali, so springtime . . . or why aren't you finishing the Christmas (yes read that again, Christmas) presents.

Well, you gorgeous projects you SHUT UP! You just have to WAIT. It's only (gasp) 4 more days. Calm it - Will ya PLEASE!
