Coming Clean

Time to come clean….

Remember this?

Yep this if Florelei shawl in Cascade Sunseeker yarn or my Stashbustin’ #22. I started this waaaay back here. Then I filled you in my all my progress here.

Well, I feel obligated to inform you that it still looks like this. This pattern is great but represents a serious skills challenge for this shawl chart newbie. This summer has just been so packed with fun and activity I haven’t had the time nor inclination to sit back down with this. And now I’m in the throws of knitting for fall craft fairs for the next three months.

So in all honestly, I am going to let this project hibernate in my craft room. Right on top of my yarn cabinets where I can clearly see it. And come this winter when the snow is falling softly outside I will pull this project out and kick it’s shawl behind. I don’t care that it’s a shawl and I should be making sweaters. I know that I need some fortitude and peace to work this project out. And so it will have to be.

Have you ever had to put a project in long term time out?

  1. I have a baby blanket that has been in time out since May – bad baby blanket! šŸ˜‰
    I like the idea of concentrating on you harder (more complicated?) knitting in the still of winter. Does anything improve knitting like snow and cold wheater?

  3. My sweater is still on an extended hibernation from the beginning of the summer. I’m also waiting until after Christmas to tackle it again, and I agree with Rachel – winter knitting is just so much better (:
