I have been busy lately. I am doing yet another knitting competition. Yeah, I know I do a lot of them. Anyway, this one is tied to the Olympics. I don't really care about getting a medal, I just want to finish.
I am making a log cabin blanket. I started this blanket in October, worked on it for about 2 weeks, loving how the colors came together. Then, I got tired of it. I put it in the bag and let it rest. I would pull it out periodically, as there is a deadline for finishing, it is a baby present. But, basically, this project was hibernating, because it was beginning to become a much bigger project than I originally imagined.
When the Ravelympics came along, I thought perfect, this will motivate me to finish this massive undertaking I have started. So, I have knit furiously day and night on this thing. I have finished all the colored pieces, and am not about to start the border. I felt that some sort of celebration was due, since I finished some part of this project. So, YEAH ME!! I need cheer-paca to come on by and join me.
On Monday, when I was slightly ahead of schedule, I felt that I could also bust out a stuffed animal for this friend. So I signed up for that too... What was I crazy? I still have the boarder to finish and now a hippo? I am starting to wonder what they do to team members who sign up for more stuff than they can ever finish in a timely manner? Is there a flogging or a time out, do they take your needles away?
I forgot, when I committed to do more, that I had a Party on Thursday and an outing on Friday. That basically I was losing two days due to social commitments, that going into Saturday I would be behind. So, I am not a full two days behind, I wonder if this will be possible. But, at least I am done with the color part of this... all that is left, is one simple border. I can do it, yes I can. Ok, Cheer-paca, take over:
Kay-en- eye-tee what's that spell, knit!
