I promised an update on Fishtrap so here we go:
Just past the sleeve/body join. This is 13 skeins of KnitPicks Swish Superwash DK in color Mist.
Unfortunately I have hit a block. All interest has been lost. It may have been the relief of reaching the yoke. It may have been the realization there is already 1600 yds of yarn in this puppy and I’m not near done. It may be the horrendous amount of stitches currently on the needle. It may be that I’m a little peeved that my swap partner has vanished. It may be Nikolai throwing a fit and attempting to pull the needle out. (Go back to Childhood post…. I love my children, I love my children, I love my children… usually!) Know what I think the problem is?
Baseball. The World Series. The Boston Red Sox.
Who wouldn’t root for a team with socks mowed on their infield? Why don’t I have any red sock yarn?! I want to knit RED SOCKS! Not having any red sock yarn means I’ve been rooting around the stash and casting on and dabbling and ripping at an astonishing rate.
I cast the second Spiral Boot Sock (remember those?). I cast on the second Moody Stocking and started writing the pattern. I cast on Dashing. And I’m feeling extra rebellious and casting on Muir tonight.
Denial… it feels sooo good! Won’t you join me?
