It's beautiful and soft, and um...big enough don't you think? She said she had 3 more skeins and was enjoying the pattern so she was going to use them. I don't understand. Why? 3 more skeins of knitting the same thing over and over and over again. It sounds like the seventh circle of hell to me. Then again, I would have done 3 or 4 pattern repeats and started measuring obsessively and bargaining with myself about how big is big enough.
I have the attention span of a gnat. I look forward to the shaping in a sweater or the color changes. I look at an aran sweater and instead of thinking that looks hard, I think I won't be bored. I rarely knit scarfs or blankets for this very reason. I also knit alot of baby and kids clothes because the boring sections of plain knitting are blessedly small. Unfortunately my taste runs towards the plainer more classic pieces, so I often have several items in progress at once. The plainer the project, the longer it will take me to finish it.
My daughter asked me to make a blanket just for her. I dutifully promised and then panicked about how I would manage to complete something a large and as boring as a blanket.
It's blinding, but I'm not bored.
