Progress

On the Clapotis. Pez, don't kill yourself making room for this on your list. I like the look of it but it is as boring as, I don't know, a WARSHRAG. But it doesn't go nearly as fast, because this sucker is looooooooooong. Part of the problem is that I am typically a monogamous knitter, and won't start on anything new unless I am done with the last. But this project may be the trend-breaker, as I am bored silly by it. This is good for stuffing into your bag and toting with you for some mindless knitting while you are waiting at the doctor's office, or on the playground, or waiting at the DMV. Or in purgatory, where you might actually find the time to finish it.

I am in the section where you are supposed to start dropping rows. It's nice to see some progress, but in this section there are 12 repeats. Kill me now.

In other news, I got myself a nice little tin at Borders the other day to hold my knitting supplies. I used to use a bag, but everyting was always collecting at the bottom and I was always dumping the contents out to find something. This 3.99 tin solved that problem. It holds everything and has a official sounding "click" when you close it. Very comforting.

Doesn't everything look all tucked in and ready for bed? Hope y'all are having a nice Memorial Day weekend.

I feel your pain. It's gorgeous, but I think I'd kill myself. Think you'll finish it?

I have to finish it. But luckily my mom's birthday isn't until October. I could do one row a day until it's done and still have plenty of time to send it. LOL

It looks beautiful, but when I checked out the pattern - I knew it would take me a loooong time to finish something like that. At least you have until October.

Love the new tin - good idea.

hmmm- hope you can get through it and at least enjoy some quiet time while knitting it. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if you learned to read while knitting?

I like the tin! I have an Altoids tin that I keep little things in, but I should get a bigger one to hold more, I think. Yours is pretty. :)
