Warning – I’m going to post a picture here that some of you may find disturbing. Proceed at your own risk!
Hmm, maybe I should have put more space there…
Well, anyway, that was me last night. Josh did talk me into chilling the fuck out and knitting for a little while. It actually felt pretty nice. I was concerned that I’d have trouble because of the cut on my finger, but since I had a band-aid on still it wasn’t a problem. This is what I’m working on…
If you were with me back when I used to knit on a more regular basis you might recognize this as the start of my very favorite washcloth pattern. This is the only kind of washcloth Josh and I use in the shower, they’re phenomenal. The yarn is Lily & Cream 100% cotton and the needles are size 7 bamboo. The pattern can be found here, and I do it exactly as specified. When I’m on top of my game I can crank one of these out in a little more than an hour.
Do not even ask how long this is taking me.
At any rate, Josh and I arrived at a bit of a compromise last night. I’m going to keep a running list of the projects I’d like to do around the house, with the understanding that I will NOT try to do everything at the same time. I’ll do a little every day, but then I have to spend some time knitting or reading or making stupid pictures in Photoshop – something relaxing. It actually sounds like a nice idea.
In closing, I offer this gem. Have a good day, kids.
