Being rather pleased with myself for having finished the left front of my leaf cardigan, I started reading how to join the pieces together. And that is when I realized....................I was just not doing it right. By all accounts it isn't a big deal, I am simply making the pattern with the sleeves, rather than the sleeveless (rather, very short sleeve) one that I wanted to make. I had a slight niggling about it early on which I simply forgot in my exuberance to get it going. Sigh. This cardigan is in the time out corner. I have to figure out whether I want to finish it as it is, or tear it out and start all over again. At the end of the day I feel I should make the one I wanted, which means..................well let's just not talk about it.
So after I found a place to stash the cardi where I cannot look at it for a few days (or weeks if I'm honest) I immediately went onto Ravelry to see what else I could cast on. Yes, I have a serious problem. Because you are probably not forgetting that I am also working on:
* a chubby chirp
* a blanket
* a secret gift for someone
* a pair of kids socks--again, to be fair, I do not think I'll finish these. It recently occurred to me that I made a Barbie dress out of the yarn and I don't think I'll have enough for two socks. No big deal, I wasn't feeling the love with these anyway.
Instead of casting on I've used all my willpower to work on the projects I already have on the go. I'll have to wait a wee while for something new. I'm almost done with my Chubby Chirp, here are all his little pieces. Someone was desperate to be in the picture. Please ignore her outfit--we were cleaning out the wardrobe for spring and she has............interesting taste!!
Sorry for a text heavy, picture light post. Here's where I'm sharing the creative joy:
