Now that I have the prospect of free time for knitting, I must come to grips with the fact that I have only one project on the needles. It’s boring. It’s endless. And since I can’t make up my mind about what to knit next, if I want to knit at all I have to power through and finish this.
Last weekend I took both shawls – the finished green one (now many years old and needing a good wash and block) and the not-yet-finished gold one – and laid them out on the grass, with the gold overlapping the green. Pretty, huh? I love how neat the edge on the gold shawl is – that’s the actual edge, not a photo-shopped splice.
I was trying to get a photo which would show how much remained to be knit. It turned out to be a pretty difficult thing to get in one shot; here’s the best I could do (the angle distorts everything):
I’ve been making steady progress all week so it’s even closer now. I just added in the last ball of yarn!!!!! I think I will be done within a week or so, and then a terrible problem emerges. What next? I am suffering from over choice. There are so many gorgeous patterns out there begging to be knit that I have descended into a pattern paralysis, so to speak. While I remain in this state of indecision, I will keep on ribbing.
Have a good weekend everyone!
