As it turns out, I like knitting better than blogging.
And so given limited free time, I knit rather than blog.
I have extremely limited free time for the next while.
But I do like blogging.
So I have a proposition for you.
I will continue knitting. ("Doi," as the kids say. Or is it "Doy?")
I will continue blogging.
But I won't be including nearly as many pesky words in my blog entries, at least not for the next while.
And although I will continue working away on Dulaan 2007, I will not be slavish about blogging about it on Wednesdays and only on Wednesdays.
In this new spirit:
I want to start this:
(Zippered, hooded baby sweater by Dale of Norway.)
But I still have this:
(That mythical Baby Norgi
I keep talking about, going to Dulaan 2007. Won't divert it to the Strategic Baby Knits Reserves for three reasons: 1.) Dry clean only alpaca / merino yarn. 2.) Colorwork (my first) puckers more than a bit. 3.) Am not utterly convinced that the neck measurements are big enough, and don't want to give a baby I know an ill-fitting sweater. (It is a bit of a dilemma. Because I also feel badly about giving a young'un I don't
know a potentially ill-fitting sweater. But I'm not utterly convinced it won't
fit, either. And given that, Dulaan 2007 seems a better idea than tossing the thing.) )
I think there is some rule about not having more than one outstanding steek-sweater to cut.
But I still don't want to drag out that dang sewing machine. So, by hand it will be.
(Did I say fewer words? Damn.)
