A moment of irritation
Tuesday, October 9, 2007
So lately, it seems every time I take the leap and jump into something. I fall on my rump. I tried the bag pattern that Jen help me altered but it turned out wonky. The sides just don't make sense, it calls for increases on one side and not on the other.. Are they trying to make it look lopsided. So I junked it, tried a new pattern. I ended up trying my own thing. There were a couple of points I didn't take into account but I had already seamed it. So whilst trying to remove the seam. The yarn breaks and there goes the better part of the bag in one tug. I still have a little while to get this bag together. The due date for the HSKS swap is the 31st. I wanted to get it done though so I can start on my other upteenth projects.

Here's the to knit list:

1. Fingerless Gloves for Grim's Sister
2. Fingerless Gloves for Grim
3. Tree Sweater for the SKC KAL
4. Baby Blanket

5. Baby Dress
6. Baby Bell Bottoms
7. Brother's Fingerless Gloves

How the hell am I supposed to even get half these done if I keep having to rip everything apart. First the baby blanket, then bag one, then bag two.. Grrr. Sorry.. Bad day. Everything will be better tomorrow.

In the mean time, look at this picture of me and my baby girl!

    Oh looks like my bad day jumped over to you! You'll get it. What bag pattern were you having issues with? Let me know if I can help at all. I hope you get lots of knitting done!

    take a day off. That helps me like nothing else. Then start with the smallest thing, get it done quickly and feel good about it. It'll help. So will playing video games and killing off a bunch of zombies. :D

    Love your picture. I think Teresa has the best idea and chocolate always helps.

    Awwww what an adorable kitty. Ok... you are definitely overwhelming yourself... like someone else said start with the easy projects and before you know it you will be whipping through of projects and bad days will be a thing of the past :0

    Hey sweetie! Sorry to read that you are having a spell of bad knitting mojo. I completely understand the feeling of being overwhelmed by TOO MANY PROJECTS. I'm in the same boat. I just try to focus on one project at a time (okay, sometimes two) and get through them without thinking about the others looming on the horizon. Wine helps. Also, if I work on one project specifically for a long period of time (8 hours or more), I put it aside and do 2-4 rows of another project as a break. That way, I know I've made some major headway on one project and the other project isn't languishing in my UFO pile, calling to me to be knit on. Hang in there, sweetie. I'll be thinking happy thoughts for you. Btw, in my next blog post, I'll be talking about some movies that I think you may like so check in on me in a bit, when I finally get a chance to do a proper blog post. :)

    Followed you here from Elabeth's blog. I have a strangely similar knit to-do list as well. I think it is in the knitting gene.
