Oh, honestly. Sometimes…

Sometimes none of your projects are working. All at the same time.

This one — well, I lost the notes for the first sock, and I didn't follow the pattern at all, so I've had to re-engineer sock #1 (knit 4 years ago) as I go. And I'm lazy.

This one looks done, but actually I knit two different lengths so I could find out which one fit the recipient. Alas, the one with the lifeline is the one that fits. So I just have to thread through some needles and rip back and lengthen the one on top. And I'm lazy.



One project I can't find at the moment.

One (unphotographed) piece is off by one stitch, and I need to figure out why.

So is this one.


One (also unphotographed) needs a whole bunch of math before I start the arms.

There's nothing actually wrong with this one, but you know how lace is -- you just can't work on it during all activities. And frankly, it'll look like a pile of purple vomit until it's done.


So. You know how it is. I cast on this:



Frankly I don't think the color combo's working that well.

It must be something going around. I'm churning through bags of yarn, casting on, stopping, trying another project, blah, blah, blah. Where is my knitting mojo? Anyone seen it? Drop it in a mailbox, postage prepaid! Reward!

I think those one stitches randomly go where all the teaspoons seem to go - some other dimension :)

I think 'lazy' actually means 'clever shortcut' ;-)
