Today's prompt is:
Your Knitting Or Crochet Hero 3KCBWDAY3
I have been inspired by many people. As you may or may not have noticed I don't write a lot on this blog, it's mostly short entries with pictures. There is a reason for this: I don't have the attention span to read long blog posts, so I assume that most others also do not, and thus usually stick to short posts with pictures.
So I'm going to go ahead and do the Wild Card prompt today, which is: your perfect knitting (crafting) day 3KCBWWC
I've received a lot of really nice comments about my post yesterday, so I really feel the pressure to be amusing all week long. Thanks for the confidence-boosting comments, and the soul-crushing pressure...
Without further ado, here's how my perfect knitting day would start:
Every good knitting day should start with some nice yarn. This is Lotus Yarns 100% merino wool: Winter Sun.
Ohh and aah over yarn.
Ponder over all the possibilities...
Eureka! A sweater!
Excitedly cast on
30 minutes later... (Hey, the prompt said perfect didn't it?)
Boy that was a lot of work... I should try it on!
NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! It doesn't fit! WHY DIDN'T I SWATCH FIRST?!?!
OH YEAH?!? WE'LL SEE WHO'S BOSS NOW SWEATER!
Special thanks to my patient husband Brian for taking these photos.
No sweaters were harmed in the making of this post. The featured sweater is a Freddie Krueger sweater that I started in August 2011 for Brian, and is still waiting to be finished... but that's another story.
