I am snooze-button knitting – that eternal round of ‘just 5 more minutes…’, which invariably leads to ‘I’m LATE!!’
Case in point – I am knitting while I wait for the camera to turn up on my desktop, while I wait for Flickr to upload my photo, while I wait for the page to load, even though I need to leave the house in 17 minutes if I’m going to get today’s quota of blackcurrants picked before dinner…
And what am I knitting?
Well I’m stash busting on a GRAND scale, and knitting this:
The Knitted Ruana from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle.
And here is the portion of my stash:
So many lovely colours to play with, and it’s only 236st a row, so it’s not even as if they take that long. And once you get to the end, because the tassles are made as you go, there is always yarn to cut, and choose and re-join, so the end of a row isn’t really the end…
And since I have 1hr of Tour de France highlights to watch every evening for the next three weeks, (not even including extra weekend coverage), I think this basket of yarn will get well used. 🙂
