Confessions of a Left-Hand Knitter

Exploring the Possibilities

Updates and Battles

on November 11, 2013

Hey all!! I know it has been awhile. I have been just been busy. Really busy!! I just wanted to give an update on my knitting progress and life. It has been hectic. I started grad school around time of my stash busting ideas (what was I thinking) and needless to say it is hard to find the balance in knitting, blogging, and school. Work… pst who has time to work. lol Kidding I am still working my two jobs. I know, I am insane!!

For clarity of my insanity, in an effort of stash busting I join a KAL for this Dragonflies Sweater. It is going well. I am on to the body and trying to finish before the deadline without losing my mind. I also plan to complete two scarves (for my self) and two hats (gifts), that needs to be completed by January. The sweater by the way is due December 15. I am a crazy person.

Also my Jackie sweater is not going so well. It really is wonky; however, I don’t want to strap it or frog it. I am just going to complete and make it work. My arms are too long, which is hilarious because I am always complaining about sweaters arms being to short. My solution will be to roll up arms. The waist shape, I really regret! I really hope that blocking and losing some weight with help with the fit. But will I make this sweater again… yes, with a lots of modification.

With all the stress, I broke my yarn diet… yep I broke down and brought three skeins of Manos. But it was so worth it… look at them:

I had a little slip… but as you can see it was worth it. I am super excited to knit up these skeins. Now because of these slips, I have push back my stash date to May 2014. So no new yarn until May 2014 (OMG!!!!!). It has to be done, so I can stick to my diet, no matter how pretty the yarn is, I must stick to the diet and remain strong!! I apologize, in advance, if you see less post, I am busy with grad school and knitting. I will take some time this weekend to update my stash busting. Time to get organize and serious! Hope all is well and happy knitting!! 🙂
