I have a feeling this sweater is going to sneak up on me.
With my current work schedule I’m mostly brain dead by the time I get home, so when I sink onto my bed, turn on Lost, and pick up my knitting, I’m mostly zoned out. It’s only the ribbing, anyway. I stop every half hour or so just to make sure I haven’t gone over the number of rows before the next buttonhole but other than that I don’t even register most of what I’m doing.
So I was kind of surprised when I actually looked at it last night and realized I’m more than halfway finished with the ribbing. I still had that “I just started and it’s going to take forever to finish” feeling.
Now, it’s more like, “I’m almost at the birds!” -twitch twitch-
In other news, last night when I was pulling more yarn from the skein, I noticed that I was down to the middly bit where the yarn starts looking small and wrinkly. For some reason this was amusing and worth photographing.
