I hate waiting

Every time I finish a knitted project and bind off the last stitch, I always get super excited to put it on and parade it around. It’s not usually until five minutes later that I remember that it still needs to be blocked and possibly have some ends woven in and maybe a few buttons sewn on. In short, I won’t be able to wear it for at least two to three days.

Anyway, the reason I’m whining is because this lovely pile of cuddliness is laid out flat in the corner of my apartment and shows no signs of being dry before the end of the weekend. And yes, I have been checking almost hourly.

On the bright side, look at these gorgeous buttons I found! Everything they had was either too plasticky or too manufactured-looking or they only had one left, and then the guy at the store whipped out these ones and they were perfect!

On a completely unrelated note, I was making corn chowder for the first time yesterday and for some reason decided to add chopped celery.

Absolutely terrible idea. The flavor didn’t go with the rest of the soup at all.

So I spent twenty minutes plucking out every single bit of celery from the soup.

Yes, I’m weird. But the soup was infinitely better afterwards.

  1. yah…..celery can be a very discordant element in a smooth and bland soup. you are really a soupie girl aren’t you…Can you help your sweater along with your hair drier?? or would you get shrinkage? your sweater is so gorgeous and I heard on the news that you may be getting weekend snow…put away your flip flops. dear. love from your only grandmother.

    1. I think I could! I’d be too scared to throw it in the dryer but I think I’d have enough control with a hair dryer to prevent felting/shrinkage.

      Thanks! I realllly hope you’re right! I’ve been checking weather.com multiple times a day and they keep changing when it’s supposedly going to snow. Boo. Love you too!

  2. Very beautiful sweater! I agree with you about the buttons. If I’m not crunched for time I love to order wooden buttons off Etsy. I even found some cool buttons made of shed antlers at a gun show my boyfriend dragged me to.
