Well. Now I’ve gone and done it. I started a new project, a baby sweater, as a foil to my current project, which is a huge, never ending swath of mind numbing garter stitch that keeps promising to grow up to become a scarf one day. Look, isn’t it a nice blob?
I needed something more interesting to keep me from falling asleep over the scarf. Also to motivate me to actually work on the scarf (just two more rows and you can have a wee taste of baby sweater! Come on, you know you want to!).
So. Baby sweater starts out charming and sweet as many baby sweaters do. Cast on that teeny number of stitches (did I mention that the scarf gets bigger with each row? yeah.) make some increases, oh look, little sleeves forming, so cute! Oh yay, time to separate the sleeves from the body, which is still not a very large number of stitches right?
Now all I have to do is knit a number of inches down to the hem. In plain stockinette. With just a bit of garter at the edges. How exciting… DAMN! Now I have TWO boring projects on the needles! I don’t think I planned this very well.
Well, I guess the only thing for it is to keep knitting, get them finished up.
Oh, well, hello, where did that come from?
