Indecision 2010

I feel as though I am sunk in knitting indecision right now.  I still have not decided on what project I am going to knit for my Knitting Olympics project.  I know that I should be swatching right about now to ensure that the yarn I have will work for the project, but I just cannot decide!  I know it will not be knit with something I spun myself like I had originally thought.  I still have 1/3 of this beautiful superwash merino to spin before I can ply it and I just don’t see it happening in the next two weeks.  The green and brown corridale that I showed you in a previous post hasn’t made it’s way off the spindle yet. 

This is what I do know:

  • I need to weave in the ends and photograph a baby bootie and cap set for our friend Darla’s new baby.  (and mail it)
  • I need to finish up another baby sweater and mail it off. 
  • I am itching to knit something for myself for a change.
  • My littlest one needs a new pair of mittens and I’ve decided to design my own pair for her.  I’m mostly finished with the first mitten.
  • Whatever I knit for the Knitting Olympics will be sleeveless – it’s all I can reasonably expect to get done in the alloted time. 
  • I’m very taken by the Slinky Rib top from Custom Knits (Free Pattern here)
  • I am quite open to any ideas for a vest/sleeveless top pattern that anyone might have. 

Luckily I am taking off this weekend for a scrapbooking weekend with my older sister.  I’m suspecting that I’ll spend more time knitting than I will scrapbooking.  My laptop is so slow that I usually get a good amount of knitting done while I’m waiting for the scrapbook page elements to load. 

Lastly, I thought I should also answer some questions that have come up in the comments.

  • I have taken the liberty of deleting a few comments that do not seem to belong here.  I hope I don’t offend anyone, but I’m deleting the ones that don’t appear to be written by a human.  Nope, I don’t really need your ringtone, free or otherwise and I do not need to meet any nice women. 
  • I do not have any Sesame Street character sweater patterns.  My grandma seemed to have steered clear of that fashion trend, although she does have a few sweaters from the 70’s that are downright crazy.  Knittymuggins is right, something goofy was going on in the 70’s when it came to clothing.  (Although one could probably say the same about the 80’s). 
  • The bread recipe that I have talked about (I love it!) is actually from Artisan Breads in Five Minutes a Day and can be found on, Barnes and Noble or at a local bookstore.  I noticed that I misspelled the book title and it caused some confusion.

  1. I like the girly colors of that fiber! Very Valentine’s Day! I think that I am going to put your girls to work on a Valentine’s project this weekend. I will have to google some ideas for them!


  2. I was just thrilled to see the vintage books from your Grandmother. I learned how to knit waaaayy back in 1968 in grade school using an Nell Armstrong book of my mother’s. I still use a baby blanket pattern for every newborn in our family. The baby my mother knit one for is now retired and on Social Security so it just proves that babies and knitting are timeless! Just found your blog and enjoy it very much.
