So this is what I do...
I complain all the time about not having enough time to knit, "I can't ever get to my projects! I have millions of beautiful projects waiting for me in bags with needles and patterns! I wish I had more time!" And then, when I get a little bit of time, this is what intrigues me, these little "Korknisse". A pattern I found on Ravelry that was just so cute and enchanting I had to put everything else aside and make one of these. I don't even know what it is or what it is used for but I have visions of millions of these little people in all different colors.
I will admit, though, that I did settle down and seriously focus on finishing the purple cabled vest, all the pieces are done and I am working on the sleeve edgings now. It looks great, very vogue,
I think I love it. Of course all of us knitters bemoan the moment of truth when we actually finish the garment, steam it out, shrug it on and take that first brutal true-life look at what your hard work has wrought. This hobby forces me to understand that it is the process, not the product that reaps the rewards. So o n to my next project...
