I am knitting frantically on the vest. Each row completed is one closer to finish. Not saying it is a race, but I do feel compelled to finish this – and soon! I want to see if what is in my mind’s eye will be what the finished product looks like.
I feel a bit like Kramer from Seinfeld – remember the boxers or briefs episode? Well…. I am feeling a bit like Kramer right now and soon we will find out if I can come sliding in here on Monday letting you all know that I am “lovin’ every minute of it”!
I am not an adventurous knitter – oh, I knit things that are adventurous, but I knit them as the pattern tells me to. With little or no variation. Yep, I am an “in the box” kind of knitter.
That is strange, because if you know me at all – you’d say that I was an “out of the box” kind of person.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I will pick up an extra stitch or two from the heel flap when I am making socks (to get rid of the hole, right?) and an extra stitch or two when knitting mittens (same hole!). But, I don’t vary much more than that from a designer’s pattern. I figure that they know immensely more than I do – especially about knitting!
I mean, truthfully gentle readers, I just figured out gauge swatches! I know – duh!
And, there is still all the mystery of positive and negative ease.
So, I am knitting away on this vest – from this picture I have in my mind… scary stuff, I am telling you.
It is a good thing I am a process knitter – rather than a product knitter.
That way if I have to head to the Frog Pond I won’t be devastated!
Okay – that is enough of a break for me – back to the needles!
