the Urban Lazy Girl
Rosemary made ALL KINDS of knitty progress this week. Me, well...I did finish knitting the kinky scarf, though I haven't weaved in yarn ends. Me and those damn yarn ends. I don't even want to do it when there are only two and that's all that separates me from a finished object. That and the blocking, I mean. Still gotta block. And I haven't done that because (horror of horrors) I don't own any straight pins, which apparently you need to keep lace in the right shape. A crafty blogger who doesn't own straight pins? Who's ever heard of such a thing?
I think two things have got me in a knitting funk lately. All the Christmas knitting kind of did me in. And now that I'm trying to use up previously purchased yarn so that I don't spend all the aforementioned allowance money at SWAK, I'm not very excited about any of my stash. I seem to only want NEW yarn!
Big Goal for the Lazy Knitta: Buy some straight pins this weekend and get this dang thing blocked already!
I think a new yarn aquisition might not be a bad thing. Sorta sparks the fire a little ya know?
