Somehow, I am Stuck on Slow...

You know how some projects just fly by, just blink and they are done? Well, this isn't one of them. The pattern is another one from Wildhorse Farm Designs, and it is the Berry Basket Socks pattern. It is turning out to be really nice, and I like the colorway I am working with (Baby Blues). I am knitting it with Panda Cotton, which I quite enjoy, but this project is moving at the speed of molasses.
Incidentally, Panda Cotton is a bit more difficult to bead than wool, but not too tough.

I just can't seem to get in the groove for this project. I have definitely put the time in on it, and it just isn't coming together the way I would like.




The progress on this has been so slow that even my knitting supervisor came to see if she could suggest something...

















Incidentally, I have plans! This is not the time to daudle! I have the impending shawl (Clementine Shawlette) to revive, and I have already wound the yarn for that. Also, I need to knit something for a girlfriend's birthday in August, although I have not a clue what that will be. Hmmm, maybe a nice shawl...


It is now June, and CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!! Just last weekend, I had the idea that each one of my nieces should have an heirloom Christmas stocking. Where the top row of holly is, just under the ribbing, the pattern allows for a name to be placed there, which I probably will do. This whole heirloom stocking idea might have been better reserved for February or March... At any rate, I bought the pattern from a LYS, and ordered the yarn from Knit Picks. However, I may only knit one a year as they look somewhat involved.


Time's a wastin' - off to knit.

*grinding teeth* I'll help!!! Whine, whimper, moan. Ahem. Anyway, the sock looks lovely, and I'm sure you'll have it done in no time. You're definitely right about starting Christmas projects earlier. Here I thought I was going to have all this lag time after I finished the August baby blanket....not anymore!!!
What a beautiful, beautiful knitting supervisor! I adore Siamese; especially seal points....See you!
