Knitting Deadlines: An Oxymoron

As a former newspaper gal and a freelance writer, I pride myself on my ability to meet a deadline. Thinking back through all my years of writing and even reminiscing about high school (!) I don’t think I missed one due date. For whatever reason, my knitting doesn’t seem to follow the same rules as my writing.

Swatching: What’s all the fuss about?

When you’re in college, you don’t jump right into a 300 or 400 level class. You start in the 100 level class and learn the basics, right?

The Weekend

This weekend I drove up to Lake Tahoe with my family. We didn’t do much of anything, which meant plenty of relaxing and knitting. I ran out of yarn for the sweater I’m designing. I was actually happy about this. It let me put down my work and knit for fun. I made lots of progress on Annie, which I’m making for my mom. My mom got started on Emmery and made huge progress.
