|I must admit - I'm rather tickled with it so far|
I am working on my first sweater ever for Pokey. It is actually a test knit for another designer and I am loving it! Intimidation did not get the best of me. I saw her prototype and just knew that it would look fabulous on my husband - it was just "him" and I "had" to make it. Enough said, I made up my mind and my nerves would just have to get over it.
I had the perfect yarn (and it has been such a delight that it is getting it's own post tomorrow) and the perfect set up to get the optimal amount of knitting done. I could do the ribbing, no issues or focus delay but when it came to the knitty gritty of it all, I needed a dual distraction. You see, I can't knit in quiet and I can't knit with music if I have to count stitches for a pattern because singing and counting don't mix well in my brain. I can, however, watch/listen to a movie... so that is what I have been doing.
While I love to knit, and always have at least one project working, I apparently knit slower than others. My fellow test knitters are already done with the back shaping and have moved on to the front. I felt slower than usual... it actually was making me sad. Now I know this isn't a race or anything but still - to be last, and by such a huge margin, was a tad much for me. So I set my mind to having little goals... for example, this weekend I would like to finish the back section. Nothing earth shattering but a bit of a push for me all the same.

Isn't it amazing how it all comes together?
