If you know me, you’ll know one of my most attractive and heart-warming traits is my obsessive nature. My friends would disagree, but hey, they’re not the ones writing. Pah.
But anyway, I do indeed get obsessed with things I like. And boy, do I love knitting. I love the repetition, the endless hours watching whatever I’m making grow and the yarn getting smaller, until I can bind off and, standing on top of a chair, yell “I’m the Queen of Knitted Garments!”
Well… ok, there’s no shouting, but there might be a smug smile on my face.
Knitting is also something I love doing whenever I feel nervous and need an outlet. This also means I might get the urge to knit at the most inconvenient times, such as: 4 am, when I should be sleeping because I need to get up early; when I have a deadline for a commissioned work and I am afflicted by a pesky dose of insecurity; when there’s house chores to be done. Et cetera.
It seems I’ve been nervous very often lately, because the amount of FOs (that’s Finished Objects, for you non-knitter heathens out there) is just a wee bit large for someone who claims she has no free time… Some of the photos were taken before I’d finished the items. Will take new ones soon.
I also joined Ravelry, another knitting forum thing to further enable me to continue in this lovely path of obsession. Oh dear.
