When I put #14 on my list, I purposely worded it so that I would be obligated to finish something. I didn't want to take the wimpy way out and say I would "try to knit". It would have been too easy to give it a couple of shots, get frustrated (which I did - a lot) and then say, "Well at least I tried".
I first started on a scarf that the directions said was "easy" or "basic" or some other lie. It said for me to knit the knits and purl the purls, and they all looked the same. So I abandoned that project and decided to knit some place mats. Those were at least a little easier: knit, knit, knit, knit, use a different color, knit some more.
I even had a contest all picked out to give the beautiful place mats to one lucky (not to mention devoted) reader. Then I decided, since I wasn't having any fun, that it would be a single place mat. Then I abandoned the whole flippin' project.
I will still hold the contest at some point. It involves looking at a picture and seeing if you can determine what in the picture makes me have a Monk Moment every single morning.
Because I don't want to feel like I quit on #14, I am going to say I did indeed knit something. I knitted (knat?) a hot mess. I'd love to post a picture of it, but my laptop is, as the Sullen Teenager would say, "jacked up". I will post a picture as soon as I can get the sledgehammer out of the screen on the laptop.
You guys are so smart. Yesterday's post was indeed the 1000th one. How can one person have that much to say?
