"Halloween is just over 2 months away, and what better way to frighten a knitter than to do one or more of the following:
- Knit 4,000 yards before Halloween
- Knit up the most challenging pattern in your queue.
- Use the most difficult yarn in your stash--mohair, splitty, so black you
can’t see even the biggest garter stitch--whatever is most difficult.
- The personally-scares-you challenge of your choice.
That's a direct quote from her blog. I think you should play along too, after you pop over to visit her at her blog and say Hi.
I think I will start my Dash tomorrow. I haven't touched knitting needles in close to two weeks, with this past week being a complete write off since my Mom was visiting. Frankly, I've kind of slacked off once I finished that second pair of Kroy FX socks. I have all kinds of TV series on DVD as background noise so it's just a matter of finding fitting projects. I have way too much mohair in my stash still, even after the King sized bedspread. I think I will pick a lace project to work on once the kids start back to school and my days are blissfully quiet again. And I "need" a cardigan or two. And then I could start working on some Christmas gifts...
Yesterday, I remembered how much I like sewing. Mom had brought all sorts of items that were in need of alterations, and I worked some miracles if I do say so myself.
