"I like to knit a little lit." a quote from my knitting friend Miss J.

Last night I pulled out my much ignored knitting bag. It's been weeks since I've knit. Which was shockingly evident by the state of the two projects I had on the go. Had being the operative word. One was a celery green cabled shrug for myself and the other an incredibly sweet soft brown hat , with lace edging for a newly bald friend. Both are now unraveled and back into balls. Just wasn't feeling the knitting grove for these two items.
Maybe had I cracked open the beer I found within my knitting bag last night, my groove may have been on! Imagine! A beer in a knitting bag! It arrived there en route to the 20th High School Reunion. Did I knit a stitch that weekend? Nope. Did I drink that beer? Not last night, but it's calling to me now and so are those wooden knitting sticks.
A new project on the go. Another Shruggigan. This one is for me and in different shades of stone/taupe. We shall see what the future holds, but if I keep leaving the bag within Bup's reach so that he can steal a needle and walk around pretending he's an old man....well, it just doesn't bode well, now does it.
Stay tuned.
Until then....what creative project(s) do you have on the go?

  1. Hmmm, I like to knit a lil lit as well. AND, I see you're learning my trick of always having a beverage in the knitting/craft bag to make sure one is appropriatly hydrated or lit. =) Perhaps had I been knitting a lil more lit I wouldn't have landed in hospital this week. Something to consider. =)
