You will sacrifice all of your other projects for one that will guarantee you to become a bored-out-of-your-mind, blind-as-a-bat, pulling-your-hair-out-of-your-head, snot-sobbing, sleep-deprived, no-feeling-in-your-arse, bumbling lunatic of a knitter...to a certain degree. You may or may not experience one or all of the above in your knitting life-time.
Sometimes knitting should come with a warning label; Warning: Purchase of this product may cause mild to serious side-effects. If you experience sleeplessness, blurry vision, bed-sores on your bum, bald patches on your head due to excessive stress, or fall into a catatonic stupor, it is highly recommended you see your nearest knitting professional at 1-800-Tim-Hortons.
So, I've set aside my Kauni cardigan. A project that screams colour. A project that I desperately want done. A project that looks like a jigsaw puzzle...
that only needs a few more pieces before it's complete.
For this project for my boy.
A seaman's scarf.
Not a tweedy black.
Not a marled black.
After I finish this, my boy also wants a pair of Cigar gloves from Knitty.
Can you guess in what colour?
Yep, all black.
I'll do it. It will be ready and waiting for him in his Christmas stocking because I love him that much.
I'll survive...afterall, I live within walking distance of six Tim Hortons.
Keep On Knitting...
