Back in December, in that lull just after Christmas, when it’s okay to sit in bed knitting of a morning, and do a few quiet rows after lunch, I started knitting this….
I was so excited. I’d asked for the book for Christmas, so I could knit one of the gorgeous curls with my beautiful Bamsi T gifted to me by the lovely Joey at Little Black Dog SA back in May.
Intricate lace needs concentration, so it wasn’t something I could enjoy knitting unless lovely hubby was really engrossed in the telly and I wasn’t. So when January struck with no more knitting in bed and no rows after lunch, it got put in my knitting basket and left.
But this week lovely husband’s been away and I’ve picked my curl back up. I’ve managed just over a dozen rows and loved every minute of knitting them. Lovely Hubby’s usually here, so it’s still not going to grow quickly, but I’m going to enjoy every stitch, so what’s the hurry?
However, while this project’s definitely going to hang around unfinished for quiet a while, it’s most definitely not a UFO. But it really points out the for me the line between UFO and a WIP; how much pleasure I’m getting from knitting a WIP and how a UFO’s mere existence sucks my energy.
So my mission, when hubby is home over the weekend, is to pull out my knitting UFOs – I think (hope) there’s only one – finish it and have a knitting UFO free year!
Anyone care to join me?
