Looks like I ran out yarn.
I wanted to destroy the yarn scrap collection I had collected. And I did. But without it, I am… nothing.
I admit it. I feel lost without all that scrap about me, it was a nice project that I could do without looking at it, meaning I could watch the TV in full appreciation, which was nice since I usually end up listening to TV since it is hard to not have something in my hands!
While I am sad to have to put this project on hold while I create more scrap yarn, I feel accomplished that I have done some good stash busting work! I wanted to make it as a pet blanket to send to a dogs center, but it is still far too small at 15″x15″ approximately. I made it by tying together scraps of yarn, which I then crocheted, then knitted. Three stages, but it was super quick and easy. You can see the progress reports I made when making it in these two posts, Snitting Knitting and Snitting is the New Knitting.
I’ll try to be happy I have finished this. I actually finished it a few days ago, but it took me a while to get some photos of it. Since then, I have had time to focus on other projects, such as The Knitted Blue Jumper, the Striped Blocks Quilt and the Crumb Quilt, which I’ll give you an update on soon. And the latest most exciting project…knit-a-sock-along. All that, and I am making a quilt for this years Festival of Quilts in Birmingham! I’m really looking forward to that, and I went out and bought all my fabrics today…stipend! And now I have two weeks to make it. I dread deadlines, I do.
Maybe the Snitting Project represents a simpler time, a time of TV watching and bamboo knitting needles. Now I have to step into the present, where deadlines exist and there isn’t time to watch TV. So I says, “goodbye snitted thing, until next time” as I put it away. “It was nice working with you.”
