I thought, after having a week of pre-defined posts, that I'd have loads to write about after blog week finished... Apparently I spent all my time reading blogs and very little time actually doing anything crafty *laughs*
I'm still working on the two projects from my last post, but not enough progress has been made to share again (if only I was that quick though!) It's funny, these two WIPs remind me of this post I made about knitting personalities. I was trying to decide if I was a product or a process knitter and came to the conclusion that it depends...
On my current projects - the hooded cardigan is something I really want finished so I can wear it. Plus, between the endless rows and not entirely squooshy yarn, the process is fun but not joyfully so. Product all the way.
My so Called Scarf, on the other hand, although I really want it finished so I can wear it, I'm really enjoying making it. The stitch pattern is mindless enough to be done while chatting, or in front of the TV, but enjoyable enough for me to want to carry on. The yarn is so gorgeous, and watching the colour patterns emerge is much fun :)
So, here's the dilemma... I want the cardigan. However, I keep putting it to one side so I can knit the yummy scarf. But I want to keep knitting the scarf forever. How do I make myself knit the cardigan?!
And, to avoid a totally image free post, here's a gratuitous scarf closeup (with some interesting focus issues, sorry about that!):
