There was at least twice over the past few days when I’ve questioned my sanity or specifically my knitting sanity. (I question my own real world sanity all the time. I think the fact that I am a little crazy makes me more charming and endearing.)
The first moment happened on Saturday and though I’ve hinted I’m not yet ready to share what lead to that. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it myself.
The second moment led to these. This tiny mitered squares are the beginning of the sock yarn afghan that I first wrote about many many months ago.
It also lead to the purchase of this little container from the Dollar Store, so that I have my sock ends in something cute and so they are easily accessible when the urge hits to work on the blanket.
I’m excited to finally have this on the needles and since I have no expectations of when it will be finished there’s no pressure. I can make squares whenever the urge strikes me and ignore it when I want. And, I don’t want to purchase any additional yarn for this project. Everything in this basket is ends from my own projects or ends that other knitters have shared with me. I realize that only using ends will increase how long the whole thing will take. But the frugal side of me is more than happy with that.
So I’ll update when things are moving along and if any of you do feel the urge to donate ends that are collecting dust I can assure you they will go to a good cause.
