In a perfect knitting world, every time you picked up your needles, you would know that everything would always work out. You’d always get gauge. You’d never run out of yarn or have to frog a project back. Any gift you knit would always be the right colour, size, and fit and the recipient would be worthy of the work. The gift would also be on time and you would meet all your knitting deadlines with ease and grace. Sadly though, we aren’t talking about the perfect knitting world. We are talking about my knitting world and in my world my BFF received her Christmas present a little late. Yesterday actually. (But we won’t deal on that).
She had already seen her gift as I had given her the option of having me knit it in front of her thus spoiling the surprise but greatly decreasing the length of time she would have to wait for the finished object. Maybe I should do the same thing for her birthday gift. Sigh.
The pattern is Earth & Sky
And I used Silky Wool
One last note on a perfect knitting world. You wouldn’t have my SIL’S pooch trying to help you with your knitting by sticking her nose smack in the middle of every ball you pull out of your knitting bag just long enough to sneeze in it. Every. Single. Time.
