That Wandering Eye

I love wearing lightweight sweaters, and I mostly like knitting them. Of the 35 sweaters I’ve put on to Ravelry (because I can’t begin to remember the ones I made pre-Ravelry), a lucky 13 of them have been sport weight or lighter. Clearly I don’t hate fine-gauge sweaters.

BUT. There comes a point in every sweater’s creation, usually sometime around the sleeves, where my eye begins to wander. I can’t help but notice all the other sexy little projects out there, and wonder how I got stuck with this dud. I know in my heart there’s not anything wrong with my poor little sweater in progress. It hasn’t done anything to deserve my scorn.

I’m just tired of it. I need a quick dalliance with a sweet little something on the side, then I’ll go back to being a loyal sweater knitter. I swear.

I’m leaning towards making a Chill Pill, mostly because I think it would be fun to throw at my coworkers during whiny team meetings (we’re a bit of a silly bunch). Totally understandable, right?

    I’m constantly cheating on my main project, usually a garment, with socks. Sometimes things get a little out of control and socks just take over my life and that’s all I knit, even though I should be focusing on my main project.

    • The funny thing is, I almost always have multiple projects going at once. I don’t know what’s with me lately that I’ve been serially monogamous with my projects. Maybe just too many designs with deadlines. I think it’s time to go back to my old project-philandering ways.

  2. Of course there is a lot of knitting in lightweight pullovers – I can totally understand your need for some distraction now and again!

  3. All right, girl. The chill pill looks absolutely fun and whimsical – just like a dalliance should be! Just as long as you go back to your sweater, go ahead. We’ll be watching you – teehee!
