Wednesdays Are For Knitting

Did you happen to notice something that was conspicuously absent from my list of things I did last weekend? Knitting. There was none.

The Rhombi sweater grows but ever-so-slowly.

And the Tulum socks – called that because I started them on the plane on our way to Tulum – are still far from finished.

It’s a good thing this is a hobby and not a job because if I was being paid according to my production rate . . . well . . . we’d be homeless and starving.

    And I’d be more homeless than you! It seems like I hardly ever pick up the needles. The ebb and flow of life, other interests, and the evaporation of time, all conspire to keep me from my needles.

    But the yarn colorway for the Tulum socks just screams ‘Mexico’. They’ll be done when they’re ready. Knitting is like that sometimes. Not that I’d know or anything.

    My SIL and I always joke that it’s a good thing we’re not in the 18th/19th centuries and our families aren’t depending on our knitting output for warm clothing. My children would have frozen to death and my poor sister would have only one sock.

    But what you’re knitting looks great!

    If it makes you feel any better, you’re knitting more than I am. (From the comments, it sounds like you’re knitting more than many of us!) Recently I’ve only been knitting dishcloths because we never seem to have enough. Now I’m switching to dishcloths for Emma’s college apartment for next year.

    Exactly – it’s not a JOB, so you can do it whenever you darn well feel like it! I am knitting lately but nearly as much as I normally do. There just seems to be so much going on lately. Oh well.

    I love the colors of your sweater. It really is going to be pretty. And hey – no rush to finish it. It’s supposed to be 90 degrees tomorrow!

    ha! I didn’t notice at the time, but now that you mention it… I feel like knitting sometimes IS my job, but I find I enjoy it much more as a hobby. (that said, I can’t recall the last day I didn’t knit a single stitch :-)

    Ahhh…the ubiquitous UFO. You’ll prevail in the end but occasionally a knitting free weekend is a good thing.

    Oh yes, homeless for sure! Although, if carrying the knitting around with me counted then I would be the most productive person ever. Sadly, no.

    I will knit this weekend. I will knit this weekend. I will knit this weekend.

    Your knitting is far prettier than mine. I’m stalled in all sorts of areas. Oy!
