I wish I had an exciting knitting update for you but things are pretty much the same on that front.
There is progress . . . but it’s not exciting progress. The leg of the second toe up sock is longer. The length of the Daytripper Cardigan is longer. But neither is longer by much and I blame Tik Tok and reading and, quite frankly, Fred and George.
It’s fairly easy to knit on the sock while they are awake as they don’t seem to pay much mind to that. But the sweater? Those Icelandic wool fumes are irresistible to them and I can only work on it when they are (soundly) asleep. I’ll finish it one of these days.
In the meantime, I am enjoying the process.

Does the Icelandic yarn smell like sheep??
My cat loves the Lettlopi (and all other woolly yarns). I’ve caught him on more than one occasion trying to steal a ball.
Slow and steady wins the race. I too have been distracted from knitting. But that is okay… you are so right, the process is where the joy lies!
It is really easy to get distracted these days, but at least your distractions are mostly “fun” distractions. I am distracted by all the tragedy going on, and I am having trouble reading and knitting. Must meditate more! Have a happy Wednesday.
I can just picture G&F “helping” you with your knitting! 😉
And . . . things take the time they take. Life is full of options for using our time, and that’s Just Fine.
F&G are too cute to ignore, in addition to the fact that they are irresistibly attracted to Icelandic wool fumes. I like how Kym put it: things Do take the time they take and you should enjoy the process.
I think if I had two adorable kittens running around, I’d be distracted, too! I’m sure the sweater will get finished eventually, and really there’s no rush at this point because even though it’s still kind of sweater weather, it’s likely a little too mild for an Icelandic sweater. So enjoy the process — and the kittens!
🙂 you have two wonderful reasons to not be knitting so much! in the big ol’ scheme of things, these moments matter way more than a finished project!
