The only thing I have on my needles now is the Muir scarf which I casted on March 22. It’s been more than two months now and progress is slow. Something about this project is not working for me.
It might be the chart that I’m knitting from. 32 rows for each repeat. It’s painstakingly slow for me and I need to concentrate so hard. Mind you, I have the focus of a goldfish! By the end of the day when I do have time to knit, my brain and eyes are too tired to deal with it. And I swim away from Muir yet again.
The other possibility why I’m put off from this project is the way the Malabrigo yarn stripes. It stripes almost every two rows and the pretty leaf design seem lost. Tell me again why I pushed on with this? I should have listened to my instincts and picked another pattern.
Or it could be that I picked laceweight yarn so progress is slow. In two months, I’ve knitted 70cm. I admit that I have been distracted by other projects. But now I’m left with this. 110cm of lace knitting to go. I can’t bare to frog it and start again because it really is a soft, light and airy scarf. Exactly what I set out to achieve for my friend in Singapore.
I’ve taken a deep breath and I’m going to keep going. I might try to knit an hour of it every morning when I’m bright and alert. (I’m a morning person) Every week, I’ll show you my progress. Maybe that will drive me on.
Have you had a similar experience with one of your craft projects? What did you end up doing?
