Progress has been pretty slow on this sweater. It’s not that I haven’t been doing much knitting. I have. I have stuff from Ikea still in pieces and various boxes with only two or three things left inside that I’ve been avoiding. Knitting is a great procrastination tool if you’re not diligent. So where is all of the progress if I’ve been knitting a lot? Well, I can’t show you. I’ve been working on a secret project on the side, neglecting this poor sweater.


Do you ever pity your neglected projects? I feel guilty when I go too long without working on them. I felt sorry for the sweater so I picked it up yesterday, put on Supernatural (My current TV series to watch through – I’m on season 4), and got to work. The nice thing about redoing a project is that you can fix things you weren’t happy about before. In this case I got the opportunity to make my colorwork a little tidier when I got to those rows on the back. I tend to leave my floats too loose which isn’t a problem when you’re working with sticky wool, but it makes for uneven stitches when you’re working with a smoother wool like Quince & Co. Chickadee.


  • Nice floats. 🙂

    I just started Supernatural. I think I’m two episodes in. It hasn’t quite captured me yet, but I’m hoping to eventually get into it, ’cause I like me some tv knitting time.

    • It took me a few episodes to get over the fact that both of the leads are from teen dramas I used to watch (Gilmore Girls and Dawson’s Creek), and the fact that a lot of the episodes in the first season are knock offs of horror movies, but I quite like the show now. But to be honest, I’ll watch pretty much anything with monsters and mysteries; I love that stuff.

  • All the time, girl. I have a pity project staring at me right now. Usually it’s a sweater of some sort that I’ve sort of lost interest in because it wasn’t fun to crochet. Oh well. I’ll look at her over the weekend and get her done…

  • Oh yes I get very very guilty. But on the plus side you get a great feeling of satisfaction when you do finally pick something neglected up after ages and finish it. I’ve got a mammoth poncho on the hook now that has been in the works for more than a year, and it’s so close to finish I am salivating!!

  • I feel so guilty! I have so many projects sitting in the closet.

    I love Supernatural! It gets better with each season 🙂 and Sam and Dean get hotter and hotter 😉

  • I’m pretty good about only knitting on or two things at a time, so nothing it ever “neglected”, but I do feel guilting when I haven’t knit in awhile (happening now!).

  • I do feel bad for my neglected projects, too! And I’ve got Supernatural on my list. I’m FINALLY watching Buffy for the first time. Love!
