New Year’s resolution! Actually start blogging again! Let’s just dust off this thing and start over. Easy. Hello 2016! This particular resolution also coincides with my other resolution of not knitting in such a half-arsed unbloggable manner, which is quite convenient don’t you think?
When it comes to keeping a resolution, nothing motivates quite like shame. So I hereby expose my aforementioned half-arsed knitting to the public eye in the hopes that I may actually do something about it.
What is this: Too much ribbing to think about. I have turned the Victory Twinset Top from A Stitch In Time into a V-neck because V-necks are 100% sexier.
When did you start it: September 2015
So why isn’t it finished then: Hey now! I think this has gone pretty well considering it’s nothing but 2×2 ribbing in 4-ply! DID I MENTION THE RIBBING?
Likelihood of finishing it in 2016: Only one sleeve and the cuffs/collar to go, so I like those odds.
What is this: It’s the Sweater of Broad Shoulders from Midwestern Knits, in an unblocked lumpy mess
When did you start it: August 2015
So why isn’t it finished then: 90% of my knitting gets done in transit and this cardigan is now unwieldy as hell. Our freakishly warm winter has provided no immediate motivation
Likelihood of finishing it in 2016: High. Am now making decent progress on the sleeves thanks to numerous Twilight Zone marathons. TWIST: This project was actually a war veteran in a coma the whole time.
What is this: Bray, in Rowan Purelife
When did you start it: August 2014…
So why isn’t it finished then: Have you seen the price of purelife?? Plus I still haven’t decided whether I want the back to be the same as the front which is a totally legit hold point.
Likelihood of finishing it in 2016: Well I might want to buy property at some point this year too so not great.
What is this: Me slapping random monotone patterns onto a basic raglan jumper pattern after seeing a similar Topman jumper I liked.
When did you start it: September 2014
So why isn’t it finished then: Low on wool, increasingly dreading repeating every single pattern on the sleeves.
Likelihood of finishing it in 2016: I didn’t realise this thing was so photogenic until this post! Maybe this will inspire me to get it done for winter ’16.
What is this: That unbelievably small gauge Blouse from A Stitch in Time.
When did you start it: April 2013
So why isn’t it finished then: I ran out of laceweight and hope.
Likelihood of finishing it in 2016: Nah come on that’s crazy talk.
Ellen, have you been appropriately filled with shame: Yes
