I’m making the “Anne Shirley” scarf from the latest issue of Knitty for my ex-husband’s Mom. (She adopted me and says she loves having a daughter.) After ripping out the damn thing several times I finally got the hang of the pattern. Only thing is that I never did the reverse. It’s supposed to make a completely reversible scarf. The pattern is lovely but right now I cant decide whether or not to rip the fucking thing out and re-knit it. I know if I did it would make the pattern pop out more. (If I had a camera I’d show you what I have already). I dont want to rip it out again (ugh!) but have come to the realization that not everything I want to knit by Christmas is going to get done. I still have stuff for my parents and brother to knit, my gay boyfriend and his partner, ex-husband, a close friend, and my boyfriend. Oh yeah, I got volunteered to knit a scarf as a birthday gift for one of the girls at work.
As I was rushing out the door to catch the bus (almost didnt make it, yes it was one of those mornings. And I couldnt decide what to wear) I realized that not everything is going to be done in time. My parents, brother, boyfriend, and birthday gift are going to have to take priority. Especially if I want to bake anything at all this year.
Damn it. Why cant my fingers move faster. I guess this is a long and rambling way to say I’ll probably end up ripping out the Anne Shirley scarf AGAIN! God fucking damn it. At least holiday spaz out loves company.
