My Un-Knitting and Un-Blogging

I haven't done much knitting or blogging lately. Life keeps getting in the way. It's not like I haven't done any knitting at all, but just the opposite. I knit a little, then I rip it out. I start something, then I rip it out. I pick old projects and start to knit, then I lose interest and put it down. Get the idea? I've been Un-knitting.

So, since I haven't been able to finish things....I haven't been able to blog about them either, so I have been Un-Blogging.

I hope that I'm not jumping around too much, but I do have some things on the ol' knitting needles.

1. I have a white cardigan that I don't want to talk about or think about. It might end up in the frog pond when my mom isn't looking. (My mom says, "Finished what you started.")

2. A toddler sweater.

3. One (1) sock in dark blue....longing for a mate.

4. Pink Ribbon Socks: It took me forever to find the perfect pink yarn and now it sits.

5. Current project: A hooded baby blanket knitted on the diagonal. It's coming along, but not much of a challenge, because it's all garter st. A friend wanted another one of these. I did take the time & knit up several baby blanket swatch samples, but she wants the blanket in garter st. It makes for great knitting while watching TV or............spending 14 hrs. in the ER w/a loved one. (That's another story.)

6. Another current project: a toe-up sock. I try to work on this when I've had enough of working on the baby blanket.

The toe-up sock will have to be saved for upcoming blog, because I have never done a sock from the toe up & it's become such a challenge! I'm not happy w/the general appearance of the toe, so I have ripped it out so many times that I've had to cut the yarn & find a good spot to start knitting it again. More un-knitting. (Sigh)

So, I guess I better get busy and stop my Un-doing things.

Wow, Deborah, you sound like me! This is why lately I don't promise anyone anything unless I am certain I can come through with it. Life does get in the way, and housework and the internet (yes, parts of life, I know). Sigh.

Most of my Friends here have gone to blog elsewhere. It's just not the same. It would take too much time to go to all those other sites as well as this one to keep up. Hopefully, Yahoo will get its act together and fix things or roll out their months-old promised new network. Then maybe they will come back. Sigh.
