Addicted to Knitting

splitting yarn and other such puzzling things

Posted on: November 20, 2007

Does some yarn just split more than others? Or is it the needle that causes the splitting? These and other such strange questions have dogged me the past few days. I am working on a hat for my SIL in some unknown acrylic stuff that she loves. It’s bulky stuff and very soft. And it splits like crazy. I am over half done or I would frog the whole thing. Plus she is going to be so excited since she doesn’t know I bought the yarn she threw a fit over at Walmart. sigh..Why did I buy that hateful yarn? I knew better!

Why is it when you are on a deadline and have everything lined out for several projects all you can think about is some new project you need to cast on for?

Am I the only one who lays in bed at night and thinks about what yarns would look great together in that pattern you saw earlier that day?

Why do I have 10 projects going right now? Will I ever finish any of them?

As you can see, I am a deeply disturbed fiber freak. My family is thinking of having me committed somewhere. This is fine with me as long as I can take my knitting with me!


Am I the only one who didn’t know it was NaBloPoMo?

I think you may have 10 projects started because it’s more fun to start than to finish. There’s something exciting about putting the yarn with the pattern and seeing it on the needles. But then you actually have to knit it all to get the finished project. That may not be as much fun!

How do you manage to have all your Christmas shopping done? Tell me the secret.
Having mulitple projects going is part of the knitters psychosis. I only have two going but I have yarn for two other projects. I knit very slow so it may take me six months to finish those.
