I’ve decided I’m going to send a skein of my hand-dyed yarn, this one:
to one nice person who shows me theirs — their current "project". You see, I’m in a warp in the space time continuum. I have been diligently knitting the Oh Jan dress. I knit straight through from the start of John Stewart to the end of The Colbert report, every night, Monday through Friday. I knit in the morning while at Starbucks with my oldest before the school bus collects him. I even manage a bit when I have coffee with husband and his friends in the morning and sometimes at work during a particularly annoying meeting (stress relief). I knit while waiting to pick up Miss Ellie at ballet. In other words, I knit a fair bit. But, friends, the Oh Jan dress is showing no signs of progress. It is no longer this week than it was last week. I have been knitting and knitting and knitting and, if anything, the dress is shrinking. I do not understand this. Not one bit. Surely there is some scientific theory to explain this phenomenon, but I am unaware of it.
So please show me yours! Tell me in the comments below what you are knitting right now and how it’s going (you can add a link to you blog so I can take a look). And, if you don’t knit, tell me about your collage or your sewing or whatever it is that is inspiring you right now. You see, I’ve got to leave on a business trip tomorrow for the rest of the week. I’m taking Oh Jan along to haunt me. I know I’m going to need to hear other people’s success stories to keep me going with Oh Jan. When I get back, I’ll have the littles pick one name at random out of a hat, and will send the skein of hand-dyed Peace Fleece pictured above to the lucky winner!
And, just in case you don’t believe me, I’m including a picture. We’ll see, when I get back, if she’s grown at all.
note: for some reason, typepad seems to get up to about 20 comments and then delete them and start over. please don’t worry, if you have submitted a comment, i have them all saved as email and you will be included in the drawing. and, i have contacted typepad to get them to look into this, so we can all read through everyone’s projects.
