So, I think longterm blogger friends will be very well aware of my ability to procrastinate until the last minute with projects and also to get fixated on something that isn’t a priority…
On December 11th I cast on a lace scarf as a gift for my very lovely line manager, who has made settling in to my new job such a pleasure. Her birthday is January 10th, which would have given me PLENTY of time to knit a 49 stitch scarf with 2 set ups of 30 rows and 24 repeats of a 16 row pattern. Plenty.
Then late on Wednesday evening I discovered that listening to an exciting audio book made me knit faster (or possibly it was the thought of finishing!)
So Thursday I put on a good book and got stuck in. After 3 repeats I decided (it was 10.30pm) that I could finish this tonight and went for it. My needles have never clacked together so fast!
I’m now off to block the beast. Will post a pic when it’s a final FO!
