i have been avoiding posting for awhile because even thinking about drudging through everything makes me feel emotionally exhausted. i have a bunch of stuff to share, but i have a sneeking suspicion that i will run out of steam before i get through it all.
okay, here goes:
the entrelac scarf was finished in time for christmas, due in large part to several marathon 10+ hour knitting days. i put so much thought and effort into it that when i finished it i felt both relieved and let down. the let down wasn't due to the result, though; i think that it turned out beautifully.
i almost didn't give it to the intended recepient, as it is reasonably clear to me that he does not deserve it, but in the end i decided that if every detail was custom made for him that he should have it. importantly, i wanted him to have it. i was so worried that he wouldn't like it, wouldn't appreciate it, or wouldn't wear it. in the end, i suppose that it won't matter. the process matters, and i learned more than one important lesson from this process. most of those lessons had nothing to do with knitting.
jesus, i'm already emotionally exhausted. let's move on to something much happier (and much cuter): i've been knitting baby things (for my soon-to-be second cousin)! and holy crap they're cute!
take a look-see:
