Be on the lookout for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse!
(If you don’t know how long this UFO has been around, read this.)
OK, so I know I said I wasn't going to work on the UFOs during my "vacation".
Well, that was before I got strep throat on the very first day of my "vacation". I mean, it's not like I had this penciled in on my calendar:
Wow, this UFOlympics thing is getting to be quite an eye-opener for me.
For one thing, I have started to realize just how little time I devote to knitting in the course of a standard week. I mean to the actual act of pulling one loop of yarn through another. Sure, I spend plenty of time writing about knitting, and teaching others about knitting, and working on my someday-I’ll-have-a-new-cool-website-about-knitting — but as for ACTUAL KNITTING, it seems to be an endangered species at my house.
If you think waaaaay back, you might remember a few issues I had while trying to make some felted slippers for myself.
Of course, these were not just your garden variety felted slippers. No, I had to make it harder than that. My goal was to replicate my dearly beloved, but quite elderly, pink furry bunny slippers: Hip and Hop.
Over the weekend, I had a touch of "the depression" *.
Specifically, I had the knitting depression.
I didn’t have a single decent current project, the UFOs were one big pile o’ crap, I hated everything in my hotlist **.
