Call Me Indecisive

You know, I started a cardigan (size 4) for Dulaan (using up the bits and pieces of the Pinguoin that I've been yammering about forever) and decided after about 10 rows (it was top-down) that this was Not Going To work.

All Those Ends to weave don't bother me so much as All Those Ends On The Front Edge to weave, so I frogged back to nothingness and cast on anew.

In the round. Pullover.

Even now, I'm not so sure, but I want to finish up this yarn, get the last ball off my spreadsheet, and never look back.

Bunch of hats isn't going to do it for me.

The green blob in the background is a Tomten (Elizabeth Zimmermann design) in Knitaly (superwash wool). It will likely be finished before the pullover.

Miles of soul-sucking garter stitch. Miles.

And I am yammering. Yes.

I have had overnight to chew on and digest some of the things going on at The Place Of Employment and figuring that while I am Not The Enemy, I am In Charge and it is My Butt iOn The Line, and so, while I am Not The Enemy, I am Neither The Friend.

Mind you, nothing is life threatening, or even job threatening. It's just a question of mutual goals and mutual support.

I will be knitting away today. And not thinking about it! (I feel a bit like Scarlet O'Hara.)

There will be actual pictures.

Sometimes "the best laid plans of mice and men ..." Hope your pullover is more interesting that gobs and gobs of mindless garter stitch, at least; you always end up with WONDERFUL sweaters for Dulaan, so I'm hoping to take some inspiration from you and do something this round. Not sure what yet, but something ...

So, knit away; you can be the "boss" on Monday!
