3 Confessions

Ok, so I have to confess something. I ripped out the Column of Leaves Scarf. Again. And I have now chosen to knit a much easier pattern, using the Men's Cashmere Scarf pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Except it's not for a man. And it's not in cashmere. And it's on Size 8 needles, not Size 11. Well, it's pretty much not the same scarf at all. But you get the gist, right? As much as I loved the first pattern, I have had to rip and restart so many times. I am starting to panic about Christmas being next month, and in all reality, the first pattern was fairly girly, and L is not really all that girly. She would probably want a tougher scarf, more heavy-duty, right? (Notice my quick justification here.) Most importantly, I will be able to knit in front of the TV, and will definitely finish by Christmas.

Ok, here's another confession. I spend more time looking at blogs filled with knitting and other crafts than I do actually knitting/crafting/blogging myself. I just can't help myself! The inspiration and talent out there is overwhelming. Thanks to everyone who shares so much of their talent. I am in awe.

Ok, third confession. I am watching the CMA's right now. Anyone else a country music fan? Anyone else really fall for all the gorgeous cowboys out there?

Thanks for the good luck wishes - 1 more week to go!!

PS: I ripped my Backyard Leaves 4 times before finally getting it right. Sometimes knitting can be sooo stressful! Hang in there... x
