Some days I’m pretty sure I’m a little crazy. Other days I know I am. Over the long Thankgiving weekend between cooking, serving, eating and cleaning up I was knitting and watching Netflix, a knitters best friend. I tried different ways of dividing my time: watch an episode of “The Killing”(44 episodes in total- I’ve gone to heaven! I haven’t watched them all, yet.) while knitting Milo* and then when the next episode starts switch to the Sweet Summer Shawl. This didn’t work very well. I like to stop on a specific row of each pattern so I know what I face when I pick it back up (crazy!). Next I tried just knitting a repeat of the rows. It was too much time on one project and not enough time on the other since one has an 8 row repeat and the other a 20 (crazier!). Finally I decided to just set the stop watch on my phone and knit for about 3 hours on each stopping at the end of the repeat (craziest!!). This worked beautifully. I feel like I spent plenty of time on each project and got a visible amount done. I’m pleased even if I did have to expose my brand of crazy.
*There was an incident with Milo that required ripping back the whole thing and starting again. There was cursing. I’ll spare you the details.
