Today’s prompt is from kelkyag: Knitting
Oh, man, I haven’t knitted in so long. Children are walking and talking who I had Big Plans to knit baby clothes for.
And it’s a pity, and something I ought to rectify, because knitting is very soothing. It calms me down, gives me something to do with my hands, and takes some of my attention so that I can spend the rest of it focusing.
On my list of things I really want to knit:
Shahin’s wristwarmers, in large part because I want to use them in the Kickstarter.
A girl-stuff pouch for my purse, because, well, girl stuff. <.<
Something for a friend’s kid before said kid heads off to college.
The two hats I have planned for other friends, before they’re 80.
And, in the dream-big realm, I really want to knit myself a Douglas Adams/Dr. Who homage towel shawl blanket.
Maybe start small? I think I have a dishcloth on the needles, or there’s always the 13-foot scarf I was knitting for a friend. I got through 6 feet of it…
*flexes fingers* I’m allergic to wool, so knitting for me is almost always cotton or linen. I’m just beginning to get a feel for bamboo, but it is so different from cotton…
Maybe I’ll knit myself a set of pulse warmers first.
