I can just hear the kids now…”Are you still knitting that? Aren’t you done yet?!”
I know, right?!
Earlier this week, I was able to show the kids at the school where I currently work another set of leaves forming in the pattern. Though they oohed and aaahed over that, I still heard the restlessness in their voices.
I can definitely relate! I love the soothing quality of knitting and spinning. But, I always come to that same point every time. I want to see it done, and like a kid on a seemingly never-ending road trip, I want to press my nose against a window and just scream out, “Are we there yet?!”
Why, yes. Yes, we are.
I finished the knitting last night and decided to block it for the kids to see at breakfast duty where I usually found five or ten minutes to knit on it in the mornings before socking it away, many times, until the next day’s breakfast duty. You can imagine how slow-going this was. That is in no way reflective of this beautifully written pattern. It’s more reflective of the fact that, anymore, if I sit for anywhere near five minutes, I find myself waking up hours later when it’s time to call it a night for teachers. Yup. I am back on kiddy time, lol. This knit, which could’ve been done in a day or two, only found its way into my hands for short stints here and there, consequently. Sigh.
So. Ready for something else?
Yes. I am definitely there.
