Procrastination

I am the Queen of Procrastination.

When in college I had a professor who assigned a painting a week. They had to be dry. Ya, well, oil paintings take a while to dry, so it's best not to do them the night before they're due... unless you get very creative with fixative. Ya, I bought that stuff by the case. I would find anything else to do other than the project that I needed to get done.

Anyway, I still have this problem. I have a handful of things I need to get done, so I'm finding other things to do... like starting new projects:

The Diamond Fantasy Shawl. This is a pretty sweet pattern. Easy to do. Nice sized charts and the edging is knit as you go. Love it. The yarn is the Fearless Fiber yarn that I just love. I will say that the yarn is a little closer to sport weight to fingering weight. Which is great for socks, however the Diamond Fantasy is in either lace or fingering weight, so it is going to be a wee bit bulkier than the pattern calls for. That's just fine with me... especially since I'm using lace for the Shoalwater Shawl:

So I felt guilty that I hadn't been working on the Shoalwater (especially since I had to frog back the bind off for Nicole and her's is just lovely). So I worked away a few rows on it yesterday. Then I realized that I started on the wrong row on the chart and had to frog back all the work I did on it yesterday. So while I spent some quality time with it, there is zero progress!!

Since Lauren finished her latest project on Friday (ya, she does nice work, no?) I should feel inspired to finish at least one of my projects...

Oh, and by the way... the lastest Ratchet and Clank game that I was all excited about bites. It sooooo sucks it's not even funny. To say I'm disappointed in an understatement. The first 3 games in the series were so much fun, but the 4th is like a Jak and Dexter game and so not my taste (please game developers, let me change the controls... or I can't play your game). Oh well, just gives me more time to knit, right?

Happy Knitting!
