As much as I am enjoying the process (I do love to plan a good party!), I am a touch grumpy about how much time it is taking away from my knitting. Not only that, but also the brain power. I am having troubles stringing together a proper sentence it would seem, let alone knit anything beyond the basics.
I guess I could also blame the heat, but let's be real... it's the wedding. Not the flaming hot, hot heat that has recently ensconced the Greater Toronto Area. Because if it was the heat... I wouldn't be knitting what I am knitting at the moment.
Which leads me to my current project.
Miles and miles of beautiful alpaca garter stitch.
I cast on this garter stitch about two weeks ago as a solution to my bride brain problem. I wanted something that I could pick up and put down easily without much mental effort. I can surf the web, read papers and chat on the phone, all whist clicking away.
My thoughts on this garter stitch project at about the halfway point however?
Because despite casting on what I considered to be one of the easiest projects on the planet, it's not perfect. It's really far from perfect in fact.
And something tells me it's not the bride brain that's causing this.
It's just the nature of the garter stitch beast.
So a big thumbs up to all you beginner knitters out there working on your first garter stitch project.
I have nothing but mad respect for you.
I promise you that stocking stitch is a heck of a lot more forgiving.
No word of a lie.
