Late Night Cravings

Late this past Friday night, I found myself craving a big bowl of something. But what???
Ice cream? Chocolate chips? Betty Crocker icing?

As I was making my way down to the kitchen, it was a big bowl of a little something else stopped me in my tracks.

A big bowl... of leftover sock yarn.

All of a sudden the type of craving I was having shifted gears completely.

But I knew that my craving wouldn't be entirely satisfied until I did the unmentionable... which is 'cast on'.


So that's exactly what I did.

And what I ended up with... was utterly and entirely addictive.

Linen Stitch Scarf by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas

Normally I wouldn't think twice about casting on a new project- especially at the beginning of a weekend!

However... today marks the 'one month to go' until I walk down the aisle and say "I Do". (Yeeeeeah... so much for a Winter 2013 wedding- right?) November 17th it is! And the calendar indicates that today is October 17th... Whoops!

Between now and then there is lots to get through, and I should know better than to cast on a project like this one only because... nothing else is going to get done until I cast this scarf off. (And I'm not just talking about tasks that are knitting related that are going to be neglected).

If my groom ends up waiting for me at the altar... tell him I just have to finish off the fringe, then I'll be right there.

He knows not to take that sort of thing personally.

That's why I'm marrying him.

Less than a month now... We are SO happy for you. I think, if you handed the scarf off to a guest at the weddding (one who knits), she/he would be happy to finish it. To get you to the church on time, my fair lady. Blessings.
