Knitting existentialism

I knit a lot. I'm known as the girl who knits. But somehow I never have any knitted projects that are finished. I know I give a lot of them away, and the several knitted wearables I finished aren't really wearable at all. They are too big or the wrong color for my complexion. I feel like I'm always knitting and never get anything done.

I knit a lot of small projects to combat this feeling, but then I end up with a lot of small projects that I never use and therefore get lost. So then I'm back to feeling like I never knit.

It's an interesting dilemma that I've come across. The solution, I think is that I need to finish something I can actually wear, even if it means no more little projects for a while.

Or I just need to knit a lot more, but as much as I like knitting, I like sleep more...

couple new projects

I've started a couple new things, including another hat for someone that was supposed to have it before break.  Ooops.  I started doing it in teh round then I realized the design I wanted to do on the front wouldn't work in teh round, so I've started doing it side to side and slipping a stitch in the back so it will still be all in one piece.  It's kind of a pain, but hopefully it will turn out ok.

I also started another set of headphone sleeves for one of my friends, but I don't know if she's ever going to get them.  She's kind of gotten sort of arrogant and patronizing the past few weeks and she really pissed me off yesterday, so we'll see.  I hope everything turns out ok.  Either way, the headphones are going to be cool.
