The Insanity. Impossible goals.
It’s time to cast 20 knits into a basket(case) of insane WIPs. WIPs that must be done by Christmas Night (in Finland that’s 24th Dec).
The rules are.. basically: 20 knits, each knit has to be over 50g or 250m. Crochet is cool. Starting from 24th of June (00:00) till 24th of December (23:59). Knitathon. The kicker is: all knits must be WIPs by 30/9. The joke is: i don’t know how to knit socks, nor do i have the patience to learn. I go for the idiots way: loads of sweaters or cardis.. I have flunked-bombed out and failed miserably the last 2 times. No victory yet – but by being positive and keeping the number of large and difficult knits to a minimum i believe – i might finish about half by deadline and frog the rest. Went there. What ever.. But for despair.. my plans is -> by focusing on a knit per week – i might have chance 😀
My list at the moment:
i Hawick Cowl (by London Loop)
ii Beatrice Cardigan with a twist (by Madder Anthology (with slight modification)
iii Sideways Muumuu (by Pickles)
iv Laurel Cowl with a twist (by Madder Anthology (with slight modification)
v Something else (by 😛 me)
vi Grey Hoodie (by 😛 me again)
vii Tailwind (by Clara Falk)
viii Mellow Sweater (by Pickles)
ix Blizzard (by Drops Design)
x Camote PocketScarf (by Fair Mount Fibers.com)
xi Barndom (by Westknit)
xii Breathing Space (by Veera Välimäki)
xiii Drangey pullover (by Westknit)
xiv Metalouse shawl (by Westknit)
xv Tweed turtle (by 😛 me for a change)
xvi Lacy pearl cowl (by 😛 me again)
xvii Andromague (by Marie-Adeline)
xviii Next in line (by 😛 me again)
xix Falling Lake (by 😛 me, but inspired by Buttercup by Heidi Kirrmaier)
xx Broken Seed Stitch – kämmekkäät (by Maria Kostamovaara)
Ou nou.. bad sign. I have to scroll to make thru the list. Desperation just hit – hard.
..this list is not definite. I still got one month +few days, to pick and choose the WIPs for this project. I got so many long-ass-knits on my list (again!) that i might need to take a step back, pick up a bigger size of a needle and cast on a hipster jumbo scarf a-one-day-knit to tame the list 😀
ps. I try my best to post weekly updates of my mission impossible – the knitters war against WIPs.
