Yesterday for the first time in about ten years I found myself with nothing on my knitting needles -- sort of! You have to understand though that there is shop or work knitting and home knitting which in my head are totally different even though they use the same pair of hands to complete them. My nothing on the needles shock refers to home knitting as I've been finishing off projects to clear my head for new ones (Woolly Wumpkins* comes to mind here) and to clear the space around my chair in the sitting room. A big project finished is Tasha's university blanket (no knitting left just needs backing and embroidery twiddles) which has cleared a very large space and will keep her nice and cosy when she can't afford heating or food from her student maintenance loan.
Anyway I was feeling very smug until I realised I wouldn't have anything to knit while waiting at the dentist's yesterday so I delved in my knitting bag to find some yarn and instead came out with a project bag with a cobweb shawl that I cast on about two months ago, did three edging scallops and put away again. So I didn't have nothing on the needles -- my smugness was misplaced!
*don't forget Michelle will be in on Saturday from 11.30 for a couple of hours with here new self-striping yarns.
