Inch By Inch

Remember the old 3 Stooges? I grew up watching them (yeah, it says alot about me now). One of their old routines was the Susquehanna Hat Company. Every time someone said Susquehanna, Curly would go nuts. "Slowly I turn, step by step, inch by inch...". It cracks me up because this is what I'm thinking every time I look at one of my current projects. Slowly I turn in my workshop and look at it. Then  step by slow step, I go towards it. Then I knit an inch on it. So, inch by inch, I'm working on this scarf. I'll start from the beginning:

Here is my nemesis last week. It looks innocent enough. I wanted to make a man's scarf out of Griffin's fleece from last year. It is a nice light fawn. Not too frilly since it is for a guy. I don't know what I was thinking! lol Look at those little toothpicks it is being knit on. It is taking freaking forever to knit. It is a simple knit 1, purl 1 pattern. It sounded easy when I started. But after about 6 inches of it, I was done with it! It needs to be several feet long! With my other 'not finished yet' projects laying around, I do not want to add another one to the pile. So---inch by inch! I am knitting an inch on the scarf every day before I start working on anything else until it is done. I am trying to be very disciplined about it. I hope it gets done in this calendar year. (((giggle)))  I'm getting ready to go out into my workshop. And there it will be sitting on the table. I will slowly turn and look at it. Step by step towards it. and inch by inch.................

The scarf today.

Knit happy!

Talk to you soon,  Tammy
