I've been trying to use up the bits in my stash and baby clothes can
be great for that. Not that I have a huge stash, mind you, just a little. My queue is another thing. I may have to leave that in my will. So I have some
skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fine that I really liked using before but none of them is quite a full skein. What little sweater can I knit for Reese? Bow-tied Bolero by Debbie Bliss would be just perfect. My math skills not so perfect, but I bet I can just make it. I finish the back, both fronts, and the edging and on to the little sleeves, will I have enough? I keep knitting despite that sinking
feeling that I'm just not going to quite make it. One sleeve done. Eight
rows short on the second one. Check the stash, I have a little little bit
of the same color left, still have that sinking feeling. No still not
enough. Rip out both sleeves, do more math, make both sleeves a little
shorter. How long are her arms anyway?
Whew, just enought with this much left over.
My question is, when I really know deep down in my heart it's not enough, what makes me keep knitting in denial of that fact?
