I hate to have to make this confession, but that makes it no less true! I am a dyed in the wool Rules Girl. If you tell me that I have to turn left and pat my tummy before pulling up in front of the house, chances are I'll do it! The only rule I really don't adhere to is the speed limit but my foot is a lot less heavy than it used to be. (most of the time) So when it comes to knitting, I (sometimes stupidly) make rules for myself. The following in particular seems to be getting a lot of play lately:
- When knitting in a KAL, knit only with the group:
I've been feeling particularly guilty and I guess this is sort of to smooth my own ruffled feathers. After all, when you knit by the rules the whole experience loses a lot of fun and relaxation! Work is pretty stressful right now so I can't afford to lose out on the fun stuff!
I'm on bride duty tomorrow for a big wedding, with any luck there will be good cake and lots of it! I'd appreciate it if you didn't remind me that the deep fried Twinkies and corn dog I ate earlier in the week have made it a really good idea NOT to eat cake! I'll be knitting Friday evening, more than likely swatching the Swish for the EZ leggings project. With any luck I'll manage to squeeze in some knitting while I bride wrangle and the rest of this holiday weekend just might find me with needles in my hands as well, knitting what makes me happiest at the moment.
Enjoy your weekend! Get knittin'!
