And I Am Off!

In just a few hours I will be airport bound! I have decided on my two holiday knitting projects. I am bringing along Argosy and Glaistig (well they are currently in the conception phase). These two projects are the two most unlikely projects for me but nevertheless I have become attached to them. In the case of Argosy, I took one look at this scarf and decided I needed to knit it. At the same time, a voice in the back of my head kept saying, "but SAK, it is entrelac! Are you ready for entrelac?" Well somehow I was able to ignore this voice, neglect to read the word entrelac in the intro, and somehow ignored the repeated mentioning of casting on during the course of the project. After falling in love with the project, the instructions came into focus and I realized that yes, entrelac is required. When I saw this, I could only mutter, "the things we do for love."

In regards to Glaistig, my first thought was, "now that is an interesting and quite unusual hat." These are not the words of someone who would knit this hat. Recently, however, I looked at the hat again, and it began to grow on me. I noticed that I had the needles and the yarn suggested and something in me shouted, "the cabling doesn't look too bad! Let's do it."

It is these random and illogical statements that get me into trouble all the time. At this point though, I must at least attempt to cast on for these two projects.

Here goes nothing!
