The Struggle

I think I have a problem.

I've got two scarves and a shawl to block.  I've got a Knit Picks project to finish.  I've got a sock suffering from second sock syndrome.  It needs its mate.  And I've got half a sock to knit for a friend (she knit the first sock and a half, a story for another day).

And I don't want to work on any of them.

Instead I want to knit a pattern called, aptly enough, Impromptu.

Castonitis.

The struggle is real.

Remember when I thought I was casting on for a grey shawl but it turned out to be green?

Well I've still got the grey yarn that is actually grey.

And I loves me a grey cardigan.

I know I need another grey cardigan like I need a hole in the head.  And I need to block my scarves, and my shawl, and knit my Knit Picks project, and knit my second sock, and knit my half a sock.

But I don't wanna.

I want to cast on for a depressingly plain grey cardigan.

Quck someone distract me with multi-hued sock yarn.

Well, I don't have castonitis but I have had a bit of a run with not doing my second socks. :) Just bc I want to move onto the second sock bc I'm not happy with the first sock. :)

I'm right there with you! Castonitis is my middle name!
