I Did It -or- Remember That Chair?

I have to say, back when I posted about my knitaholicism (in hindsight, I think that really should be knitaholism), I didn't believe I would finish these items that quickly, but guess what? I did! Well, mostly, anyway. Remember the tea cozy? I had yarn, needles, and pattern gathered for that project, but never even cast on. I have decided to put that on the back burner for the time being. Instead of the cozy, I snuck in another pilot cap, in chocolate brown cotton, to match the baby kimono. A very nice set, which you may already have seen in this post. Plus I've got another pilot cap in cream colored wool on the needles right now. Ummm.... and another towel! Okay, maybe I really have a problem here...

Anyway, just to remind you of what my chair looked like ten days ago:

And here's the after picture:

See what another ten days will do?

I have many other projects in mind but really am determined to finish Mary's sweater. It will be my "thinking" knitting, while the towels and pilot caps can remain mindless, reading-out-loud-to-the-boys, tv-watching, waiting-at-chorus-or-jujitsu, car-riding knitting.

Just wanted to share! Thanks for looking!


  1. I need to have that smiley that bows down to the other!!! WAY TO GO!!! I am so impressed. When I grow up I hope I knit as well and fast as you. :)

  2. Oh my goodness. TEN DAYS produced that? Bless your heart, you're good at this!

  3. Marci, you will get better and better, and thanks for the kudos! I'm blushing over here...

    Sassafrass, thank you, too! Just remember, I've been knitting a L O N G time! And, technically, it was a total of about 20 days!
