Captive Knitting

Tomorrow I'm going to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort for three days. I will have meetings. I will also have free time. I will not be with close friends which translates into lots of "me" time. And, of course, we all know that "me" time is "knitting" time.

It just makes sense that I should take the project that NEEDS to get finished ASAP. Like either of the two pairs of Christmas socks or the scarf for Kelly made from Shelly's yarn. If you take only what needs to be done, you have no choice but to work on it. Right?

But right now, oddly, I'm all about the lace. It's summery. It's light. It's so June/July/August.
I just want to knit the lace. I'm finally enjoying the process. At the end of every row, I have the correct amount of stitches. It's a freaking miracle. I want to take the lace.

What will Holly do?

Good Holly/Bad Holly! Only taking what needs to be done means it gets done. BUT if you really don't want to do it, it just ends up languishing in the knitting bag.

take both:)
that way when you need a break from what needs to be done - you can work on the lace a little bit.

Why don't you ever tell me these things ahead of time?! That's in my coverage area! I could havetaken you to lunch or something! Wasn't it elegant?!
