Here Again.

Once again I find myself at the end of several projects, and stalling to finish them. Individually it would only take about 15 to 20 minutes, or less than an hour for some others, to finish them up, but I just can't get around to it. If I were reading a book and I was near the end I would hurry up and try to finish it, because I want to know what happens, how it ends. I'm not sure why this doesn't translate in to knitting. I do want to see the finished product, and they weigh on me, like they know I'm neglecting them. So this weekend I have a list. The fat cat needs to be cut out and assembled. The Bobble purse needs to be sewn up and I need to cut and and insert the lining. The voodoo doll needs to be embroidered so I can stuff it and sew it up. I tried the needle felting thing, but it didn't work out as well as I had hoped. Embroidery is the way to go.

Hopefully I will have pictures of FOs for you this weekend.

In other interesting news, I dreamed last night that I was spinning very fine silk singles on a large spinning wheel. I was wearing an old-timey dress, and had an assistant. I knew in the dream I was spinning the singles to weave my death shroud with. Apparently I was expecting to die soon. It all seems vaguely Penelope like, in that it was going to take quite a while to spin enough singles to weave a shroud with.

I made it up as I went along. It was supposed to be for the pin cushion contest, but I never finished it in time to enter it.
