not quite morning glory

the knitting hasn’t been so exciting lately. the socks are on hold until smaller needles arrive. mystery stole hasn’t been tempting me. and i’ve decided i absolutely love working on morning glory so much – the pattern is fun and slightly challenging while still allowing for t.v. viewing and the yarn is wonderfully soft – that i’m dreading actually finishing it. so i’m putting it off – making morning glory my ‘reward’ knitting. which means i’ve been working on this:

i’m probably about halfway or so on my everlasting bagstopper. i thought i might have a bit of the problem with the yarn – it’s 100% hemp and a bit rough. (i understand it softens once washed.) however, the yarn really hasn’t been much of a problem. it’s a nice lacy patterns which opens up rather nicely…so, given my fondness for lace you wouldn’t think that would be a problem…

…except it’s so incredibly boring! the pattern is only 2 very simple rows. and i’m bored out of my mind when i work on it. i find stockinette stitch more entertaining. or at least more relaxing. i usually can only stand about 2 rows in a sitting, which means it’s going incredibly slowly. at least there’s still morning glory, tempting as a reward…

  1. Oy! I can well imagine that these 2 rows over and over are boring you to tears – but the result will be worth it, that bagstopper is going to look great! And so does your Morning Glory – I actually love the idea of a “Reward Knit”! But how about making another one after you’ve finished this one? Then you could enjoy the whole knit once more 😉 You sure made me very curious about the pattern!

  2. I know what you mean about knitting monotony … check my blog entry about DD2’s request for a garter stitch white scarf:( When I feel like that I try to have at least one other project on the go and alternate between the two. Good luck with it as its a fab colour!
