this is going to sound really bad, but, i think i have knitting-related attention deficit disorder. now, i haven't been officially diagnosed or anything, but, i swear - when it comes to knitting, i could have five different projects on the needles (currently: 4) and, if i see something else that catches my interest, i have to drop whatever i'm currently working on, and try to figure out the next project.
this is my current "figure-me-out" obsession: http://www.sheepinthecity.prettyposies.com/archives/000079.html
so i have some gorgeous manos del uruguay yarn that i purchased at this yarn store up in long grove last holiday season - and i have the size 11 brittany birch needles. but, what i don't have is the slightest clue as to how to knit this, to make it look the way that it looks in the photo (nice). i've ripped back my first two rows so many times that i'm just going to have little multicolored yarn chunks scattered all over the place if i can't figure it out! i've googled and googled and googled to see what i can come up with, but, i've just come up empty-handed, every time. as a last resort, i actually e-mailed the blog's author to see what her take is on what i'm doing wrong. so, we'll see what happens with that. in the meantime, though, i think i'll stick with my 1x1 rib scarf that i started yesterday. at least *that* i can handle.
(until i can find something else to knit up, that is...)
