The answer to the question is…


Here is a recap of January’s Knitting Marathon Day

Hours spent:

  • knitting – 16 hrs, 26 mins
  • sleeping – 6 hrs, 7 mins
  • doing something else (blogging, eating, picture-taking,etc) – 3 hrs, 42 mins

Lessons Learned:

  • Pick projects that use BIG needles
  • Put the healthy snacks on top
  • If after 3 hrs you need a ruler w/mm’s to measure your progress, move on to another project

Revelations Revealed:

  • Measure twice, cut once rule CAN be applied to knitting – “read pattern twice, TINK* less”
  • Beware of patterns that begin with the name, SNAIL or Tortoise, etc
  • The number ZERO is smaller than the number 10-1/2

*TINK = knitting backwards = un-knitting = backwards progress = less forward progress = @#$%!

  1. Well, I just figured out how in the world to see the pictures of your projects. First of all, you are SO funny and SO talented and pick GREAT projects/colors. OH, MY GOSH!

    Congratulations, and PLEASE post the finished products!!! I am hoping to have your inspiration jump-start another knitting binge (okay—knitting habit) rather than the fickle knitter I’ve been.

    Awesome work, Cheryl. Anyone would be thrilled to do what you are able to do. By the way—where was the cat?

    1. Laurie,
      Custer our cat seemed to recognize I was on a mission and stayed off my lap. 🙂

      I am hoping to schedule one Marathon Knitting Day per month – not always during the week! I’ll keep you posted on the next one.

      BTW, how is your beautiful pink sweater coming along???
