…but only on Thursdays!
About a year ago (July 14th, 2011 to be exact) I made this little agreement with myself to only knit this project on Thursdays, which allowed me to name it my Thursday Coat. It’s really the popular Einstein Coat from Sally Melville’s book, The Knitting Experience – The Knit Stitch.
For almost a FULL YEAR, I have kept my promise to myself – even though I have been sorely tempted at times. Now there are only 2 more Thursdays before I reach the 1 year mark. So, if I want to keep things all neat and tidy and finish it up in ONE YEAR, I will either have to knit like a banshee the next 2 Thursdays or BREAK MY PROMISE.
Pause… (***thinking***) OKAY, AFTER ALMOST A FULL YEAR, THERE NO WAY AM I GOING TO BREAK MY PROMISE!
So there’s my answer: I will have to KNIT LIKE A CRAZY WOMAN on July 5th and 12th to wrap things up in 1 year. I know the world won’t come to an end if I don’t finish up in one year, but who doesn’t like a challenge??? And, with one sleeve almost done that leaves me with just one sleeve and the finishing work – quite possible don’t you think?
