About a year ago I was inspired to knit a simple lace pattern t-shirt for my goddaughter. It is a great pattern, one that is a bit more grown up and fashionable, but still quite age appropriate. I zoomed through the knit quickly and bound off excitedly. And after that either I slipped into a coma or I began the world's longest soujourn through the depths of procrastination the planet has ever seen. All I needed to do was weave in the ends. That's it. I didn't have to steek anything, I didn't have to pick up stitches and knit a trim, I didn't even have to really block the thing since it looks great as is (but I will). One year. To weave in ends. Wow, I suck.
Needless to say, what once fit a 5 year old a year ago, no longer fits a 6 year old today. Luckily I have a dancing 3 year old ballerina that will get some use out of it (for a couple years to come).
Is it too late to declare a New Year's resolution? I WILL FINISH WHAT I STARTED! No procrastination. No more unfinished objects lying in the ether of "almost done" land. Eh, it's almost February, it's too late. I'll resolute next year....
