Tis’ the season…for knitting…

It’s happening again.  A few days ago I was in the basement organizing my clutter and I came across my insane stash of yarn.  Now the reason it’s insane is because I’m not actually a knitter- and someone who’s not really a knitter should not have this much yarn.  However, I have enjoyed the process of knitting for lengthy amounts of time, knitting up rectangular anything because that’s all I can do.  I’m just not a pattern knitter and I wish and hope I will someday be able to open up a knitting book, pointer finger to the design of my choice and just begin knitting away.  But, that’s for another time, and I digress.  Opening those Rubbermaids was the equivalent of opening a Pandora’s Box.  I now have The Fever.  I want to knit.  And knit.  Now.  I can so relate to the quirky woman in this little animation-one of my favorites that illustrates The Fever.

    1. Hi Alison! Welcome to my blog! I know, I just want to be able to read a pattern…it’s like a foreign language to me. I just want to be able to do this-it’s on my bucket list, lol. I think this might be my year to find someone to teach me. Three’s some poncho’s and other things I’d love to make. I just might have a stab at it and try. Good luck to you in your knitting saga!



  1. LOL! Thanks for posting this! It was hilarious and totally describes the ‘fever’. I go through it every winter and like you, I can only do squares. This year I have put the knitting needles away after one attempt and my eldest son telling me that I never finish my knitting projects and have taken up a cross stitch under the conditions that I have to finish it within 8 months (according to my son). Happy New Year Emily.


  2. That was interesting. I was even silly enough to gasp as she was fighting from going over the cliff, lol…. I am like that with scissors. I look around thinking, hmm what can I cut??


  3. I learned to knit in years ago but stopped for years and forgot how to even do my usual squares. So this year, my resolution is to learn again because I want to at least be able to whip up scarves, and if I’m really lucky, caps, to donate. Think it’s too much if I throw in socks too?


    1. Hi! Welcome to my blog! I think you should definately begin knitting squares again. And as far as socks go, I marvel at anyone who can negotiate three needles at one time and actually know what to do!
