Last night I worked late into the night to get the second sleeve done on my Linho. It had not been started but after doing the last post, not knowing what I wanted to work on, I convinced myself to finish that project. At ESK, there’s a badge for “Long Haul Project”. It’s something that has to have been started at least 9 months ago. We all know I have plenty of those long hibernating projects. I had looked at Linho in my projects and saw that I had started it in September so I almost went digging for an older project so I could get the badge but in the end, the project bag was sitting right in front of me so I grabbed it, removing the sleeve stitches from the waste yarn and started knitting.
I finished the book I was listening to. Vince had already gone to bed. I was very sleepy. Thinking I only had the ribbing left to do, I was determined to finish that sleeve last night . . but I couldn’t. I got too tired so I went to bed, still thinking I should get up and knit 14 more rows just to be done, but I didn’t so I finished it this morning. I still have to weave in the ends, soak and block.
But, as I was picking up the living room, I thought . . I could not have started that sweater in September because it sat around forever and I knitted the first sleeve when I was at Chad’s in October. I went back to my Ravelry projects.
It was September alright but it was 2017 when I started it so it will earn me the Long Haul badge!
I’ll get some photos soon.
