I spent a good deal of the weekend knitting on the Pink Sweater for Thing Two, and came to the sad conclusion that I’m not going to have it done by Friday. I finished the first sleeve, but not the narrow strip that makes up the front side of the sweater. The second sleeve and front would take tonight and tomorrow evenings. And then I’d still have two lacy front panels to work, not to mention finding twenty tiny-size buttons… ugh. So I won’t be giving them the sweaters this weekend, which had been my hope.

I have two weeks to finish the hexagon blanket I’m crocheting for Gwen’s new baby, if I want to give it to them when I meet the baby for the first time. I think that’s probably the right thing to do. I think I have fourteen or fifteen hexes left to work up, and then the border. It will take some effort and concentration but I am sure that if I put down the sweater and pick up the blanket, that I can get it done in time.

The problem with all this gift knitting is that I’m starting to dislike my favourite hobby, and that’s really sad. I’ve committed to these projects and I will see them through, but then I might take a break…
