I started with a big container that was labelled Knitting In Progress. I found two projects that had been started. One was a fair isle cardigan. I had all the wool, needles and pattern. That went to Vision Australia where some volunteers will apparently take it and finish it off to sell. Whew.
The other looked much easier to go back to. It was a jumper, the back almost finished.
I have discovered - rediscovered - the relaxation of knitting in front of the tv. And that phenomenon of thinking I'll just finish this row, which will take about 15 minutes, or this section which will only take a few minutes. Hence the thought that I will probably sit on to watch shows that I would ordinarily get up and go away for.
Actually, it has already happened - I started the pattern all over again for the front and have realised I didn't do the last part of the back properly. Not to worry, I won't be able to see it when I am wearing it. But I decided I should try to get it right for the front. That meant lots of pulling out and counting of stitches as I tried to get into the swing again. An extra hour of 'watching' some show or other while I got it all sorted out.
