Lazy Bones

A while back I announced with great fanfare that I was ripping out Lindsay (which had been created by ripping out Francine) in order to make Tina. I signed up for Alison's Spring Fling-a-long and eagerly got started.

I started with some leftovers of the Denim Silk, but that didn't get me very far before I had to start dissecting Lindsay. I ripped the front, gave the yarn a bath and kept knitting.

The smart thing would have been to rip ALL of Lindsay at the same time, bathe ALL of the yarn at the same time and then start knitting. But I didn't, I only did half. Why? Because I am lazy.

I got halfway up the front of Tina before I had to stop for lack of usable yarn. Did I then rip the rest of Lindsay? No. Why? Because not only am I lazy, but I am also easily distracted. Why go through the tedious process of ripping and washing yarn when I could be working on my mom's Waikiki Tank? Or the log cabin blanket?

Hello, I have the attention span of a gnat. Nice to meet y... hey, is that an ice cream truck?

Anyway, I finally did it. Lindsay is officially No More, and this yarn has been rinsed and wound into balls. Now if I can only stop making so many dang mistakes on the cable pattern, Tina should make her debut very soon!
