Jennifer is having a contest for her 777 posts. We have to list our 7 deadly knitting sins. Here are mine:
Pride: My first sweater was To Dye For, from the Stitch and Bitch. I was knitting it and everything was going well. I was so proud of myself. My first sweater! It's easy! I'm not making any mistakes! And then I got to the sleeves, realized I would run out of yarn, went to the LYS... they didn't have any more in stock and I never was able to find some online. I finished the sleeves in another colour just because I wanted the damn thing finished. But I wasn't so proud anymore.
Envy: Oh I frequently suffer from sweater envy. Because so far, I haven't made one sweater that I've liked. So all of you who are making beautiful, well-fitted, perfectly seamed sweaters: I envy you!
Gluttony: I think my sock yarn stash is starting to show how much of a glutton I am...
Lust: I discovered yarn lust the first time I went to Effiloche and saw the cashmere. And I have indulged, oh yes I have.
Anger: The blue cardigan of doom. Have I mentionned that it's been frogged?
Greed: Jennifer, I can't help but give the same answer you did. I'm extremely greedy with patterns, and knitting magazines. I know I won't make 90% of the patterns I have, but I need them and I'm keeping them! They're mine. My precioussss.
Sloth: The Kiri shawl. I started it in May 2005! And I still think I'm going to finish it someday...
I'm quite the sinner, aren't I? ;)
