Good Riddance September

Take a good look at this photo…

Pretty things all in a row

,
Take a look at all the pretty things I knit this year.  Gorgeous sweaters hanging happily in the shop, just waiting for the weather to turn.  I am proud of the sweaters, I am.  I am proud of them, but I am sick of them too. I am embarrassed to even say it.
.
I am a glass half full kind of girl (I think I have talked about that before).  I didn’t have a doubt that I would be able to handle all 12 sweaters.  I always thought I would finish them.  I struggled through a few months (March…I am looking at you)  but still got them finished.  Until this month.  September.
.
I wasn’t super excited about knitting a fingering weight sweater, but I was pretty sure I could do it.
.
I didn’t take into account a bunch of drama this month that would take me away from happy knitting.  I frantically stockinette stitched while thinking of all the crazy things that were happening.  Every time I even thought about knitting the sweater, all the negative emotions came up again.  Wierd…I know.  I never anticipated that this 12 in 12 game would get the better of me.  But this month.  September.  It did.
.
So, take a closer look at the wall of sweaters…there is one that is still in a project bag (yes even I use cheap plastic bags for project bags).  Carly thought she would be funny and hang up September on the hanger.  I think it is perfect there.  As much as I don’t want to admit it.  I am human too:)

September Sweater

Bring on October!

*I want to say that my drama was mild in comparison to things that other people I love were going through.  I whined way more than I had a right to:)
