One lousy skein

It really wasn’t supposed to be complicated or take very long.  It was only one skein – 380 yards, 1140 feet, 13,680 inches, less than a quarter of a mile.  I could knit that much in a few hours, standing on one foot, maybe even blindfolded.  So why has it taken me nearly 3 weeks?  It’s not that I’m ignoring it.  I’m working at it.  It’s not that I’m using teeny needles.  I’m using 9’s (5.5mm).  It’s not that I hate the yarn.  I adore it.  The yarn itself is glorious and the color magnificent.  So what’s the problem?  Okay, so there are a lot of things going on around the homestead, but that’s always the case.  It never stopped me before.

I went into it thinking I’d be done in a week, 10 days tops.  Nearly three weeks later and  I’m wondering why I throw these things out into the universe.  I’m convinced that as soon as I say it or think it, the universe smirks and then proceeds to plot various ways to throw wrenches into my plans.
