WIP Wednesday (Sooo close)

It was a dark and stormy night.
 
Well, at least a dark and stormy morning. Therefore, a flashtastic picture of being so very close to finishing the class prework for Chocolat. Just need to do those last two lace wheels and some Smyrna stitches and then two more "wrapper" bits (with their lace wheels and Smyrnas).

I really want this done...here's how much: There is a BOX from KnitPicks, that arrived Monday, and I have not opened it. That's right, folks...beautiful unseen yarn resides en mi casa, and I am ignoring it because I know that the pretty preciousssss colors and haze of yarn fumes that will be released will be a HUGE distraction and I just want this thing done.

I promise there will be pictures of actual! yarn! here next week.

Oh, and did I mention that the 2nd class I'm taking in November...after Chocolat...I just found out that has prework, too?? *sob*

Willpower of epic proportion, right there. I'm simultaneously terribly impressed and a little bewildered. Good luck finishing that beautiful piece you're working on, and please show us your new yarn soon. :)

You have a box from KnitPicks in your house and haven't opened it! You have major willpower. I would have been in it before the mailman got back to his truck:)

Your willpower is incredible. DH called me at work today to say two packages arrived for me, and I insisted he open them right and there while I was on the phone.

Wow, you have a box of unopened yarn waiting for you... I am amazed at your willpower!

Melanie said...

WHAT? UNOPENED BOX OF YARN?
Do you have a fever?

AAACCCKK - miserable to have an unopened box of ANYTHING in the house - to be honest I sometimes hold my boxes too as a gift for making it thru a tough day at work. Your Chocolat prework looks good - won't be long now before you're in sampler heaven that is "the Attic" have you been before? Good luck with self restraint in that place. Mel

Picking up my prework tomorrow. I hear it's not too bad tho... just tedious. :-)

Jenny said...

All your pre-work will be well worth it when class begins - Chocolat looks sooo good!
I do what you are doing sometimes too; use a "carrot" to motivate myself to focus on something that I really needs done. (Sometimes, that's the only way I can get my household work done... ;-))
Bubba says hi! =:x

Unopened box? Are you chained to something and can't reach it? Your works looks fabulous. :)
