I usually only work on one knitting project at a time, and I almost never start a project and don't finish it, but apparently I'm in the mood to change my "usual" behavior.
It started when I accidentally dropped everything (including the knitting project I had just started) and read all seven Harry Potter books consecutively. I didn't plan on doing it; it just sort of happened. And then, when I finished the reading frenzy, I still didn't hop back on the knitting wagon. I spent a lot of time thinking about things I don't normally spend time thinking about. (For example, why did I spend hours designing a new iPad app in my head?) All in all, it's been a weird couple of months.
Anyway, I started knitting the braided headband pictured below a very long time ago, and it will probably only take me an hour to finish the whole thing if I ever get around to doing it.
But when I picked up some needles again this week, it wasn't to finish that headband. It was to make my boyfriend a really cool birthday present!
OK, to be honest, maybe I'll end up thinking it's more cool than he thinks it is, but I really hope he likes it. It's made out of the Colorado Avalanche's team colors, after all, and he loves that team. There is the minor hiccup that they are teetering on the edge of being kicked out of the playoffs just before the birthday, but I guess we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
I'll be posting pictures of the finished hat soon!
And maybe I'll finish the braided headband after that? We'll see...
Do you have any half-finished knitting projects lying around your house these days?
