I love to knit

See this billboard for the Women's Institute? It's hand-knit.

I love to knit, too, but man ... more than 130 miles of yarn?

Actually, now that I think about it, I probably have about that, if not more, in my stash. And, it's taken me AT LEAST 250 hours to make that damned Celtic Icon sweater that's still not finished.

Knitting Should Be Fun

Knitting should be fun, or at least relaxing. But it's driving me nutso. I'm making this:
But it doesn't look like that at all. Well, first off, I'm making it all in one color, cream, but aside from that, it's GIANT. Boo. I think it might have to be a coat instead of a sweater. Now, if I can just meet someone 6 foot 7 inches or so, he or she will have a lovely coat. Again, boo.
