I go a little crazy every time I get close to finishing a project, especially a big project. I get a little obsessed, and I kind of lose touch with the passage of time.
It’s not ideal, but it happens. And, it happened to me last night. I was finishing up a sweater (a super secret sweater you’ll see later), and I had about six inches of sleeve left to knit. I sat down to work on it for a few hours, thinking I could power through before it got too late. I kept measuring it, counting my stitches and rows, convincing myself that I was almost done.
Until the clock hit 11, and my husband reminded me it was past my bedtime.
After a little whining on my part and cajoling on his, I went to sleep, my last cuff mere rows from completion.It’s probably good he made me go to bed- when I get to this point in a project, if I’m left to my own devices, I stay up as late as necessary to finish. (I remember once accidentally staying up until 5 in the morning on a week night, just so I could finish a dress I was sewing. That wasn’t a great idea.)
Anyway, my knitting was still waiting for me this morning. And after a cup of tea and a little breakfast, I’ve finished my sweater. Now, it’s off to be blocked!Do you ever lose track of time while working on a project?
