On the third Monday of the month a group of enthusiastic knitters meet in the Resource Room at the Duxbury Free Library. From 6:00 - 8:00 you can find knitters of various skill levels with yarn between their fingers. We would love you to join us. If you can't, follow us here!

My latest project is a Lingering Doubts Shawl, designed by Gabi Bolland. 

I'm using Pediboo sock yarn from Frog Tree. The pattern is a 6 row repeat with a row of purl after each lace row. I used some of my brain cells to memorize the pattern, but now it's firmly etched in my brain . . . and I realize I have 47 more repeats to do.  (Can you hear my heavy sigh?)

I also have a pile of Jo Sharp yarn that I thought would make a great cowl using the linen stitch. Do you see where I'm going with this? I am on the verge of creating a UFO. The infamous 'unfinished object'. 

Maybe I'll get an audio book at the library today. I'll listen to Harlan Coben or Janet Evanovich tell me a story while I knit away on my shawl . . . and I won't start the cowl. . . I'll let you know if it works. 

Any advice? What do you do when you get tired of a project?
