Sometimes I don’t know why I let myself in for doing things the way I do.
Maybe it’s because I really do want to help yet forget how ’annoyed’ I become when I realise others aren’t pulling their weight.
Remember ‘The Green Beanie Christmas Tree’ – yes, it was only one month (5 weeks) ago it was suggested – other members were all for it so I set aside my reluctance to knit ’big things’ and began. Completed several and cast on again
Then news comes through that several in the group have ’dropped out’ preferring to make other items……but ……if we follow the suggested timeline set out in the leader’s ‘revised spreadsheet’ (even if it means each of us have to knit more) the tree should be stocked in time!
This is now beginning to sound like a full time production line – not just volunteers knitting some donations of winter hats for the homeless and displaying them on a tree shaped frame.
My suggestion to make the tree smaller was not well received……
Lets just say the thrill of this venture has worn off. I’ve misplaced my long needles and am getting fed up losing stitches off the end of the needles……there are over 100 in all!
I’m beginning to lose interest in knitting these green beanies. There, I’ve said it!
