binge [binj] noun: a short period devoted to indulging in an activity to excess.
knitting binge [knit.ing. binj] noun: what I did last weekend.
After purchasing Interweave's Fall Knit magazine while waiting for the pharmacy last week, I thought that maybe I would try one of their patterns--Rosamund's Cardigan.
And by "try," I mean that I knit for five days straight until I completed it.
I was a machine. Eventually I had to take ibuprofen because my shoulders ached from knitting overkill.
My husband called me "spinster" more than once, and was quite unhappy that I was so consumed.
But then I finished it, and all was well with the world. Because after attempting Five cardigan patterns, this really was THE ONE that worked! Hip Hip Hooray!
I can't wait to knit another one.
But maybe I'll give it a few days.
