Mindless Still

The mindless  would be my knitting to which I am referring.  But if you thought it meant me - well, you wouldn't be the first.

This weekend, we had some driving to do to attend a family reunion.  With lots of  passenger-seat time, I finished tier two of Tink's Twirly Skirt and about an inch of tier three. I am in love with the colour of my Tink's but having never before knit a skirt, I am reserving judgement on the look of my hand knit skirt in the real world of wearing.  The range of imagined looks runs the gamut from hand-made/hippie to high-end, one-of-a-kind.  The latter has been my vision and inspiration and obviously my aim, but as  said  -  judgement reserved.

Regardless of the outcome - rip it or wear it  - the knitting of Tink's is FUN!  Round and round and round.  Easy peasy with  colour changes providing the motivation to go faster, faster, faster.

Here it is so far.

The way you express reserving judgement for a knitted skirt is how I await the fate of every FO!

My vote is for high end, one of a kind...

I'm thinking high end too. Its lovely.

I completely agree with you about technology driving the need for mindless knitting. I have the wifi, I have the wee portable device, I have the laptop. What I don't have is a cell phone. I'd like to stay that way for a while longer if I can. My fondest wish is that they are an expensive passing fad. I think I am wrong though, more is the pity.
