homage to the super bloggers

I am constantly amazed by the boundless energy and productivity of the knitting bloggers whose sites I frequent. Some have jobs, some have children, all are busy, and yet they crank out knitted items like there’s no tomorrow! I mean, Bonne Marie has a highly demanding, seemingly high stress job, she commutes (on a bus!), she works on her computer stuff and all her other projects, AND she knits speedily and perfectly while designing new patterns! Kerstin has three children! Claudia is an attorney! How do they do it? I mean, I don’t have children, and I work from home, yet I just plod along stitch by stitch on my knitting projects and can’t seem to get to any of my sewing projects or read any books or clean my house!
Oh, but I finished the back of the Becky Wannabe sweater, finally:

I started the front and must now go finish the tubular cast-on and get my 2 rows for the evening completed.

    I am *so* feeling your pain! sometimes I just feel like I must be taking the short bus to knittingland, or something. maybe most knitbloggers are meth addicts or something?

    I’m addicted to speed. There I said it. 🙂 I’m the slowest knitter in the world and I screw around on the blogs way too much. The kids aren’t mine, I just borrow them for the storyline. I LOVE the addition of the blue in the wanna-be sweater. It really adds “oomph” to it. Are you playin’ dead in this pic?

    oh but see I am envying YOU because you are cooking fabulous inventive things (Anybody who makes their own marshmallows deserves a shrine of their very own…) and your fabulous picture was featured on Chic Knits…it’s a Mutual Admiration Society 🙂

    I am right there with you on the amazing talents and speed of the Super Knitters!
    Most of the time, I find myself spending more time reading the amazing knitting blogs than doing knitting myself (I can surf at work but not knit).
    Ah well, I can aspire one day to their skills or just get the number of their dealer and have them send me some of the magic dust.

    The wannabe sweater is looking great! Love them blue stripes in the middle. Even the dog is impressed!

    Is that a Besinji? (pardon spell). I have a goal of someday writing a book about my brief experience with a member of that breed.

    Heck if I know. I don’t have a job yet and I can barely keep your web site up and running.
