Knitting

I've been on vacation for over a week now, and it's been good. I've gotten around to working on a few of the many half-finished projects lying around the house. Writing, sewing projects, stacks of books to read and closets to clean out... I have a lot to do.

... Which is why I've spent most of my time on my ass, knitting a vest.

When I think about how much time I've spent on it this week, I feel terribly guilty (though not as guilty as when I spend several hours playing video games). Knitting is easier than making sewing patterns or sketching. It's something I can do while listening to the radio or my stupid telenovela. If the repetition didn't make my hands, shoulders, and eyes hurt so much, I could literally do it for hours on end.

Considering how much knitting I've done so far, I can safely say I have been doing just that.

I know that I'm using knitting as a way to avoid doing everything else. Writing demands too much, cleaning is boring and allergy-triggering, and that stack of books is downright formidable. There's just too much to do, and if I didn't focus on this one thing, I'll probably spend my time either flittering from one task to the next or staring off into space, too indecisive to do anything else.

...

That said, I made some progress with "A Series of Events" (Yay!), only to get sidetracked by, well, everything (Boo!). I am having trouble with the scene,, specifically the moment Snape and Potter face each other, each waiting for the other to speak, before they're interrupted, romcom-style, by a wild Weasley.






My doodling just gets better and better!

Considering the trouble I'm having with this precise moment, I wonder if I shouldn't just scrap the scene and try again. Cleaning the slate has helped my writing a lot more times than I can say. However, I don't think the whole scene is completely awful. It just needs work.

And I have to stop knitting to give it the attention it needs.
