Calling Einstein for some mindless knitting

January 18, 2011 1 min read

There have been so many times in the last few weeks that I've just needed to sit down with my knitting and not think at all.  I think that's an indication of stress level, exacerbated by lack of an appropriately mindless project on the needles. Or, it could just be a renewed interest in football with the playoffs and what not. I had some fuchsia Donegal Tweed Chunky hanging around and decided to make it into a new Einstein coat since my current one seems to have been confiscated as a blanket by my youngest son.  I'm making it 1 inch shorter around the bottom (53 stitches).  Here's where I am so far.

That's just over one skein in - it measures about 15 inches so far.  Hmmm... that's 15 down and some 30 or 40 inches to go.  It should be done by Easter.  When is Easter this year anyway?
