Overly Ambitious?!?

Have you every had a really good idea?  I mean a really good one.  And then you find out you might be a tad bit over confident, overly ambitious?  You know, like at the all you can eat buffet.  The plate isn’t that big; one little bite of this; just a taste of that… eyes definitely bigger than your stomach. That is me with my new craft project.  

My friend showed me her French knitter (knitting dolly), and it looked easy and fun. What an easy thing to do while binge watching Netflix. So I learned how to use it in about 30 seconds and started knitting icord. I made a coaster and it looked great.  The I started thinking, “I need a new rug for the bedroom.”  I saw some beautiful icord rugs on Pinterest, “I can do this!”

I bought yarn and a bigger French knitter and got started.  Two weeks in, I have 9.5 inch rug.  I am going for 3.5 feet in diameter. So, I am about 1/10 of the the way done, and hope I can finish in 2017.


Anybody have a good Netflix recommendation?  I need a few!
