Poncho Mountain


Poncho Mountain
Originally uploaded by Disentangled.
I find the sight of the poncho mountain as it currently resides on my coffee table, highly unsettling. Its ginormous in the first place - I have left a couple balls of yarn in the picture for some scale. Its floppy and unruly. And spewing tenticles from all directions.

What am I supposed to do with this? The task of weaving in all those loose ends is daunting, yet it must be done. In fact this task has become such a monkey that any time I have a couple moments to spare, I just sit there. I forbid myself to work on my baby blanket when I know I need to devote my energy to completing this almost-done-poncho. Yet, I can't get myself to work on it, so I do nothing. So, right now I need some words of encouragement (before my husband starts to complain :-)

It is rather, um, large? But, it looks like it will be fantasically warm and very soft! Just keep plugging along..I once had a shawl I swore cut inches off itself every night..it was the "neverending shawl project", but eventually, it was done.

I've seen your husband complain. Isn't the thought of it motivation enough???

Well, I shared this post, along with your comment, with your brother (actually he saw your name over my shoulder and wanted to know what you had said). And this is what he said "wait, that's in the living room right now?" He hadn't noticed because apparently he's not used to seeing the surface of our coffee table.

YOUKANDOIT!! It's just one of those things that look scary (because of its ginormouty), but it's not as bad once you start...you just have to take the first step. :) You've tackled much more intimidating tasks...it will be okay!
