Deadline knitting

There's absolutely nothing like a deadline to motivate me! I agreed to knit a scarf for a long-distance friend who I'll be seeing this weekend, and it's not done yet, but it will be before I see him!

I know a lot of folks hate knitting with an imposed deadline, but I'm finding it invigorating. It's not like the dreaded "Christmas knitting", where there are multiple projects all due on the same day. It's just knitting with a time component, sort of as if it were an event in the Knitting Olympics.

Wow. Knitting Olympics -- that would be awesome! We'll have to think of a list of events.

Pictures of the scarf will follow completion.

I actually do better when I'm trying to make a deadline - real or imaginary. Lately, it's been with baby presents. Either they have to be done before the dreaded shower or before the birth. So far, I'm two for two!
