talk me down

Ashley’s wedding shower is on Sunday, and somehow I am still convinced that I could finish her shawl in time to give at the shower. This is clearly folly. But this is how my internal dialogue is going:

I have finished just over 17 of 30 repeats of the pattern. That means I have 13 to go. Plus the entire border. And blocking.

But it’s the weekend! I will have some time.

You work, and have errands to run, and cleaning and other things.

Maybe if I modified the border to make it smaller?

This has to stop.

Ooh, I could bring it to work tomorrow. I can knit and talk on the phone at the same time, kind of.

Someone please stage an intervention.

I bet I can do it. I’ll think about those border changes….there’s totally enough time.
