Swatches don't count as new projects...


...right? Because if I can just make a ripple stitch afghan swatch, then I'm not goofing off from finishing the two other knitting projects I have going that desperately need to be finished if I am to continue to enjoy the good opinion of certain family members.

And if it's not a full-size afghan, and is definitely wonky in places where I've made a mistake or two, then it's all part of learning and not a case of crocheting something exciting and new. Right? And I'm using yarn leftover from other projects, and not high-quality yarn at that.

I mean, swatches can sometimes end up as useful pieces in addition to being swatches. At least, that's what I'm telling myself.

All those justifications makes sense to me. Besides, what's one new project. Just call it a stress-reliever!

Yeah, you can call it a swatch now, but when it's finished I think you might have to call it a lap blanket. :)
