It's just not going to happen.

So I joined the knitting olympics, and I was all excited, and I cast on and started working and everything.... and then what happened? Well, we decided to move the wedding from next July (2007) to July of THIS YEAR. There were a lot of reasons why we ended up making that decision, the two biggest reasons were that 1. planning a wedding from Greece? what?!?! that would be insane! and 2. because the wedding has to happen at a very specific time, our lives were completely planned out practically to the day until July 2007.

This decision was made on the Sunday after the big cast-on (as in 2 days). We immediately had to begin looking seriously for a location that we could book right away and used all of our free time to either research or visit. Also we had to find a photographer IMMEDIATELY and begin designing invitations and all kinds of things because instead of having 17 months, we now have 5!

Needless to say, my knitting was absolutely not my top priority, which is highly unfortunate. But the good news is that we booked a location AND a photographer AND i bought my wedding dress AND we designed our invitations all in the last week!

My new goal is to finish one sock - I am about halway done at this point, and it will honestly be quite the challenge for me to finish even one sock. I'm going to try my very very best to do that! I'm still sad I won't completely fulfill my goal, but what can you do? Weddings are a serious business people. And holy crap, I'm getting married in 5 months!!!
