Okay, so when I'm stressed (or bored) I get all crazy. Here is what I have done. I currently have FIVE projects going on!! My secret pal's HP scarf. Yeah, it's still not done. However, I just got the last hank of Cascade 9404 for it!! Which means I can finally finish it and get it out to her. I bought her a little present to go with it, because I feel awful about taking so long. Actually, I ordered it off Ewe Knit Kits because my LYS didn't have anymore. And uh, I...er...um bought a skein of Lorna's Laces? I had to! The yarn gnomes made me! Okay, fine, I succumbed to peer pressure. lol Nobody is perfect, right? She gave me a free tape measure too, which is cool.
Alright, so that's one. Of course, there is my mom's top. Which I am now convinced will be like my Cleaves. I've been knitting those for so long, I just stopped counting them as being in progress. They are on perpetual hold. lol I'm trying really hard not to do that, I want this thing done! And there will be hundreds of pictures of the completed work! Anyway, I'm still using the "my fingers snag the yarn" excuse. Whatever works right? That makes two.
Project three, Bamboo ankle socks. They remind me of my favorite pair of jeans. The colors do, I mean. So I held my jeans up to the toes for the picture. If you look closely you can see some of my store bought socks, and you'll notice my affection for cute socks. Those I have just been working on every now and then, round here, round there. You know. My real goal has been finishing my Aunt Marcie's slipper socks. I just have to do the stretchy cuffs and a million inches of i-cord (okay, 36) then I'll be done!
One, two, three, four...one more.
Ah, that's right. Last night, in my frustration after casting on a few times to start that i-cord, I grumbled and put everything away in my knitting bag. At the bottom I discovered the black Cascade 220 I had wound into a ball for the Kittyville hat I'm going to make Scott. !Instead of seed stitch, I did 1x1 ribbing. It looks slightly more manly, I think. For the ears I think I will do a garter edging and stockinette. If I can find some scrap pink, I might even make the insides of the ears pink. That ought to be fun
