there had better be a damn lot of knitting going on over there!!"
Umm, yeah, with all the yarn I've brought home lately, the crazy voice in my head has started to lecture me again. Luckily, I've been in the mood to knit and knit and knit lately . . . must be all the cold weather now that October is here. What, it's still August??? Are you sure???? Hmm, it doesn't feel like August.
Anyway, on to the knitting. First, there is something you should know. Despite valiant efforts by my parents to raise me right, it seems that if you all decide to jump off a bridge, I'd be right there with you, snapping on my swim cap. Without further ado, my latest FO.
I'm not even going to write up the specs on this, since EVERYONE has already knit one. I will say that I used the lovely Peaches and Creme yarn Missy sent me along with Lion Cotton for the "bumpies". I will be knitting more of these!!!
I also have been doing some sewing, and worked up that zippered bag for larger projects. It didn't come out great, but it's nicer than the Zip-Locs I usually use. I made it out of fabric and a zipper I found in my stash, so the cost (free) was right in my price range. And the project was easy enough that I didn't even need a pattern.
So, what's on the needles? Well, a whole bunch of stuff!!
I know, that's an awful lot of stuff!! But I do have a plan. Some goals. I should knit on each project every day. Even if it's only one or two rows, at least I'm one or two rows closer to finishing. Then, I can knit on which ever project is calling out to me the most. Oh yes and I should finish one sock every week. Umm, yeah, we'll see how that all goes!!
What's in that crazy pile 'o knittin'?? Well, clockwise from the top:
- one completed Mystery Sock
- the beginnings of my Almost Argyle sock (which got frogged and restarted late last night because the Latvian Twist cuff needed another try)
- the second front of Sunrise Circle (did you forget about her? I almost did)
- pretty little Koigu sock (which will be the latest in the Classic Rock Socks collection)
- and the beginnings of a Perfect Pie Shawl
