Maybe it has something to do with this rotten perimenopausal thing… It might have something to do with the fact that it’s really tough for me to justify the acquisition of any more yarn until I make a dent in the stuff I have already.
What I truly feel it is, though, is that I just have a bunch of things I’d really like to make. And by-the-way, there are worse UFO offenders out there than I am about to come. I have seen a few “project galleries” on Rav that have twenty or more projects like, 20% under way, so call me capricious, but here I go…
I’ve had the Misti Pima Silk yarn for this Something Red cardi since last August. I need the sweater. I want to make it.
It’s actually going fairly quickly; I’m at the point where I can place the sleeve stitches on holders while I make the body. Surely the ribbing will slow me down a wee bit, since I purl weirdly, but on the other hand, once I get into the rhythm of ribbing, I’m okay. With any luck, I’ll have this finished in a few weeks.
Next up, is this delightful Biscuit Blanket, which I’m making as a shower gift. I actually have to make three of these, so I suspect I’ll have totally memorized the pattern by the time I start the second one. And the KnitPicks new Simply Cotton Yarn is really delightful to use. It’s every bit as nice to knit with as Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton, a wonderful price, and so soft to the touch I’d like to make a cardi for my kiddo.
And this little Biscuit Blanket was the perfect project to use with my brand new knitting goodie:
The next two projects are for my Bug. I have to make these now, ’cause if I don’t she’ll be too big to fit in them, ’cause I have just enough yarn in my stash to make ’em. That said, I’ll have to swatch for these before I get going. That will part of my Memorial Day activities.
I think I’m gonna be busy this weekend!
