, I've been feeling a little overwhelmed by my projects lately. In an effort to regain a little control, I decided last night to catch up on my tivo'd TV shows and work very diligently on my Roundabout Leaf Tank.* Perhaps it was seeing that Grumperina is almost finished
with her Pentagon Pullover that gave me a kick in the you-know-where. So, I really did work away, and made astounding progress ... when I realized that I had somehow managed to lose two stitches. Flippin' gnomes
! This morning, I frogged back almost everything I accomplished last night. Sigh. I've also frogged the Trellis Scarf. I got to those "Knit 7 togethers" and realized that my needles were just not up to that task. Sigh some more.
Oh well, it's not as though I don't have plenty of things to work on. Let's take a little inventory.
1. The Roundabout Leaf Tank.
Tale of Woe related above.
2. The Dishcloths
. Well, these are done, and in Project Spectrum Green. Bad weather for photos lately, though.
. The other day, my mother asked how this project was going. I bought the yarn with birthday money from my aunts, and I think this has made Mom especially interested in this sweater. I was actually a little embarrassed to admit that I'm not working on it right now. I really need to start this again.
4. The Blue-Green striped socks
. I'm about halfway to the heel on the first sock.
5. The Irish Hiking Scarf
. Only pulled out in moments of extreme anxiety, or if I am dwelling on a problem. It sort of clears the head. I may always keep one of these on the needles, for emergencies. Whether I finish it or not is irrelevant. It's pure process knitting.
6. The Turbulence U-Neck Pullover
. Aha! I snuck one in there! I actually swatched for this right after getting Knitting Nature, because I have yarn for this in the stash. I put it aside when I got my yarn for the Leaf Tank. Maybe I should start this, though. It takes me for-flippin-ever to finish a sweater, and it would be nice to wear it this year.
7. My Amazing Lace Teammate
. As I mentioned, due to equipment failure, Trellis Scarf had to be thrown off the team. I'm looking for a replacement. Candidates are the Flower Basket Shawl
, going back to the Adamas Shawl
, the Shetland Triangle from WrapStyle
, possibly Kiri
, the Mountain Stream Scarf
.** I could work any of them from my stash. Scouting reports on these potential teammates, anyone?* By the way, Monday's episode of "How I Met Your Mother" was possibly the funniest yet. Comments, Jessalu?** Sampler Stole? What Sampler Stole? Seriously, I think I need to tackle something a little simpler first.
