Suddenly, I have around 8 WIPs! I don't know how this happened. I don't remember starting most of them. My brain has been a little scrambled lately, as I rushed to finish a class a week ahead of schedule, write a research paper and read and study. Work got a little hectic, and I think I was starting simple projects to take to work for meetings and such. Today I took stock, and found that on top of about five WIPs laying around, I started three new ones!
It's a very simple pattern, and knits up in about an afternoon. It has a cute little turtleneck, too. It's from "Stylish Knits for Dogs."
Below is a scarf with the yarn I dyed a week or so ago. It's a cable pattern from the Reader's Digest Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches. I meant for this to be for our Christmas gift exchange at work, but it didn't happen. Between the cold I caught and the
paper that was due, it languished.
the Wonder Why gal. It is too big, even for my big noggin, but I wanted something that wouldn't press on my hair and make it flat (I spend ten minutes fixing it in the morning, then squash a hat on it to go outside and walk the dog).
I am now eagerly awaiting three packages ... two books and a calendar from Interweave, a new trindle spindle, and the "Spin Off Exotic Fiber Sampler 10: Qiviut, Cashmere, Baby Camel, Cashmere Mulberry Silk, Cashmere Tussah Silk, Cream Yak Down, Baby Camel Tussah Silk, Yak Tussah Silk, Baby Suri Alpaca, Top Roving Spinning Fiber 4.75oz"
C'mon! Yak down?! Really? I can't wait!
I have discovered something very important about myself. Every time I swear that I will NOT purchase any more yarn or fiber until I've used up what I have, within 3 days I am on Etsy, ordering something sheared off of some animal. So the only solution to this, is to stop swearing off buying more fiber!
