The jittery knitter has landed with not one, not two but 4 new projects. This seems to be working for me, sort of. Are you a monogamous knitter? Why? What does that do for you? I truly have no idea how that works.
As I look around me I see:
A shawl I am re-purposing into a new shawl. I loved knitting the first shawl last summer but I just don’t wear it (probably because I never sewed the ends in, duh) so I decided since I really like the colours, to knit a second shawl. More triangles because I am obsessed.
I was knitting a plain toe-up sock and saw a photo on instagram of the Coriolis sock by Cat Bordhi. I have the New Pathways for Sock Knitters book so that’s what I’m going to knit. I just happened to be at the exact spot to jump right in. A good sign? I love the swirling pattern it’s going to make.
I’ve started my All You Need scarf pattern by Heidi Kirrmaier which I’m going to make into a blanket. Three letters done, almost. They are fun to see form up. I don’t know whether to make two sets of letters or just one for a blanket.What do you think?
I knit half a sleeve of the Nurtured pattern and … not working for me. The pattern is lovely but the wool I’m using is too thick and the slip stitch pattern ends up very stiff. It would be lovely in a thinner worsted yarn. For another time perhaps. The wool I have is the perfect colour, dark emerald green, so after looking around I decided to knit the Carbeth by Kate Davies. Oh my, the wool is loving this. It’s soft and easy and I just love knitting round and round.
The second Build a Bigger V is unfortunately stalled right at the finish line. All these new projects have pushed it to be back of the queue (which may be one of the reasons this startitis is going on). I’m feeling very guilty so that’s on my schedule for next week. Get it done (not my best thing, LOL). All I have to do is sew in ends, work the neckband and then find some buttons and sew them on with as little bloodshed as possible. I can do this. I can do this. I can do this.
How about you? One project or many? Where are you on the spectrum?
