I need a new project.
I have no motivation to pick up Maude (I love it, I don't know why I can't motivate to finish. . . I'm so close!).
Jake's Boyfriend Socks had a mistake in the cable. I ripped it out once, and made the same mistake, only I knit further before I noticed it. Not wanting to rip everything out again (total pain to get 84 sts back on a Sz 1 needle again!) I dropped just the 6 stitches in the cable down 14 rows, and I really don't have the patience to work on that.
My Baltimore Socks, though I love the yarn, are not doing it for me since I have to rip back in the gusset, so they continue to mock me in my knitting basket.
Bob's hat - I'm not gonna finish it by Friday, so why work on it? He doesn't need it until October :) (Come on, my blog is titled procrastination. . . . .)
So, I need something else!
(Summerlin #2 ended up as a no-go. . . after winding what could honestly be the most poorly skeined yarn ever - so tangled from the start I couldn't get it on the swift! - I finally read the label and the Pima cotton is and wash/dry flat. . . not so much practical for kiddie wear. On the plus side, the cotton is beyond soft and lovely, so I need to find something nice to do with it)
1 - Re-cast on for Lelah - It's warm, so I would wear it when done!
2 - Sizzle (I started a swatch in January, have not progressed - link is Rav link, the typepad seems to be down) - It's perhaps to warm to wear when finished (assuming I actually finish in the summer) because of the Alpaca.
3 - February Lady Sweater - I think the Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK will be perfect for this!
4 - Something else altogether! Give me a suggestion! (but no socks - I'm waiting for new needles from KnitPicks to do 2-at-a-time for my next pair)
I finally got around to taking pictures of recent acquisitions.
My Mama Llama Club Shipment (sniff. . . the last one . . sniff. . .)
The dark green is Bamboo Lux. The lighter green is pure Bamboo (DK).
My Mama Llama Contest Prize (yay!)
Perfect Sock, in color Regal.
Two recent Swap-Bot Swaps:
CTH Supersock DK in Blue - Green (love this blue green color!)
Alpaca with a Twist Baby Twist (total of 220 yds, anyone have a suggestion of what to do with it?!)
