Whenever I get more than 2 projects on the needles, I start feeling flighty and distractable. That is why I sidelined the red Trekking socks in favor of Mom's socks to begin with:
I am making decent time on them, and thanks to the luscious STR, they are never too far from my hands. In the above photo you see evidence of my only complaint against this yarn - the balls always-always fall apart on me! Its almost as if the yarn is too round and rolls off itself - anyone know the real reason this happens and/or how to prevent it?
My second project is my Celtic Dreams, you know - the sweater that'll help me be camouflaged when I'm on my deck?
I was trucking right along, knitting the back when project number three flew into my lap:
I'd been eyeballing Anne
's progress on her latest design
, realizing that I had the perfect yarn
for it. You know, one of those patterns that just grabs you and you know you must knit it, and you totally can't wait to just cast on? So I was utterly delighted when Anne took me up on my offer to test knit it. My version of her Glory Morning Wrap is still sprouting here, so go look at hers and see it in all its, um, glory. It demands all of my undistracted knitting time now - so the Celtic Camouflage sweater is waiting patiently, with the Mom sock as my "I can watch the kids and knit a little here and there" project.
