And that is why I generally don’t have 14 hundred WIPs going on at once. I like the process, and I like arriving at the end.
I don’t leave things unblocked. Or without buttons. Or unseamed.
I am a finisher.
And therefore, it is not comfortable to have eight things going on at once. Or at least eight projects cast on at once. And also, not good for me. Because I tend to knit a lot. Obcessively. Trying to make progress on all of them.
Trying to finish…
To top it off, my started projects have not been successful.
The green socks (River Rapids by The Sock Bug, rav linky) are going to be some other socks. I adjusted her sizing to my foot size and gauge. After finishing the gusset decreases, I tried it on, and it was too small to be comfortable. I knew it, and therefore, I frogged it. I tried to adjust the size, because I really like the pattern, but with the sock weight and the eight stitch repeat, combined with my narrow feet, it was not to be. Back to Charlene Schurch’s Sensational Knitted Socks, and a perfect fit for the green handpainted. All I need is to cast on. Maybe later.
The Branching Out scarf is no longer. See...Silky Tweed is NOT Silky Wool. Ms. Susan Lawrence specifies that knitting with Silky Wool, one will get about 27 repeats of the pattern. After 14 repeats, I was almost out of yarn. What gives? Then I gave thought on the fact that I know of the yardage difference between the two above mentioned types of Elsebeth Lavold yarns. Both nice softy yarn for knitting, and both ‘Silky’, but a difference in yardage of…oh…about 10-12 repeats!! Lovely pattern. Maybe later. Much later. I am sort of disgusted with myself on this one.
Swallowtail was working okay, just starting the second chart, when my markering system screwed me up. I will try that again. But after.
Sweet Peasy has started well, and is going to be a nice car knit with lots of stockinette.
First I finish the February Lady, and Sunkist (which is flowing swimmingly).
Because really? I am a finisher.
Stupid 'must knit' virus...
