Lately I felt as if I have an ungodly number of works in progress - 7 at current count - for me that's not even an abnormal number, but it just suddenly feels so humongous and daunting. I feel as if there is no way I could ever possibly finish them all, and I'm starting to feel frustrated and impatient. Normally I'm a 'process' knitter which means that I just enjoy knitting for the sake of knitting - the finished object is just a neat bonus. But lately I've been the opposite. I just want things DONE.
So now I'm focusing on one project at a time, trying to knock each one out in turn. I'm focusing mostly the star blanket - not pictured, it's just a blob of blue and white ;) -
Trying to finish it so I can check it off the list and move on down the line. That saying, since I finished the Tenta Cowl a few weeks ago, I have ben woefully without a lace project, so I started a new one -___-;;
I know! What was I thinking? But I bought this yarn, specifically for this pattern last year during the Atlanta Shop Hop, and I've been dreaming about casting it on for MONTHS. I finally caved. The Pattern is Ictis by boo knits. The yarn is DIK Wisp in the Shy colorway.
Cheers! Don't forget to visit Tami's for more WIPs :)
Today I have a bit of a spinning FO. 1.8 ounces spun up into approximately 190 yards of 'fingering weight' yarn. 19 WPI.
Not sure what the fiber was, all I know is that it came from Maryland Sheep and Wool from what seems like 100 years ago. It's probably Merino though. Staple length is relatively short compared to what I'm used to spinning.
Spun this as a single all on one bobbin and then chain plied it to get a three ply. Seems like light fingering/heavy lace weight to me. Ish. It blows my mind how imprecise those definitions can really be.
Spun this up for my sister. Not sure what she will do with it, but I hope she likes it :)
Progress is continuing on my Beth's Little Star blanket. I took a break on it last week after making a mistake in the pattern, but I've recovered now and am back on track. I don't have any plan at all about the stripes, I'm just doing them randomly as I go along :)
I Also may have ordered some yarn from ESK recently, I check my mail eagerly each day waiting for the order to arrive ^^;;
