Continuing Confessions of a Knitalong Whore

I haven't knit any of the recent designs for this one. They just haven't rung my bell.

My Sockapaloooza socks, my Diamond Fantasy shawl and my Knot & Cable Jacket are all being knit from stash. I've also been using small bits of sock leftovers for baby socks.

The new sock is New England. I'll start when I finish my Sockapaloooza socks.

I finished my Leaf Lace Shawl a while ago. The new pattern is the Flower Basket Shawl. I knit this pattern last year so I'll take a few months off from this knitalong.

I knit the Latvian and Country socks. The current pattern are the Norwegian Stockings. I don't want to buy the yarn for this project since I already have so much sock yarn and I don't really want a pair of knee high stranded knit wool socks. I'm sitting this one out.

I haven't touched this thing in a long, long time. I think once I finish my two current sweaters I will make this my main focus.

April 1st.

Oh crap. The skirt was supposed to be done yesterday. I have not touched my supplies since I bought them. I've been feeling a little too scattered and distracted to work on this.

I will consider this done when I have cleared the decks of my current projects--Knot & Cable, Durrow and Sockapaloooza socks.

I'm still deciding between using my Mountain Goat or Peruvian Nights. I won't start this until I finish my Diamond Fantasy Shawl and make some real progress on Frost Flowers and Leaves.

Diamond Fantasy Knitalong
I'm making good progress on this at night while I watch TV. I only have about 400 yards of the handspun so this won't be much more than a scarf.

I think that's it. Whew.
