- The Beekeeper's Quilt. This is a wonderfully diverting project that has now become my carrying around knitting and my low-concentration knitting. I now have (runs off to count) 32 puffs done with hundreds to go.
I started Blu in June after purchasing the yarn four and a half years ago. The pieces are knitted and have been washed and shrunk. Now they need a lot of embroidering and seaming and I just can't muster the enthusiasm.
- Uptown Boot Socks. I started these suckers in February. I've knit a tiny bit here and there on them this summer and have only just recently turned the heel on the first sock.
- Fast Forward. I started this in March and have only a few more inches of ribbing to knit and the second cable section. I think part of the reason I stalled on this is that the Shelter yarn I'm using is so scratchy I don't think I'll ever wear the scart.
- Cornflower Shawl.
I started this in Tosh Merino Light on my flight to Chicago. I was having a really hard time. I kept making little mistakes and ripping it out on the plane. I got frustrated and set it aside. I ripped back to the first increases and I have had no problems with it. It's now my tv knitting.
- Stripe Study Shawl.
I got as far as winding the yarn (Miss Babs's Yummy Sock) and casting on while avoiding the Cornflower Shawl.
- Lilla Koftan.
I found out last Friday that one of my sons' former after-school teachers just had a baby girl. I cast on for this simple sweater in leftover All Seasons Cotton. I thought I could knock it off in a weekend but I just have it sitting by my computer so I haven't put that much time into it.
So that's mostly everything. I feel defeated by this pile of knitting. I need to finish a few things and cross them off my list!
