Find It Yourself
I did finish the Thin Ice and it's soaking in Soak now.
Last week I cast on a quick crochet cushion cover for Carly's dog bed. But it is not finished yet. Then I cast on some baby leg warmers for a friend's new baby. Very quick, not finished the first.
I joined Lala's Mittens for Me knit a long and got most of the first cuff done, but the second clue is already out.
Then there was the preparing travel knitting for next week's trip to Arizona. The Seafoam scarf in grass green Qiviut was easy enough to start. The pattern is already on cards. But what if I run out of knitting, or I'm in a situation where I can't follow a chart?!!!! So I cast on my sister's pattern, euclidia to make a shawl from some gorgeous Misty Alpaca handpainted sock yarn. That just about does it.
Now I am a bit overwhelmed by the number of projects on the needles. Except for the Dahlia sweater, they're all small, but collectively pretty daunting.
I hope to get some good progress on them this weekend, if I can find the time.
