The knitting madness continues, but I can't post almost any of it, as it's largely gifts. Currently on the needles, because I have knitting monogamy issues:
– I've picked up The Perfect Black Sweater again- my plan to wear it home totally fizzled- and I'm working on the decreases for the raglan sleeves now. It's so nearly done, damnit; I just want to wear the thing, already. And did I mention I love Socks That Rock Mediumweight for sweaters? I really, really do. Also turned hems are too awesome; they're like magic. How did it take me so long to learn that?
– Working on mittens- designing them, actually, which is harder than it sounds as about everyone is designing mittens lately. Totally awesome, gorgeous mittens, might I add. Trying not to step on toes involves Ravelry time I just don't have, but hopefully I'll have a pattern to post before it gets warm again.
– Working a self- designed pair of incredibly stripped- down mitts, too, because I need something simple for daily use.
– Three gifts, none of which will be mailed out in time, most in a very small gauge.
– Mr. Greenjeans cardigan, in the most delicious bulky green merino yarn. All it needs is a button and for me to knit the sleeves- less than 4 hours of work, easily, but I just don't do it. Why? Because sleeves bore me, I guess. I think this is when I discover that I'm a process knitter, not a product knitter. Who'd have thought?
– One colorwork cowl in my own cashmerino, because it's so damned tempting and I have absolutely NO willpower. NONE. WHAT. SO. EVER.
– I'm also trying to design a lace scarf with some of my own fingering weight, because I am 100% insane.
And that's not mentioning the requests from my team for single socks in cashmere, which I don't even want to talk about, and a hat I've dreamed up for my boy to keep his ears warm this winter. Also the socks I want to design.
I really need to get a hold of myself and finish something again, damnit.
