Happy Wednesday, y'all! Once again, I'm amazed at how slow my progress has been this week. I can't seem to find any knitting time lately. Clearly, my priorities are not in order. Must work on rearranging them.
If you've been reading here for any length of time at all, you'll know that I'm a pretty monogamous knitter. I really like to finish one thing before I start something else. Otherwise, I get a little twitchy. I've gotten a bit better (worse?) lately though, and have had 2 projects going for a while now. I'm happy to report that this week, I have 3 (!) projects on the needles. Huzzah!
In no particular order, here's what's percolating around these parts today...
Chevalier mittens are still trucking along. I got really excited to finish mitten #1 on my lunch hour yesterday, and I was chatting, and knitting furiously, and I totally mucked up the decreases. I was off by two stitches at the end of a round, so I tinked back a round and found myself off by 4. Sigh. I'm hoping to get it fixed today, because it's thisclose to being done. So close, in fact, that you only get a picture of the palm side this week so as not to spoil the "ooh! ahh!" factor when they make their debut on FO Friday (but likely not this FO Friday).
cable lace vest this week, too. I'm working the bust increases now, and kind of stuck since the instructions of where to make the increases don't match the instructions for where to work the increased stitches. Hmmph. Trying now to decide how to move the increases around so that it all makes sense and the vest winds up having boobs in roughly the same place I do. We'll see.
WIPW posts last week, and ended up visiting Sudden Expression, a cute blog that Laura writes and that I keep forgetting to subscribe to. Anyway, she's coordinating a preemie hat knitting project in memory of her two nieces who were born way too early last year. You can read all about it here. And here's thethread on Ravelry, if you're a raveler, where there's loads more information and also links to super cute patterns. Personally, I picked this one, a modified version of this pattern.
Yarn Diet-ers out there, I'm thinking this would be an outstanding way to use up some stash and do a good deed in the process. Bonus!
S'all I got for today. But come back on Friday for Misadventures in Yarn Dyeing. Whee!
