I’m going on a three month yarn diet, April through June. I have a yarn
store trip planned for 4th of July weekend, going to teach Sehlat how to knit a funky little
item, probably a summer scarf from eyelash yarn, and I’d like to pick up
some Brown Sheep yarn, and maybe a book. But that’s July. Until then…I’m
accountable to you. My virtual stash
will probably overflow.
Meantime I have two pairs of socks on the go, two requests for mini-socks
(which should be doable in two evenings, hopefully), and the Eternal Sweater. If I cast on and get the ribbing out of the way, the rest is all cabled goodness. Start and finish the front and I only have one arm left to do, and the final assembly. It must be complete for August 2005. Some cotton yarn in the closet is waiting to be turned into socks, and I’d like to try entrelac, anyone have any hints on doing it and remaining sane?
Then there’s this book, Kath
Dalmeny’s World of knitted toys by Kath Dalmeny and Carolyn Clewer. I
snagged it from the library today, and fell in love with the platypus, dolphin, racoon, sheep, turtle, penguin, and pig patterns, they are too cute! I even have a beige pig colour in my stash, some elderly Paton’s acrylic I got in England for a Wallace and Gromit picture sweater I never started.
I think I have to set myself a limit of three projects in
progress, including socks. More just feels wrong. But I’d love to try the platypus! As soon as I finish the socks. And the mini socks. And the ribbing on the sweater. Must finish the sweater!
