So I started something else. My tiger eye's scarf in orange & black. This is awesome because it will work for SF Giants games, as well games for my alma mater (University of the Pacific). However, lace drives me batty. I'm always missing a yarn over or knitting two together, instead of three. I can really only do one full pattern repeat in a day or I start to get twitchy so I started something else.
I started something else. This time it is a Featherweight cardigan. 700 yards of laceweight yarn, all in stockinette stitch. Ahhh, monotony. Perfect for knitting while watching TV. Although this picture isn't current, the project is almost done. It is THIS close. However, I'm starting to run low on yarn (maybe knitting a project that has a yarn of requirement of 960 yards, when I only have 700 yards wasn't such a good idea?) and the project is starting to require more thought. That being the case, it wasn't the easy, mindless knitting I needed for airplane knitting so I started something else.
I started something else while in flight from Fresno to Dallas (are you starting to see a pattern here?). I started my sister's hat, using hand-dyed and handspun yarn from the Vildish Twist. It's awesome and Vilde is awesome. I knit this happily on the flight to Dallas and on the flight back. It was perfect airplane knitting.
There you have it. I currently have 4 projects on the needles, not to mention that I still need buttons for that baby sweater, so I can call it officially completed. You would think that I have more than enough knitting to keep me happy for a while, finishing up these projects, but no. I have a top secret project with a short deadline. As soon as that yarn arrives, it will become my obsession until it is finished. I am really excited for this project and can't wait to get started. While I (impatiently) await the arrival of yarny goodness, I will no doubt make some progress on the above projects but finishing any of them might be pushing it.
Tune in tomorrow for the most recent additions to my ever-expanding yarn stash.
