I should probably be a little embarassed I have so many projects in the works.
Oh well, I guess my crafting a-d-d continues...
Baby Knits in Progress - This shouldnt even really be a category, since baby knits are so fast, but I think you'll agree once you look below, that I am a bit of a baby knits overachiever:
Yep, you just saw it yesterday. I only knit like 5 rows since the last pic, but really, this is the THIRD sweater of the same size I knit up for the little tykes this fall.
Christmas stockings for the boys, one down TWO to go. They only take a few days to knit if I focus. Of course, since I am crazy, I think I had the idea I was also going to knit a couple to decorate my house. Crazy I tell ya.
Sock Knits in Progress - Since I just showed the stockings, which are really just giant socks, it is a nice transition into regular socks:
These socks are anything but regular. I have been wanting to knit kneesocks for a while, and after only ripping out ONE ENTIRE sock, they are perfect. I cobbled together about 4 different sock techniques from various patterns, and worked in my own increases based on my sisters measurments. These are planned to be my #2 project to complete, after that baby sweater.
Just a plain pair of socks to carry around in my purse, they havent gotten any knitting time, because the nephew sweaters are pretty simple too. It will be a quick knit to finish up this second sock, when I get around to picking them up.
A super cute and fun to knit sock pattern. It has been set aside because i just dont really like knitting socks on DPN's, or on size ones...both of which this sock is. They sort of live in the someday I may finish this pile.
Shawls in Progress:
A massive handspun yarn-eater...i started this traditional danish wrap shawl in not so traditional colors to keep me cozy when I am too cheap to turn the heat up this winter. It hasnt been cold, so I havent been inspired to knit. I am sure I will get back to it eventually.
This trevi shawl is fun to knit. I really like the pattern and the yarn, I just haven't really been in a lace knitting kind of mood.
This brandywine shawl is the BEST colors of red. Sadly, you have to follow the chart on BOTH SIDES of this one. I really want to wear it someday. But apparently not enough to sit down and pay attention.
Its not really a shawl, but I also have this lengthwise knit mobius scarf I cast on for airplane knitting a while back. I apparently didnt knit too much on the plane. I will eventually finish it.
I really want to knit every single pattern in my "Itty Bitty Toys" Book. But apparently I dont love knitting ANYTHING in cotton. Even super clever toy patterns. I will finish this hippo eventually though.
I also have a Sweater In Progress:
This is probably the 4th or 5th thing i want to finish. After the baby sweater, knee socks, stockings and also MAYBE something on deck I am about to mention below. It is a sweater for me. And I expect I will wear it later this winter.
The insanity continues when you realize that even with all the projects above, I still have a couple more all ready to knit in bags with their patterns. And I may finish them before some of the other stuff above...
Grey Lopi Sweater from the Bridgette Cardigan Pattern in a compilation book. The main grey yarn is on its way from Webs as I type this. And honestly, I am super excited about this sweater. I may not be able to stop myself from casting it on. Immediately.
The Cedar Leaf Shawlette. I have really been wanting to knit this for a while...its been in a little project bag with a photocopy of the original pattern (so I wont ruin the original) pretty much all summer.
And last but not least...I knit a mitt for Judy this spring for a demo, and I've been meaning to do up the second one for her, so she has a pair. I will probably sneak this guy in between some other stuff. Partially because holding Judy's yarn is a joy (3 of the projects above involve yarn from Ball & Skein), and partially because it really only takes an evening to knit one of these knits, so I might want some instant gratification.
So yeah, thats 14 projects in all. Fifteen if you count the christmas stocking separately. Which I probably shouldn't. I am sure I will have them all done in no time. You know, If I don't start working on something else.
