In my knitting bag right now I have:
one Turkish sock, along with the first two yarn colors and the DPNs that I need to cast on sock number two;
one Frost Tapestry mitten, and the yarn and needles I need to cast on mitten number two;
the February Baby Sweater that I’m knitting for Miss Penny (only 8 weeks left until she’s “scheduled” to arrive…but since she’s mine, she’ll be here about 5 days late) out of my hand spun (which I’m about to run out of…what to do? what to do?),
and the rest of the Trekking 6 Fach which is destined to become Max socks. So what, you ask, am I knitting?
A scarf that, until Thursday was only a “maybe I’ll knit it someday” sort of project, and that has taken on a life of its own. I’ve finished 8 out of 32 repeats since yesterday afternoon.
A Stork’s Nest Scarf by Nancy Bush, Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere yarn (Olive), size 5 needles
I think the problem is that the other stuff is all Christmas knitting, and I’m really pretty far ahead. Plus it’s hot (whine) and the Christmas project yarn is… well, it’s suitable for people in Wisconsin to use during the winter. This scarf I started yesterday is knit from a cashmere-silk blend, and it’s so soft and drapey and nice. The heavier stuff may have to wait until the cooler weather returns, which might just be next week.
I’d better get cracking on that scarf!
