What are you? I am definitely a starter. In the last 12 hours, I have started two new projects, with no sign of finishing anything else that is currently sitting on my ottoman. I have the fronts and back of the balloon sleeve jacket finished and half of a sleeve done. I am also a foot into the Cameronne dress worked in SPORT WEIGHT. (its just not right to knit a dress in sport weight) I have socks that I have been working on because my only other pair of hand knit socks now have a hole in them. And I am also working on a quick scarf design using Neighborhood Fiber Company Studio Sock and mohair / silk (coming soon!)
So while I switched between those three four projects on Sunday for about 14 hours, nothing is finished. So last night I started this sweater for my nephew:
It comes in a hooded version too and I can’t decide which one to make. If I make the non hooded version, he will definitely get the hat. Fortunately, they are the same pattern and I don’t need to decide until I am almost done. I selected Berroco Pure Merino DK because our cotton blend Sublime yarn is not nearly warm enough for a coat in Pittsburgh.
I also came into the shop early this morning to work on my newsletter and get this vest started for my Dad’s birthday. you may remember the 24 hour socks that I knitted him one year. This vest needs to be about the same. His birthday is the 13th and I need to finish it and possibly get it in the mail (or keep it here until he comes down for Thanksgiving). It looks like this vest will be Shepherd’s Wool, although I haven’t decided on the colors yet.
So Wednesday (Veteran’s Day), I will be hosting the first of several Holiday Project Lock Ins. If you are a “starter” and need to actually finish something, join me on Wednesday a day of hot teas and project finishing. Bring those holiday gifts and lets get them done!
