What can I say. I started a shawl that I really, really was obsessing over. I had some nice variegated yarn that I struggled to match with another yarn. I finally settled on a beautiful grey and started knitting on it. But… I am
a big sucking baby about struggling with the color changes. I mean, you have to cut the yarn and attach another one. There are ends to knit in. It is so interfering with my zen of knitting.
So, in a fit of “whatever” (did you read that with an internal “Valley Girl” voice? That’s the spirit!) I cast on two more projects that would be fast, portable, and involving NO yarn color changes. (See, I am being a baby about this). Here they are:
I now have three projects going and very little progress to show for any of them.
Whatever. It’s all about the zen, anyway. 🙂
Here are the links to my project notes for each of these.
Shawl: Edith’s Secret
Socks: Fire Dragon BFF
Finger-less MItts: Serendipitous Phenomenology Mitts This is a pattern that I’m writing down as I go in the Ravelry project page.

You’re not out of control! You can’t be because… I have 5 WIPs myself. I’m telling myself I’m just fine and nothing is going off the rails. So that has to mean that with three WIPs you’ve got nothing to worry about.
Well, I also went out and bought more yarn yesterday and am just panting to cast on a few more projects. The yarn is so beautiful I decided to make it the subject of another post. See, out of control!
LOL yes it’s all about the Zen!
All of these projects are in such luscious colours. That first shawl is especially gorgeous.
I’m trying to convince myself to love it again so I will knit on it this weekend. I’m going to try out a yarn wrapping method so I don’t have to cut any ends. 🙂
