Wednesday Update: I am now officially out of control!

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.

Shawl
This is my Edith’s Secret shawl that was the Downton Abbey MKAL from Jimmy Bean’s Wools this year.

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:

Fingerless mitts
I’m making these simple finger-less mitts to match my latest Hitchhiker shawl. The cashmere blend yarn is the leftover from the shawl, and I’m using plain stockinette as I have learned it shows off the yarn well.
Socks
The BFF socks that I made for the March New Year’s resolution turned out so cute that I cast on again with this cashmere blend yarn from MJ Yarns. March is Colorado’s snowiest month, and another pair of socks always comes in handy, right?

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
