How many projects can I have on the needles at once? Apparently, LOTS. That “gauge” over on the sidebar isn’t exactly correct. I’ve got lots more things going, some I started ages and ages ago (as in years). I’ve got half a sweater done…I really should pick it up and finish. And tonight I cast on the Huggable Hedgehog! (Photo is the designers photo…I’ll post mine when it’s done.) I had so much fun knitting the flamingo that I thought I’d try for more toys. Maybe these will actually reach their intended recipients! I have a tendency to knit baby clothes but not block them and send them! Of course, the kids outgrow them and here I am with the sweetest little sweaters and dresses!
I’ve got some gorgeous Alpaca for another sweater. I’ve had the yarn for a year. It’s a lovely brown with specks of blue in it. I’m dying to make it for myself but I just haven’t found the perfect pattern yet. That, and I keep wanting to loose weight before I knit a sweater. Silly. I keep wanting to loose weight before I do anything. Not a good idea.
Anyway…the shrug I’m planning to knit for Kiddlebiddle I think I’ll save for airplane knitting. It’s fairly simple and she’ll be with me to check for size. Plus, with circular needles I’m sure the airlines won’t have a problem (though I hear they let knitting needles on anyway now).
I’m losing track of all the projects I’ve got/want. Well, not really. I’m keeping track of them over on Ravelry (great new site for fiberistas – still in beta but I was one of the (thousands) lucky ones. Absolutely LOVE the site.
Gonna head off to bed now. Enough knitting (????) (well…maybe I’ll take a sock to bed with me….)
