I've been waiting to post in order to have some cool project to show off. I'm on a pseudo vacation this week (I take vacations to prepare for interviews & upcoming talks at conferences - how sad is that!) and thought I'd get a bunch of knitting done. Instead, I'm starting a ton of projects and wondering how I will finish them all!
I'm typically the type of knitter who works on one project at a time. I've always been surprised by this, as I don't exhibit this behavior in any other part of my life (the hubby cringes when I say 'Let's repaint this room again! It will just take a weekend!'). So...long story to say that I'm a little baffled by the fact that I'm starting all of these projects. I've decided to embrace the chaos however, and see where it takes me:
Project 1: February Lady's Sweater
See this post for details.
I'm not happy with this yarn. I want to be happy with it. The color is gorgeous. The yarn is organic wool. What's not to like? It is tearing up my hands and actually making my shoulder hurt to knit. Maybe this isn't the right choice for this sweater? Does this yarn get any softer the more you use it? Please advise if anyone has used O-Wool Classic and not had their hands bleed! (Sorry O-Wool - I typically love your yarn!)
Project 2: Dinosaurs
The hubby requested Trice - How could I say no?
I'm making this out of Blue Sky Organic Cotton leftovers
Project 3: Tangled Yoke Cardigan
I LOVE the yarn I'm using for this cardi. When you get a chance, go online and buy Brooks Farm Solo Yarn. You'll be amazed at how beautiful and soft it is. See this post for a pix.
Project 4: Manly Scarf
I'm using Malabrigo for this wintry scarf for the hubby.
Project 5: Secret Special Gift - See this post for details.
