Just three...

I have a rule about not having more than 3 projects on the needles at once. More than that and I don't think I'd be disciplined enough to finish them. Problem is, I have 3 boring knits on the needles right now and have received lots of new yarn and patterns in the past few weeks and really feel the itch to start something else.

I have this handpainted silk and chenille for a wave scarf:

This cream coloured cotton for a baby cabled sweater:

This blue merino for a personalised baby blanket from Erika Knight's "Special Knits for Cherished Babies" (Julian LOVES blankets):

This Debbie Bliss Astrakhan for cardigan #4 from the Fall 2005 Vogue knitting:

And that's just the new stuff...I have lots and lots of stash yarn already earmarked for baby projects and Christmas gifts.

But I can't get to it until I finish the Lopi Lite sweater (I am hoping to finish the body today and maybe even start sleeves). I won't post a photo because, sadly, it looks exactly like it did on Thursday. I also have an Irish Hiking Scarf on the needles (it's been on the needles for almost a year already). And I am also working on the baby argyle cardigan for my November stashbuster project.

I just need to finish one before I can start on a new exciting project but each of them will require at least a week of dedicated knitting before completion. Maybe I need to change the rule...4 projects isn't too many, is it? I need some instant gratification. ;0)


  1. Definitely cast on for another project. ;) My current love is socks and I only keep one pair on the go at a time but that's only because I don't have another set of needles in the size I use.

  2. I'm sure the sweater looks great, even though it looks the same as it did before. :) Are you going to knit both sleeves at the same time to save time? Hopefully it'll be done quickly. I have a couple of projects that are boring me. My Mom's Clapotis and my Grandmother's Branching Out scarf. Hopefully I'll have them done lickity split and won't have to worry about them anymore. If you're bored of the sweater though, why not knit a couple of rows on the Hiking Scarf, and then go back to the sweater. It might just be enough to peak your interest again.

    4 projects isn't too many, so if you need instant gratification I say, GO FOR IT!
