WIPs are everywhere!
I commented last week that one must have WIPs to have FOs. At the time, I had no WIPs to speak of, since I had just finished three projects. But now? Well, those WIPs are gearing up for a coup.
First, we have Icarus, of course. Moving along nicely. (Or at least, it was until this morning, when I tried to work on it during the first-ever meeting of my new SnB. While I have sufficient brain-power to talk, or to knit lace, I evidently do not have enough to do both at the same time. Icarus is now awaiting tinking back to figure out just where I started making yarnovers one stitch too early.)
Next, we have the new, as yet unnamed, jacket. I really love the colors and sparkle of the yarn. I'm not really loving the finished fabric. It's kind of heavy and inflexible, and the metallic thread makes it a little scratchy. There may be frogging in its future.
Then, there's this:
This is the the beginnings of this twin set from "Knitting Lingerie Style" that I felt compelled to cast on last night.
And this morning, an old friend called with the news that she just gave birth to her third child. (She's 43 and now has three kids under the age of five. Can you imagine?) I didn't even know she was pregnant, and I'm feeling bad about that, so I think a baby sweater is in order. I'll be casting that on later today.
My new books and yarns are due to arrive today and tomorrow, so I'm thinking this frenzy of casting on is far from over. Fortunately, I have a limited supply of needles, so I'll have to stop eventually. Or buy new needles.
P.S. If you haven't seen this yet, take three minutes and watch it now. It will brighten your day.
