Lately that's my speed. I finished the Summer Anklet sock Friday evening. I was confident that I would run out of the festive stripe Cascade Fixation I was using and have to make the toe with the pale yellow I had in the stash. In fact, I was kind of counting on it. Guess what? I ended up having enough to make it all in the variegated with a few yards leftover. I feel kind of cheated, like I should have put that yellow on there anyway and had a bit more left, but I finished it, took its picture, and it's done. Done, do you hear me? Done. Finished. Finito. *dusts off hands* (don't tell anybody but I went into the stash yesterday and got another skein of Fixation to cast on another one, shhhh)
I finished the left front of the Bean's Kimono Thursday night at the Guild's Knit in the Park night. I did have to tink (knit backwards) the last 6 rows because I forgot that I'd done a garter stitch edge on the back. *head, slap* I'll be plunging in to make the right front, maybe today, plus I saw a booties pattern that just might work with this. (one thing at a time, Barbara)
I'm working on the ruffle edging of the Wildflowers Shawlette. It's kind of a slog. You increase a lot making a ruffle so I'm working on hundreds of stitches and it's slow going but I'm determined, although for some reason I'm not as enthusiastic as I was before. Must be the warmer weather because I sure like the way it's looking.
I have to finish the above two projects before I embark on any others. Have. To. No new socks, no matter how pretty the yarn is (but it's only an anklet, my inner 9-year-old whines). No unearthing the leftovers of a few boot socks to start the next one of those, winter's far away. *fingers crossed* No casting on the back of this sweater I'm enamored with. Before I cast it on I have to do some figuring because the pattern doesn't go up to my size. It's not a huge deal but something that merits some calm consideration and a little math before I dive into the deep end.
It's too bad because I'm kind of in an "everybody into the pool" mood today. I could do some damage with all the pairs of needles and yarn I have at my disposal but I learned the hard way that I can't get something half done and then put it away for a year. That way leads to frustration and frogging.
