WIP Wednesday: Too many things on the needles!
It’s official: I am knitting too many things simultaneously, and as a result, I seem to be getting very little accomplished.
First, there are the Solemate socks that I started for the Ravellenic Games. I finished the first sock and cast on for the second, and then I got distracted by the felted slippers. Yep, Second Sock Syndrome has hit hard here.
And then there are the afore-mentioned Felted Slippers, which I have now knit twice. I am hoping that the third time is the charm, but honestly, my track record here is pretty bad, so I’m wondering what’s going to go wrong this time…
The Scalloped Lace Toddler Cardigan is still waiting patiently in my knitting bag. And the toddler in question needs me to finish this soon, especially because then I can work on the other project I had planned for her this fall, a cabled sweater jacket that will hopefully carry her through those cooler fall days.
And then there is the Cathay sweater, for which I took the Tahoe sweater from Knitty as inspiration and then proceeded to change every single thing except the original yarn. (Yeah, I’m a pain like that.) I knit it at a slightly tighter gauge, added bust and waist shaping, added sleeve shaping, and plan to finish off the yoke using Elizabeth Zimmerman’s seamless set-in sleeve. Which reminds me, I still need to spin the yarn I plan to use for the trim around the neck and buttonband…
And those are just the projects that are currently in progress. I’ve also got swatches for the cabled sweater for my daughter and a cabled vest for me.
I either need more knitting time or a 12-step program…

More time. There’s no 12-step program and even if there is, when would we get a chance to go? (Even if we wanted to.) Shrug. Whatcha gonna do? 🙂
Obviously, I need to knit faster! Which means I should invest in more pairs of Signature needles, since I knit fastest with those, right?! (Yes, I am already preparing my Rhinebeck shopping list!)
