Pink lady knits


WIP Parade

I don't know if you've noticed...but the sidebar is getting a little ridiculous!
I'm pretty sure I've never had this many projects on the needles at once...and it's starting to make me a little queasy. I need to finish some of these up!

  • I plan to work on the lovely blue socks at work...and intend to finish those by Mother's they are for my Mom...she is anxiously awaiting them!

  • The Moderne Log Cabin Blanket also has an important deadline...the birth of little Miss "Poppy", which is slated to occur on June 7th. However, I should note that this is just the first in a long line of projects that I want to complete for her (and her big sister) by the sooner the better on this one, really.

  • The Shetland (also known as my Arch Nemesis) should be completed by the first week of May because it's future owner would like to show it Paris...and I can't think of a better place for a coming out party.

  • Lady E is for me...and is in thick wool, so there's no rush on that one, thank GOD.

  • Scribble is for my bestest friend Katie, for her birthday which falls at the end of May. The 20th to be exact. This isn't a trying knit...nor is it one that should take a long I'm confident.

  • I'd originally intended the Roza's socks for me...but now I'm thinking that I'll pick out the toe in one and add a little length and give them to my Aunt. She was promised socks a while ago and I think she'll love the simplicity of these. Not hard and fast deadline on these though, so they will continue to languish.

  • And finally, the beautiful Endpapers. These are also for me...and because of that, they will get no love for a while. I enjoy working on them, and really want to hone my colorwork skills, but they aren't as pressing as some of the others.
There you have embarrassingly long list of WIP's. I must take an oath:
(raises right hand...)
From this point forth I will not start a new project until one, or more, of these is finished. I will not look longingly in my stash at the beautiful yarn I have there and think "What could I make with that?" until I've cast off and sewn in the ends on some of these beauties. Because, let's face it, they are all nice projects. They just need a little TLC...and luckily for them, the doctor is IN.

I can't help but notice that endpaper mitt in the top left corner of your mosaic...those things will drive me to the end of myself...I started them, and have less than a third of the second one to finish and it is languishing in my basket. Good for you for finishing yours...I love the color combo you chose.

Oops now I am laughing, your endpaper mitts are 50 per cent done...okay, I don't feel so bad now.

Hate to say it, but your UFOs make me feel better - I have 5 or 6 right now, too! And I'm with raining sheep, those Endpapers will be the death of me - started, frogged, started again, frogged -- I finished one whole glove but then it was too small and I didn't like the way it looked, so they're on indefinite hold.

I finally started a blog: - I am fooling around with layout and stuff, right now it's just generic. I need to find out how to make one of those cool progress bars like the one you have - maybe it will guilt me into finishing stuff!

My mom and I are definitely in for MDS&W - let me know which day you're going and we'll drive down to meet you.

Talk soon!
