Of course, my knitting bag wouldn't be complete without a pair of plain socks - this pair for me as I am going to need a couple of replacements by this fall.
Last night I grafted the two pieces of this shawl together. I plan on doing the finish work and blocking later today (assuming my LYS has Euclan in stock, which isn't guaranteed.). Look for a post on this finished piece later this week.
There is plying that needs to be done.
And I'm ashamed to admit that I started spinning this silk last summer...and when I came to a decision point I put it away never to be seen again. It really is too lovely to let it go.
My on-the-go spinning hasn't seen much action lately. In fact, it hasn't seen much action since I first introduced it to you a couple (a few?) of weeks ago.
Then there are the silly pieces which need minor work. For example, I just need to do two rows of single crochet around each of the armholes on my Botanica Medallion Cardi and sew in the ends.
The poor monkeys need their tales, ears and face details. To be fair, I am not very motivated to finish these as my Mom is taking her time with the clothes.
The Princess put holes in the bottoms of her most recent socks - and she wants them fixed as they are her favorites.
Of long-term projects I have three. First up, this beautiful cabled cardigan, intended to be an over sized weekend sort of sweater...the sort that makes everything better when you wear it.
The second is my Winter Solstice Shawl...which stalled out because I couldn't make up my mind on how to mark the bird tracks. This is actually quite an important step, so that statement isn't as silly as it sounds. It stays in hibernation because I'm only just now feeling mentally up to this type of knitting again.
Likewise, I knew better than to try to work on my Princess during recovery.
The gauntlet was thrown down this weekend by my mother - who is clearly annoyed with me for buying this fabric more than a year ago and then never making up the quilt. She has a point, but then I would also like to state again for the record that I am NOT much of a sewer....no matter how much I love the fabric. However, it is time to get busy on this one.
Oddly enough, these donuts were never finished, either. Probably because they would involve hand sewing...which perhaps makes me even more nervous than the quilting. (Ironically enough, embroidery is high on my list of things to do next.
Why do I want to start something new so badly?
PS. Sorry for the lack of links today. I'm in a rush to get out the door.
