update on projects in the works, OR, when Erin comes clean about the many many things she’s trying to do

I would like to think that I’m better at reining in the number of projects I’m working on at one time, but let’s be honest, I am 100% not good at that at all. I typically love the projects but sometimes they bore me to tears and I feel like I need to get something new going like right this second. Having new yarn arrive the other day did nothing to help the situation. So here goes, a full accounting of what I’m working on…

Kitty amigurumi – this is for our new niece who should be born in January. It’s probably at least half done and it’s such a small project that I’m not sure why I just can’t get it finished.

Skewed shawl – I bought this cake of mohair yarn on an absolute whim and then could find just ONE pattern that uses it. And I’m not super excited about it.

Lace scarf – this is fine, but it’s boring. The yarn is soft, does this rainbow color block thing that’s lovely, but the pattern is just a two row repeat and the yarn is sock weight. It’s taking absolutely forever. But this is the project I take with me for things like doc visits when I know I’ll be spending some time waiting. It’s also good TV knitting.

Lotus cowl – sock weight yarn, lace, and beads, need I say more? I’m about 1/3 of the way done with this but unlike that lace scarf this is one that has to be done with plenty of solitude and quietness. Assuming I ever actually finish it this will be stunning.

Holiday gift – I’m not sure who all reads this blog so I’m going to play this safe and be super vague. The yarn is great, the pattern is great, but it’s a bit fussy. I would say I’m probably at least 1/3 of the way done and should have no trouble finishing by Christmas.

Rectangulum – this is the new kid. I had the pattern saved in my Ravelry library but didn’t have enough of any one sock yarn to make this the way I wanted to, at least not until that latest batch of yarn arrived. I’ll be making this with two balls of Louisa Harding’s Pittura in the “Sleeping Venus” colorway. This pattern also requires buttons and thanks to Mom I have a whole jar full. I found several colors I’ll be using and it’ll be perfect.

I’ve also got a jewelry project that I started ages ago that really should get finished, plus several more kits for jewelry, oh and some felting kits as well. Truly, I have enough project fodder to last at least the next year, probably longer. But I like to stay busy and I hate being bored.

Today I love… new knitting projects, I love overnight oats and how that means less fussing in the morning, I love that Dino (my friend’s kitty; I’m critter sitting this week) hung out with me yesterday for a bit, I love that Lancelot only has 2 shifts left, and I love that being hyper-organized really does work for me
