Seriously. February has been gray and rainy here. Which is only made worse by the fact that I haven’t been able to get good outdoor pictures to add to TWO patterns I have ready to launch. I guess it gives more time to make sure EVERYTHING IS EXTRA PERFECT. And more time to make a few color combination swatches!
In order to stave away the restless feeling that comes with stagnant projects, I’ve been doing a bunch of little projects. So many little catch-all baskets/cozies. Yeah, I knit a cozy for a tiny plastic bin. I have a couple more to complete (including bringing up the sides of the black crochet mini-basket turned cozy)
In addition to whipping up the odd quick cozy, I’ve had some major start-itus. I want to START ALL THE PROJECTS. But I have so many in limbo that I feel stuck; unable to finish what I have on the hook and needles and unable to start new things (that will take longer than an hour). I did start a sport weight cotton baby blanket. Kinda. I’m two balls into the 10 I have of a discontinued yarn. Signs are not looking good to having enough yarn. At this rate, I will have a 35″x20″ blanket. Unacceptable. Having an open work is bad for babies: stuck fingers and toes. Contemplating ripping back for a forth time. Is it even worth it? Doomed before it really gets off the ground? As a plus, I got a LOT of use out of my Furls Odyssey Hook!
