Tiger Socks: An FO!!

Woot! Finally I finished something.

Tiger Socks

Mic's Tiger Socks (rav link with details). I finished them on Monday (Lorelei's birthday) while we were at the library.

What to work on next? My swallowtail is very close to being finished--I just need to work on the beading. Sandy thinks I should work on the Celtic Tote next. She has a good point. But I have the Austin Knit Out in a few days--it would be fun to arrive with a new shawl--IF I can get it finished. Hmmmm.

I did work on the Lace Ribbon Scarf--it's my only other project that is immediately available on the needles. I finished one ball of yarn. So now it's half way done.

A Milestone!

Today some one from my neck of the woods (Texas), downloaded the 500th Swiffer cloth pattern!! Woot!!

This pattern has been unexpectedly popular. I feel very blessed that so many have downloaded and knitted this pattern, something I thought up!

Here's to me finding more time and brain cells to design something equally as spectacular and popular.

Oh and on a side note: I have finished turning the heel on Mic's tiger socks...just 3 more inches of straight knitting left (and one inch of ribbing)!

Little of This a little of That

I have been called out. And I am missed! I feel loved...thanks all.

Life has gotten very busy. Homeschooling Micci takes up a lot of time...and my spare time is spent knitting. And I am feeling a bit boring. No big knitting news or anything. And so far monogamy is working...although I am being tempted (here's a rav link).

I am being a good girl.

I have worked on Mic's tiger socks...I started the heel turn at the game last night (more on THAT later). I also worked one the Lace Ribbon scarf...I nearly knitted through one skein of yarn so far. And I snuck in a square for a charity project.

Stars Square

It was for the Knit Nite at the Silver Stars event I organised last night--but I think I'll collect these through out the year.

On to the knit night!! I actually had people show up!! It was doubtful for a while.

First the knitters!!

Wendy and David

That's Wendy and David there. Super serious sock knitters there...smirk. I love getting shots where no one expects it---I need to work on my technique I know. I need to be more bold and ask for a smile or two...LOL.

Wedny's Kids

Wendy's Clan, plus soon to be daughter in law at the end there. The chica in the red knits--but I had just given her a prezzie so her lap was newly occupied. (Yes I handed out bribes to those that came.)

The Fox and MicciMicci and Lorelei

The kids all had fun too ;-).

I hope to make this a yearly event.

Really that's what's been going on knit wise with me.

Adventures in Monogamy

Okay--I took the advice of a reader and am knitting on the tiger sock and only the tiger sock. I knitted on it during the Silver Stars (WNBA) game last a little over 2 inches done--woot. When I got home, I continued knitting on...but then I heard a whimper.

Looked down: it was coming from my knitting bag. It was the Lace Ribbon scarf....begging for my attention. Poor neglected thing!

Still, I held on to my sock needles--and continued knitting.

Trying to help me in my pursuit of knitting monogamy suggestion; I take it one day at a time. Focus on ONE project a day and on the next day--continue on OR work on a other one.

Sounds good to me. Especially since I really need to work on the squares for a charity blanket for The Knit Nite with the Silver Stars next Saturday. Like always the days ran away from me--a week to go and I hadn't started on a single square.

Knitting Monogamy

So I am think of giving some monogamy in my knitting a try. I tend to have at least 5 knitting projects going on a one time...and I really don't spend a significant amount of time on any of them. Sorta just skipping around.

So I really don't get anything finished.

It's getting rather aggravating--especially when I don't feel right starting new projects because I have nothing finished.

But what to concentrate on, Lace Ribbon Scarf, Swallowtail Shawl, Tiger Socks, Celtic Tote or those two skinny lace scarves I have been working on my my little shop.

Lace Ribbon ScarfSwallowtail NubsTiger SockCeltic ToteTwisted Scarves

Jamey suggested I work on the project that is closest to the finish line. That would be the shawl, but it's in time out (I am beading the edging and the beads are giving me troubles--and I need to tink half a row). I think the socks are next, then the tote and skinny scarves. Course I am really loving the Ribbon Lace Scarf--so I don't want to stop knitting that. And knitting on plain jane vanilla socks doesn't sounds appealing.


I am hopeless.

Any suggestions?
