This, my friends, is the state of the knitting these days.
Three projects, all in various stages of completion.
On the far left, socks for Dale. Ahh, yes, the dreaded man socks. It may be a while before those are completed. Although, they are the only current project I have that allows me to knit and read at the same time and I’m really into reading these days, so that gives them an edge.
In the middle, a pair of Monkey Socks. It’s unusual for me to have 2 pairs of socks going at once but I started these as a plain old stockinette sock back in December and the yarn was pooling horribly. I liked the colors, though, and I wanted to use it since it was all wound up and ready to go. I decided the Monkey Socks pattern would solve my pooling issues and it did (mostly) but Monkey Socks can’t replace plain old stockinette socks when you need mindless knitting. And so, sigh, 2 pairs of socks at once.
Finally, on the far right, Miss BB for me. I’ve got the back done and about half of one front. I want this finished to wear for SPA at the end of February but, frankly, who knows if that will happen because my sweater commitment is often, ummmmm, flaky.
I am going to buckle down and get one of these projects finished in rapid style (my money is on the Monkey Socks) because I really really want to cast on Sweet Dreams and I absolutely will not start another project until at least one of these is done.
That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
