Endless stitches

I've been working on things, of course. I feel like I have so many projects on the needles right  now that my head might explode. I went through the knitting basket the other day and discovered a whole bunch of things I had forgotten about. It's times like these that I spend the afternoon just ripping out projects I know I'll never complete and turning them back into yarn on the shelf.



Right now I'm sort of obsessed with this 'Mountain of Light' shawl. It's squishy garter stitch in Skein's Top Draw Sock, in the colorway 'Fig'. My friend Patricia sent me some and it's absolutely fantastic yarn - it looks like it will be variegated but really knits up into these mottled color transitions. I paired it with Sweet Georgia Merino Silk Lace on the edge - to be honest this feels more like a fingering weight yarn which makes the 720 yards per skein even more impressive. The shawl is lovely and I hope it will be fairly large when I finally finish. It certainly feels that way.

I have a bit of start-itis at the moment but I'm trying to stave it off and turn it into energy for finishing projects.

  4. I know how you feel except I'm currently sitting with a stack of books read halfway through and it's frustrating me to no end. I've vowed that I will finish them though!
