91 rows in to the effing cast-on band of the back piece of Lift & Separate. of 161 rows. That's it. That's my progress in 4 days. *sigh*
I am PMS-y so don't mind me. I have PMS and I have pink eye. What a g-d pain. Just when I start to finally feel better from the last few weeks of ear/throat funk I get this. WTF. I have the immune system of a rotten apple.
Okay, so back to my pic... my Kacha-kacha counter, my 29" sz 6 circs and my Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in a pink silk Lantern Moon knitaround bag. (oh and that's a Green & Black dark chocolate praline truffle up in the corner with a wrapper from the other one I just ate, from the gifty pack that Gill sent me)
I was looking at my cast-on for Orangina that I did back in January, but never got past the 3rd row of the back piece, because of my knitting ADD. And I still am on row 47 of Clapotis. And my first sock is still on 4 dpns about 25 rows into the cuff. And my Silk Sleeves from One Skein are almost done - I've completed one sleeve and am 1/3 into the other. Plus I have one mindless project going on -- 37 sts of k1/p1 rib on size 7 needles in Kidsilk Haze, just going row by row til the ball is done LOL So my next decision is - which project should get my renewed attention? I would really like to be able to COMPLETE one thing, maybe 2 before starting or going to another one. But remember I have knitting ADD? *chuckles softly*
At one point, I had 17 WIPs going. 17!!!
I frogged most of them, completed 3 and kept the Clapotis, Orangina, the sock & Silk Sleeves . (well, Silk Sleeves was actually Enchante reborn) Like I had stated previously, I am gun-shy of major projects ever since my Kyoto fiasco. But diving into Lift & Separate is my attempt to remedy that and despite my slow-ass progress, I am excited because the strip so far is so soft and the stitch definition is lovely. I really enjoy the Cashmerino DK and had forgotten how I could actually make a pretty WIP on small needles in a thinner weight yarn. Heck, if it makes me look skinnier, then I am all for it.
And this is my latest find... This awesome Icky Baby Sushi Tote - the pattern is discontinued but there are various items in this pattern floating around the internet. I saw the bag originally when I met Lila/thatfarmgirl at our KNitting Cat SnB and she had her Orangina WIP in it. I was in love with it from the very beginning and have been searching for one for a month. Lila actually found the eBay link for me last week and emailed it. So now I can be cool and hip like her...
The immune system of a rotten apple....bleee. Pink eye is going around quite a bit. I know several adults who have just recently gotten it. You always think of kiddos coming down with it, but then again, you work with lots of kiddos (Joy!)!
I am up to three projects. I know, I know kick me, but I get nervy when I have too many things going on at once.
Welcome to my blog - all knitting, all cats, all the time ...come in, get warm and share your thoughts and pics --- it's all good! Mewsings, scratchings, and a long nap in the sun....
