I’ve got some serious start-itis going on. I keep starting projects and then quickly growing bored.
I learned recently that I don’t much enjoy intarsia knitting. It’s not that I can’t do it, I can do it fine. I just don’t enjoy the mass amounts of ends all over the place, and being the sort of person who doesn’t enjoy weaving in ends AND who doesn’t weave in the ends until she’s completely done in the event that there may be some form of serious error that may cause the ripping-out of whatever project it is, well, yeah.
I’m about 4” into a pretty sock from the Knit Socks book, 3 balls into a reversible cabled scarf from Scarf Style using Touch Me yarn (that was on sale and a lot cheaper than normal), 60 rows into an intarsia bag (Wobbly Circles from a recent issue of Interweave Knits) that will eventually be felted, once I’ve knitted the whole thing and sewn it all together and weaved in all of the stupid annoying ends (GAHHH!), nearly done with a tote bag made with Noro Iro (I need to knit one of the handles, sew it on and finish sewing on the other one), and I started that “Ruffles” Scarf from Scarf Style using some more Kureyon that I bought.
And then of course, last night I bought yarn for a chemo cap I’ll be knitting for a friend’s mother in law, more yarn for Ene’s Scarf from Scarf Style (mini-review: buy this book, if you haven’t purchased it already. This is the first book I’ve wanted to make most of the designs from.) and for Color on Color, also from Scarf Style.
I think I have enough projects in the trap to keep me busy for like five years, not to mention all the random WIPs that are stashed away in boxes. If only I didn’t have any other obligations and could just knit all the time. Seriously.
