Don't Have Much to Show

As the title may suggest, I've no camera at my disposal at the moment; despite this fact, I am going to use this post to proclaim that I am a changed knitter. Sort of.

My proclamation here is to urge myself forward, and actually finish all the projects I've started
in a timely fashion. (d'ya like the bold and italics there? I'm getting savvy, mate).
Those nifty little ticker factory tickers at the bottom of the page will count me down to victory. As soon as I get back on track, I can discard the deadlines, and be a normal, organized, sane knitter once more.

Here is the schedule:

February 7 - Molly Ringwald (yeah, didn't see that one coming, eh? I started it 2 days ago, and now, according to my progress bars, I'm 80% done. Oh yes, there have been late nights).

February 14 -Eiffel (I've tried it on, and the fit is good. Now to move on to the sleeves... then the yoke... then the blocking...)

February 28 - Fair Isle U-Neck from VK. It's deadly cold, and I must take advantage of the weather and have my FI sweater, made from Knit Picks Elegance (an alpaca blend). When the hell else are you to wear an insulating alpaca top if not in -20 degree situations?

March 10 - Handmaiden Sweater. Once again, the pretty golden top has been shafted. I'm at a bit of a stand-still on this one, seeing as how I'm designing it myself. I think I know how I want the neckline to look. And the sleeves will be 3/4 length.

In and amongst these deadline are the other little "finishing" type WIPs, like my Mystery Garn Studio one (which is soooo close) and the Clapotis, the Trigger Bag, etc... Perhaps also a hat or two. Cause, really, when the hell else are you gonna wear a touque?

*note: this photo is my lovely collection of current favourite teas. Not knitting? So what. They're pretty. Deal with it.

I didn't think about trying on Eiffel yet, even though I have the body done - good idea! I'm going to do that. Maybe that will spark my interest in getting those sleeves DONE already.

If it's easy for me to try things on as I go, I do it. I've had one too many mishaps! I hate frogging, and will do almost anything to avoid it.

Ooh, creme caramel tea? Sounds delish. Those sound like reasonable deadlines... A little difficult. You can do it though. Stay on track!
