I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

After the excitement of the last few days, I have landed back on earth. However, it hit my like a ton of bricks that the month of February is over! Hey, I need a couple more days to finish these projects! See, at the beginning of the year, I decided to organize my knitting life and make sure I finish a certain number of projects each month. If at all possible, I would make one pair of socks, knit one charity project for a child, and make a sweater or a shawl. Plus keep working on the designs for submission.

This is where it's at:

This little pink sweater -- the eyesockets you see are pocket openings -- is not finished. Started in January. Size 4. Encore Worsted, size 8 needles.

This baby sweater for the little guy next door is not done. Started last Tuesday, artyarns, size 6 needles.

This colorful pair of socks, not done. Finished the first sock last summer. Found it all lonely in a basket, crying for a mate. Opal Lollipop, size 1.5 needles.

This purply pair did get finished, and delivered, yesterday. Started on Monday. Size 8 needles, so FAST! They're for A4A. Wool/alpaca yarn.
I am soldiering on. I realized that the ton of bricks that hit me is actually a cold that is sitting on my sinuses like a baby elephant. The pressure, the pressure! No wonder I would not keep my eyes open last night just to finish the Opal sock. No wonder I am telling you the projects aren't finished when you can clearly see that they are not.
I'll see you in a couple of days, when I've wriggled my way out from under the baby elephant.

But your camera is working again, hooray! And I'm so glad that I'm not the only one whose knitting life looks like this.
