Rainy days and Sundays are perfect days to knit. My diligent efforts to keep my (active) project total to 4 projects weakens in the fall.
At present I have 8 projects on needles. Half of them are hibernating. One of them stays at Westport Yarns.
I couldn’t decide between the remaining three, so I knit them in my version of Round Robin.
First I knit on Waffles with Wonderland Yarns March Hare (Worsted: 100% Merino, 184 yards). This is a baby gift for a baby due the beginning of December. For those of you who took part in the vote, you might like to know that 11 people voted for the Waffles blanket and 3 people voted for the Collina Blanket. Pretty much a landslide vote. Thanks for playing; it makes me very happy. 😉
During the afternoon I sorted through the piles of patterns I accumulate. They went into the following piles: “I think I have yarn for this”, “file for future consideration”, “I want to knit now(ish)”, and “potential class projects”.
In the evening I knit on Linientreu for an upcoming class at Westport Yarns. This (for me) is pure fun, outside the box knitting. I’m enjoying how the color plays out.
That being said, I must admit when I hit a lonnnggg stretch of yellow, I cut my yarn and rejoined to the purply pinks. Yarns: Cascade Heritage Sock (Fingering: 75% Wool, 25% Nylon, 437 yards) and Mille Colori Baby (Fingering: 100% Wool, 208 yards).

Fair is fair, they all moved forward. Although it is frustrating, I am holding off casting on for yet another project. Holiday/gift projects live at the top of the queue. When my time becomes my own, I want to cast on for Crosby with Harrisville Designs WATERshed (Worsted: 100% Wool, 110 yards).
