Yay!!!! and State of the Knitting

Hey, look! I finished something!

It's too dark in here to get a decent picture right now, but I had to tell you all immediately that I just finished the baby sweater I've been working on on and off for months. I am SO excited. I've been in a finishing mood the last few days... the WIPs were getting out of control again.

Aside from the above sweater, here's what I've been working on:

1. Dishcloths Thanks to Jennifer, I've been on a dishcloth kick. I've made two in the past week (pictures soon) and have printed out patterns for several more. Wheee.

2. Afghan Squares I'm finishing up my fourth (and probably last) square for Rebuilding Greensburg.

3. Shawls I'm inching along slooowly on an easy lace one for me, to leave at the office, and a harder lace one for the widow of the uncle who passed away in April.

4. Socks I have four socks at various stages. One is on the foot, and moving along nicely except that I messed up the hank-to-ball process somewhere and it keeps tangling, so I've been only working on it at home. Two are about ready for heels, so I have to figure out what I want to do with them. And the fourth I started on Saturday because obviously none of the other three were appropriate for mindless knitting at an outdoor concert.

5. Shrug The "practice" version of I Do (for my friend to wear at her wedding) is somewhere between half and two thirds done. Then the recipient (who lives in another state) has to try it on, and we have to figure out any necessary adjustments, and then we have to find yarn that matches the beading on her gown, and then I can knit it again. Luckily, the wedding isn't until March.

6. Sweater I haven't touched Arwen in months, but this week I've been itching to get back to it. I'm hoping to have it done by fall. I have the back done, and part of one of the fronts.

And, of course, there are a bunch of things I want to start, but I'm trying to finish up a few more first. Let's hope this bout of finishitis lasts...

Oh, the oh-so-rare finishitis! Enjoy it.

Good for you! Can't wait to see some pics. I'm stuck in startitis mode, unfortunately...I even bought another book last night :) Just what I need.
