What I Want to be Knitting


I'm having one of those days when really all I want to do is knit, and maybe bake something. Of course, these moods have to strike when I have ABSOLUTELY NO TIME. (That's probably why the mood strikes, actually.) And I specifically want to be knitting things with interesting patterns that I have to pay attention to. It's been all baby blanket all the time around here, and my purse sock is mindless too, of course, and it's starting to drive me crazy. I spent a few big chunks of the long weekend knitting with Caitlin, and she was knitting things with actual patterns, and I was so so jealous. I did pull Arwen out and do about half a row and put it back in my "active WIPs" knitting bag. I'm getting very excited about Arwen again - if I can ever finish the baby blanket. I want to finish it by fall.

But, of course, most of the summer will be devoted to socks. I just got my first Socks that Rock (pictures soon, I promise) and I've decided on the Mad Color Weave pattern for it. And I can't wait to start the Poseidon socks. But I'm also dying to start some sort of really complicated lace shawl. And... I don't know... anything with a pattern that I actually need to read. Please? (I think the goal is to have the blanket done by the end of the week. I hope I hope I hope.)

Guess who has to take out the i-cord edging on the top of the Shoalwater Shawl? It is waaaaay to tight, and even though it looks okay on a person, it will bother me so I'm going to redo it. Keep plugging away at the baby blanket, it will get done soon!
