Yarn Along and Along and Along.....

It's Wednesday and you know what that means here.  It's time to discuss the knitting and reading that is currently happening.  The reading - still working on my 50 Shades occasionally.  I got back into it while I was on vacation.  I will probably get to read it a bit this weekend.  I have to admit that my choice when I am knitting these days is catching up on podcasts.  But back to the knitting.

While I was packing up some knitting to take with me on the cruise I perused the project bags.  It seems I have quite a few UFO's hanging about.
I love my bags.  Speaking of bags that is one of my projects for the weekend.  To organize them all.  I am way too scattered these days.  But back on topic...

I started with the project with a size deadline.  If I don't get this sweater done soon the baby will outgrow it so it moved up on the priority list.

I always have a sock going and this is the one and only pair I have on the needles.
I just love those colors.  We went to a baseball game Monday night and I got a lot done while sitting there.  That's why I love socks!

I can't believe I actually have to buy more yarn to finish this project.
I thought this market bag would be a great stash buster.  It busted the stash, but I don't have much else to go with those colors.  I guess I will have to look for a sale on cotton.  Buy more yarn?  Bummer....

I forgot about my Entwined Shoulder Shawl.  I love this pattern.
I'll be picking this up again soon.  I got side tracked with baby knitting.

This shawl....
is in time out.  I am frustrated and I don't have the patience lately to figure out the edging.  It's nobody's fault but my own.  I improvised and it's making it difficult to finish.  I love the yarn though and that will make me finish it.  One day.  Maybe soon.

So that's what's on the needles.  Did I mention that Tour De Fleece started this week?

Your UFOs are lovely, but mostly I am jealous of your project bags. I just use large zip lock bags, not nearly so pretty! I may have to get some for myself. :-)

That bottom shawl is gorgeous! I hope it behaves so you can get it done.

Susan said...

Wow, that's a lot of UFOs--you almost have as many as I do. : ) I love your project bags!

You've got to watch out for those baby sweaters...and the yarn that's intended for baby sweaters. I'm going through my stash and frogging projects that I started when my now seven and eight year olds were tiny. :-)
