I have a confession...
I have WIP guilt. I have so many things on the needles and I am starting to want to stuff them in the back of the closet to muffle their little cries of "Knit me!" Oh... wait... not quite. ;)
In an effort to come clean and maybe get some help (so, bug me about these WIPs once in a while!) I'm going to post them all today.
So here goes in kinda-chronological order from oldest:
1. The Ribbed Ribbon Tank
I bought this yarn on sale to make the Ribbon X Back from knitty, but when I swatched I discovered that even though the yarn was supposed to be the right gauge I really didn't like the fabric. I tried going down to smaller needles, but I didn't like all that seed stitch. I decided to design my own tank, and I was afraid I wouldn't have enough yarn. This one might just get ripped.
2. Elizabeth I
This one doesn't have a good story, I just don't often have the time alone and the attention to dedicate to the chart. It also seems to be MIA... I think I packed it "somewhere safe".
3. Hush Hush
I intended this to be a long-term project, and it is. Also the yarn is on a cone so it's not very portable.
4. Fun Blanket
Another one that was intended to be long-term. Actually just whenever I get bored I'll work on it, although I do want to get it finished by December.
5. Felted Bag
I guess I'm just not feeling the love - it's a rather boring project. Although I should just get it done with cuz there's not much left to do.
6. Canal du Midi (greenish)
I don't have a good excuse, except that I kept taking the needles out for other projects.
7. Test Knit (pictured above, brown)
These are recent so I don't need an excuse. :)
8. Hippy Crunchy
20 row lace chart. That's all I have to say.
Now that is just pathetic!
What was supposed to be mindless knitting has now scared me when I read about problems others were having with the pattern.
My cabled scarf. This project is for me, and I won't need it til next winter, hence no motivation. Also "somewhere safe".
12. Mystic Sea (tiny)
Socks started at sock camp, and I have had other more deadline-oriented items.
13. Lichen Rib (blue above)
These are actually progressing quite nicely.
P.S. There are actually two more scarves that I started in fits of boredom that have no intended recipient or purpose, so I'm not really counting those.
So, what do I intend to *do* about this? Well I am setting a goal to finish four of these
items in May. Not just four items, cuz then I would just start and finish new stuff. It will probably help that I dragged them all out of their hiding places and now have them relatively organized and accessible.
