Let's take inventory, shall we, of what we have OTN. After my June debacle of the summer sweater I lost my knitting mojo for a while.*
There is the red sweater. I started it three times, and have now made enough modifications to the pattern that I think it's going to work. This is my only fun project right now. It's Girl-child's birthday/Christmas gift. Since it's August I have to get cracking on it (especially in case I end up having to rip it out to re-knit it!).
Yes, that stockinette really curls up before it's blocked and without the button band. The lace around the top will look great when it's blocked, I think, and it will have a little of the same around the bottom of the sleeves too.
I have the socks which were started in April. Both heels have been turned since ages ago; it's time to decide who the recipient will be so I can finish the feet.
And I have a pair of navy socks started for Boy-child ... not easy to get excited about.
I was thinking I should be done with Christmas knitting before I go on the cruise, although that may not be very realistic. I plan to make a scarf for The Gypsy's son too, as a thank-you for putting us up the night before the cruise on his hotel points.
Living in the lap of luxury, I am!
*Perhaps my knitting is suffering because my life not quite so out of whack now? I don't seem to be focused enough to get much knitting done these days. When I think about how many pairs of socks I used to churn out every year it makes me wonder.
