Must Take Pictures!

This is a little note to self that I need to take pictures of Snow White, Wheel on Fire and The Gray Flannel Purse (that is not gray, nor flannel).  I have been furiously knitting…not necessarily because of the past holiday, but just because.  Knitting is a great stress reliever…and I’ve got lots of stress hence the knitting and not posting.  So, this weekend’s task is to take pictures of these 3 projects that are recently finished.  As life would have it, I have taken pictures of the other 2 projects that I finished over the holiday…Elijah (White Elephant Style) and Piggle.  Consequently, they were also projects that were finished either in tandem or after the other 3.

I decided to make a New Years Resolution to start more projects at once, so I can move in between them and parallelize my knitting a bit.  So far, so good.  I managed to start and almost complete Danica on a road trip up North.  I started Roam from Knitty Fall 2007, which is an endless sea of seed stitch, hence the need for more projects to jump to and fro from.  It really is turning out quite lovely…I chose to double strand laceweight yarn and the result is a beautiful limited pooling in the yarn and a lighter in weight fabric…I have to remember this trick when I want to knit something light weight that won’t feel like a sack of potatos when you put it on.

Because I Don’t Have Enough UFO’s

I have ventured into starting two new projects at once.  One of them, I am almost finished with.

Promptly after finishing the Emma Jacket aka most hellacious pattern to follow ever…I started Snow White.  Firstly, I love this pattern, despite the mountains of 2X2 rib.  It is cleverly designed and the pattern gets an A+ in the easy to follow / presentation area.  Consequently, I’ve had no room to bitch about it on this blog…because it is a delightful pattern to follow.  Even better, she adds these little comments into the pattern, so when you get finished with a part…say binding off…where you are wondering if that last stitch on your right needle is to be bound off or knit in pattern with the four stitches on the left needle…she explains exactly what to do, so there is no question on what is to be done.  A designer that writes patterns answering knitterly questions on the way!   Hooray!  Seriously, this was just the break I needed after the jacket.
