I was so planning on showing you every Wednesday what I had on my needles and what I was working on, but wait - it's already Friday! Where did this week go?
I finally got my yarn order and now my stash is once again over-flowing with pretty skeins. These past few days I've been mostly knitting Magnus's birthday sweater (which is already over a month late) - it's the Jackdaw from Brooklyn Tweed's BT Men Volume 2 collection. I've now finally got the back ready and I've started knitting the front. At this moment I'm just past the bottom ribbing and a few rows in the chart.
I'm anxious to see how it looks when it's blocked and the cables relax a bit. The texture is quite unlike anything else I've ever knitted, and while it's quite easy to memorise, I don't really find it very intuitive so it doesn't make good TV knitting.
Even though I'm most certainly not a monogamous knitter (at this moment I think I have 8 or 9 unfinished projects) I usually concentrate on one thing for a few days and switch to something else when I get bored. In addition to what is my go-to-project at that moment I always need to have at least one really easy (like stockinette stitch in a round) project that I can work on when watching movies with Magnus, because he gets irritated if I constantly ask him to press pause when I need to check my chart or other instructions. So the "easy" project I've been working on has been my Socktober socks. I've now finished mine and the baby's. That means I only have Magnus's socks left. The pattern (Rye socks by Tin Can Knits) is surprisingly easy and I was really amazed how quick they were to knit. Still they look much more complicated than they actually are. Here they are, straight off the needles and still unblocked.
I'm interested, how about you guys, do you mostly just concentrate on one or two projects or are you more like me, starting a ton of stuff and then alternating between them? Do you have many WIPs waiting to be finished?
