…oh yeah. y’all know this all too well. but it kind of slapped me in the face (in that only-for-fun way, promise!) and made me pay attention in the last 24 hours.
If you follow me on instagram, you saw this late yesterday afternoon.
Yes, that is a sweater. for me. and it will be a true finished object as soon as it dries and I can sew on the buttons. tomorrow I hope because I have plans to wear it on Friday.
and then this morning, you saw this.
Like Martha said, I’m cranking out the projects.
…and planning new ones. at a rapid rate. Here’s my queue on Ravelry:

Yep, I bought three patterns yesterday. and today I bought yarn. and swatched and cast on for that first one.
|#1 – Dresden, using Fibre Co Savannah DK|
and took nice glamour shots of the three next-up ones in my queue.
|#2 – Garance, using the suggested yarns – fiber and color ways!|
|#3 – Silk Cloud Pullover, using Kidsilk Haze from (deep 2007) stash|
|#4 – Eternity Scarf, using Shibui Heichi (what I’ll have left once I finish Garance)|
It was only three short weeks ago that I wrote about feeling different about my knitting. and I do still feel different about my knitting. there’s only one “all new” (new yarn and new pattern) project (Dresden) in that short list of next-ups. I did have to buy three skeins of silk cloud for the Garance and of course those three patterns… but still. I know I can really use all of these pieces. and I specifically chose the color for Dresden to pair well with tops and bottoms I already own. (yes, that’s a new thing for me!)
I’m curious to see if/how this sticks. will it last? or will I be frogging projects in favor of new patterns by this time next month? we’ll see. I’ll keep you posted!
