1.  Dale Salt Lake City 2002 for Kevin.  Considering this is now 2007–this project has been marinating for a loooong time.  I am nearly up to the patterning.

2.  St. Brigid for me.  When did I start that KAL?  I did a bit of work but need to tink a row to get restarted.

3.  A baby blanket for my SIL using 501.  I think the baby is due in 2 weeks.

4.  The sleeve on my leftover worsted Dulaan sweater.

5. 4 pulsewarmers–mates to 4 I have already knitOne and a half more pairs to go, I think.

6.  Shetland Triangle Shawl which is moving along nicelyGot to take a picture some day!

7.  The Birds Nest Shawl from Folk Shawls.  Not even sure I have looked at it.

8.  While I haven’t wound the yarn…I have it in my head to knit a Colinette throw for my sister.  Again, stash yarn.  The Velvet Throw is #14.  She says she wants it….must do it but not during the warm weather.

9.  Brea pocketbook that I started for the shop a million years ago.

10.  Decide if I really want to knit this sweater in the color I have in the stash…  Gosh, I can’t even find a picture in my archives.  Such a bad blogger!   Still undecided but leaning toward NO!

Progress has definately been made on this list.  I am somewhat uninspired my knits right now.  It’s like they are all being naughty and ganging up on me.  Rip sock, rip sleeves on Kersti cardi, cotton is hard on the hands.  I tried to use some old Fiesta La Boheme that I treated myself to for my 30th birthday.  I think it needs to go in the garbage can.  $60 worth of yarn that never found the right pattern and is now matted and gross. 

Srpt_009 Owen is waking up in the middle of the night and the wee hours of the morning.  Sleep deprivation is such torture.  Today I am working his school’s book fair else I would be back in bed after they all leave.  I think exhaustion makes everything look bleak.  And the Dell died again!  The warranty goes through September so I guess we will try to get it repaired again.  I think this is the 5th time.  Argh.

    Is there a “lemon law” for computers? I think you might have a case…

  2. Carole Says:

    Progress is good. I’m hoping you can focus on that. And I’m also hoping that Owen goes back to a regular sleep pattern.

  3. Nancy Says:

    Sleep deprivation is the absolute worst. I don’t want anyone to even look at me the wrong way when I haven’t had a good night’s sleep. Of course the “wrong way” is open to my own interpretaion which may just mean it’s best not to look at me at all;)

    Carole is right, focus on the progress you’ve made. I’m quite impressed with you!

  4. Chris Says:

    Maybe you can nap through the book fair? Hope you find relief soon.

  5. Kathy Says:

    Exhaustion is so tough — I’m hoping that his sleep gets better. I look forward to seeing the Shetland Triangle — such a pretty pattern.

    Knitting shouldn’t be ‘hanging over our heads’. You’ve made good progress. Anything that isn’t something you love should be discarded. Sending good thoughts and vibes that you and Owen find some relaxing down time soon.

  7. Carol Says:

    I have sworn off Dell for the very reason. I won’t buy from them ever again.

  8. Kris Says:

    You’ve made a lot of progress. Afraid I can’t say the same. Loss of knitting mojo seems to be striking many of us here in bloglandia.

    Owen is a handsome little guy… way too perky for the middle of the night but handsome none the less. 🙂

    Praying the little guy gets a huge dose of sleepiness.

    I think you are making excellent progress, well done.
    Yeah, Sleep deprivation is aweful!!!
    Gil woke me up today at 06:00 to go watch TV…sheesh…and he always wants me to watch with him.

    A couple families we were very close to relocated this past winter…I think it was much worse for those of us left behind missing them…I hear lots about what good things the changes have brought into their lives!
