If I don’t stop starting I will never finish! July 31, 2007

What is wrong with me?  I just keep starting things.  I am so close on the top down cardi.  Alright, I am annoyed that I was "technically" finished and had to lengthen the sleeves.  And I am down to the foot on the Neopolitan socks.  I think I have them as designated "waiting room" socks.

Ruffles_ridges_from_marilyn There was no reason Another_baby_blanket to start a baby blanket.  At least it is stash yarn!  Although, I did buy a few more to supplement.  It is really just an inbetweener project.  I also started a Ruffles & Ridges shawl in the yarn my friend Marilyn gave me.  The alpaca is lovely to work with.  I don’t think I have ever knit a ruffle before and an i-cord edging is new to me also.

The second sleeve of St. Brigid sits at row 2.  Sigh.  I also started a Clapotis for the shop.  I was using Plymouth Royal Bamboo for a simple tank top but wasn’t thrilled with it and saw on Ravelry that a few had used it–quite happily–on Clapotis. 

My brother is visiting this weekend with his wife and daughter.  Gracie adores her cousin–she’s in high school.  And we are planning to go see They Might Be Giants with the kids.  Owen’s never been to a concert or show.  Hopefully, with his new ADHD medicine, he can handle it.  We think we have seen an improvement.  Hurray!

    All good news! It’s ok to start new things (as you know I think it’s ok);-)…as long as you’re knitting. It’s great to hear Owen is doing better!

    I wish I could start something that will catch. Swallowtail is in the crapper at the moment. Why oh why do I forget yarn overs! Here I thought I was on my way to becoming a lace knitter;)

    I like that blanket. I may have to think about doing some kind of squares blanket to use up those leftover balls that are threatening to take over my stash.

    I’m glad you’re seeing improvement with the medication. Every little bit can help. Kind of jealous about the They Might Be Giants concert though;)
