I finished up the languishing crazy spring socks on Saturday. I really like them and even wore them yesterday. They still need a good soak, but they fit really nicely. My bind-off may have been a bit loose (I went up a few needle sizes), but so far they don't slouch when I wear them. Despite the long time to complete, I would call them a success. With those socks complete, I currently only have the red swingy garter sweater on my needles. (To be completely honest, I also have the granny square blanket in progress, but I won't work on that until I have time and space to lay it out and seam it.)
Annabel sweater. I think once I decide, I will be able to quickly finish it. I only have the sleeves and two skeins of yarn. Once I run out of yarn, I am finished!
With only the sweater on my needles and my indifference to it, I had a brief moment of panic. What do I knit? I have a couple projects at the ready, but none I feel like doing. Too many projects are zooming around my head. I am starting to worry about the gift giving season and what I want to make. I am also feeling selfish and wanting to knit for myself. I made the kiddos' hats for this year, so those are done. Now what? Oh, the indecision! Currently, I am thinking about a hat and mitt combo for me in a bright orange yarn I have. Then I have a couple dolls to make, a shawl for the Pokemon-loving Eamon, a bright pink poncho for Aine and another sweater for me. And of course I should also cast-on for a new pair of socks.
While muddling through this period of in-between, I have been reading here and there. I started A Prayer for Owen Meany
last week and was really enjoying it. Then a book I had been reading on my eReader was available from the library again. The first time I read it, the book had to be returned before I finished. I checked it back out and am trying to finish it quickly so I can return to Owen. With so much to do and read, I think I better get moving. First, though, there is yarn to wind.
