My answer to SASC

SASC- short attention span crafting.
It occurred to me that for maximum craft happiness, I need to give myself permission to start as many new projects as I desire! All those sweaters listed on the side-bar, I gleefully cast on or resumed knitting in the past week. Tee, hee. Feeling naughty, but I also feel empowered, if that makes any sense?

Another method to my madness is that I have undertaken the sleeves first, if the garment is not a one-piece. Like scarves, these are nice and portable. They are perfect for commuting, lunch hours or phone calls! Amazingly, they dont feel like the knitting abyss as when knitted as the last part of the project.

If I am tired of looking at the same color, feeling the same yarn, using the same technique, day after day, problem solved! As long as I am making progress on something, I'm happy.
Is this the definition of a process knitter that the Yarn Harlot speaks of? :)


What I did over summer break

With my desire for yarn hoarding finally satiated, I've been trying to make a dent in some of my WIPs. It's been quite rewarding to finish the Knitty Kyoto sweater that I began eons ago.

Next up is another baby sweater and blanket. If I have the sticktoitiveness, then perhaps the Klaralund sweater and my Oscar the Grouch Pouch will follow.

Most proud of this baby sweater for my sweet cousin. Hope that she gets a couple of seasons wear from it. The Knit N'Style April '07 Flower Garden Sweater was so cute that I put everything on hold once I got the right yarn. Used Brown Sheep's Cotton Fleece, two skeins as the main color. Unfortunately, I ran out of yarn and did not get to complete the crocheted edging. Misc. cotton and cottonblend yarn was used for the flowers.
