Comin' Down Off My High

The weekend is still a blur. I'm still tired and feeling drained, then hyper. Slightly manic? Yeah.

I had to put everything on hold knitting-wise until I finished the shawl. Now I feel like I have nothing to do. But I have more things on the needle than I'm comfortable with.

First, MS3. With all honesty, I'm not loving the idea of the wing. I've seen only a couple of photos of clue five finished and it doesn't make me say WOW! like the beginning of the stole did. So, I have a feeling I'm going to be learning kitchener's stitch quick or figuring out how to do her charts backwards.

Second, the red Valpuri. It's due the 13th and I don't have the strength for it. I'm bored, I admit it.

Third, the surprise blue cabled sweater. I have the sleeves and the fronts to do, but since I have so much time (it's due in Oct.) I feel like I can procrastinate more.

Fourth, pick a baby, any baby. I have 5 friends/relatives who are expecting. I have 1 sweater done. Even with my limited math skills I know it's not enough baby stuff. It's not like I can expect them to share, right?
And fifth, Hubs says I can't go to Rhinebeck unless he has a sweater, completed and wearable. Anyone know any men's easy v-neck sweater patterns? It's got to go up to a xxl. Damn it, why didn't I marry a goldfish??

I'm doing the wing, if you want to see in (or part of it) on Wednesday. Also, I love the Spring Things Shawl--especially the points and beads. I wimped out on the mystery stole beads, but I'll definitely have to try beads instead of nupps.

And I'm so relieved you wore panties!

Oh, but the wing in MS3 is so much fun to knit. You should at least give it a try - I am enjoying the process a lot, and the lace pattern is very pretty methinks.

How about this for the hubby sweater: you could tell him that you need to pick a good yarn for him FROM Rhinebeck. As for pattern, the one in the latest IK looks like a fun pattern to make.

I'm doing the wing also, but I JUST finished Clue 3!!! Yes, I know I am super slow. Cobblestone is a cool pattern from brooklyntweed. I think it's published in IK that just came out. I'll bring the magazine with me Wednesday to show you (in case you don't have IK).

I am doing one of their patterns for me right now. Pretty straightforward instructions. I would really measure though. But, you probably knew that.

Look at you, cranking out the projects! Well done lady. And I totally second the vote for the Brooklyn Tweed pattern in the newest IK- it's a sexy kind of man knit.
