updated list

one of the small annoyances about living in Fl has become  larger one, by virtue of having created this blog. Storm season is upon us and we have had several impressive ones lately. As far as i know, the only victim of them was my poor internet service. Everyone in this house is far too dependant on technology, myself included.

As a result, You’d think i would be all set with the challenge list, right? Well, I was, until I went to the library and found a couple of books on color knitting and socks, and then finally a Nicky Epstein book. Also, I had to frog my tunic because I have lost 20 lbs since i started it.

Anyway, my new list is a little ambitious. As my husband says, there is no kill like over kill. I’ll probably never get through it, but here we go.

plus the reworking of my falling leaves tunic and the windmill bag i promised my sister.

all totalling 17 projects.  This includes no charity project for the nicu like i do for Ethan’s b-day in march or any knitting for Christmas.

I haven’t decided on any yarns yet but i will fill in the info as we go.

Is anyone undecided on whether they are going to start more than one project at a time? I think I’m going to cast on a least one project for the car, another for appts, and at least one for at home when my peanut is sleeping.

I’m trying to catch up on my swatching today and also everyone else’s blogs.

  1. “No kill like over kill” – love it!

    Good luck with your projects and congratulations on losing 20lbs!

    I will have more than one project on the go at once – one that I can do whilst my 3year old is awake and one for evenings/childcare. Probably a handbag-sized off-list one for waiting rooms.

  2. I’m going to work on more than one at a time as I have a few larger projects and some smaller for variety and also, like you say, some which are more portable than others. I started with 2 WIPs for this reason too.

    Good luck with your list – I’m looking forward to seeing how you get on.

    Great reason to redo the tunic! I’ve got two of my projects in active rotation and I intend to add a third just as soon as the needles arrive. I have another project which is on time out because it is just so much fun to knit that as soon as I pick it up everything else goes to the wayside. So I intend wait until some of the more pressing stuff is out of the way before I pick it up again. I’ll probably pick it up before then knowing me though. 😉

  4. Definitely need a project for every contingency. 🙂 I’ve got a car project, easy project, waiting project… Good luck!

  5. Thank you for all the comments about my weight loss. I was feeling pretty upset about having to frog my best attempt at a sweater ( I got gauge and everything) until you reminded me that it’s a pretty cool reason to have to reknit it.

    Hope everyone had a fantastic fourth!
