I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

"WIPing" startitis

Oh startitis, how you creep up on me. The lure of new yarn pulls me in and the pattern intrigues. And then you leave me with several partially done projects. What a tease!

Some new side affects include a pinwheel cloth that makes short rows fun and a mystery loom-a-long that has me wondering "what will it be?" Older symptons are too numerous to count (poncho, chunky socks, kitchen cloth, bunny wabbit, Yarn Bee blanket, etc.) I've made some progress since those linked photos but not nearly enough to document.

And as soon as my new fine-gauge sock loom arrives in the mailbox, we know what will happen. Berroco Sox metallic yarn, I'm looking at you.

At least one project that was left behind came back this week. Sure, the snake hat has mega-tight cables that made my wrist twist in pain. But I figured out how to decrease those cables into something easier on me. I like my snake again and I think we'll get along for a few weeks.

I'm not cured from startitis though. A felted purse for my grandma calls me. And I think it's justified. It's a birthday present. Her birthday was in January. Oooh, such pretty alpaca and wool yarn! And it's a stash-buster for some orphan skeins. Can you help me chose colors for stripes?

Hmm, what will I knit tonight?
