I've managed to knock off quite a few projects over the last few weeks. I took this photo about a month ago I guess, and I've managed to finish every item in that messy pile. In fact I only have 2 current outstanding WIPS - one is secret knitting business, affectionately dubbed 'big red' and is currently 85% finished, and the other is a pair of socks I'm knitting for Amber - both projects are still enjoyable but I'm definitely feeling a pull towards casting on something new - what that is, I'm not entirely certain. I've accumulated some nice sock yarn lately, but I really don't know that I could face socks again right now. I really do want to knit from stash too, which is not really a limiting option, considering I have quite a bit of lovely yarn in it, but it seems that everything I do want to knit doesn't quite fit the yarn I have. I'm considering knitting the Tangled Yoke Cardigan, which is totally out-of-season, but I'm definitely feeling the need to begin a new, challenging, and sizable project. The plus with this project is that I have the yarn here, ready and waiting to start. I guess the other thing that is making me hesitant to start, is Christmas gift-knitting hanging over my head. I've pretty much finished all my knit gifts for my knit-pals, but I've challenged myself to knit gifts for all my sister-in-laws too, which I'm now finding myself lacking motivation to do - gah! I should stop stalling and just get on with it!
