Maybe if I talk about it...

Every so often I fret about having too many projects on the go. Isn't it true that all but the most disciplined and organized of us start new projects before finishing the old ones? Nothing new there. And isn't it a good idea to alternate between a project on tiny needles and one on larger needles in order to exercise different muscle groups? Yes, you non knitters - this IS a legitimate consideration. AND, as Rabyll commented to me at the last RKG meeting, we knit because it amuses us and when a project ceases to amuse you, why not move on to another one?

These considerations sooth my conscience for a while, but I'm feeling a bit scattered. I'm having a hard time finishing anything up at all this week. Here are the projects that I keep picking up with limited results (we won't speak of the ones that I haven't worked on in 6 months or longer):

- A pair of brown socks: doesn't the mere mention just put you to sleep?

- The blue Twilley's of Stamford cardigan:…

Even Warmer Under the Coat

OKAY, I had to promise to make dinner in order to get my husband to take these photos. And I did too. Ginger carrot soup and pork medallions with the sh-te pounded out of them. Why is it so hard to get men to take photos of knitting?  
Sorry I had to crop the rest of these photos the way I did, but by the end of the day, I'm lucky if I get one picture of myself where I don't look completely shattered.
I was very encouraged by the compliments I got at work. Yes, I wore it under my coat, but then I wore it just like this all day and people who don't usually comment unless they really like something were saying, "well done." That was nice.

It wore well, stayed in place, looked great over a black shirt and proved especially practical as the thermostat in my office has been officially turned down to save energy. I think this would be a great warm-up garment for people who work in store fronts, cafes or plain freezing offices.

Here's the back:

Another of the front. It&…
