Life of a WIPaholic
It seems to me that I have not done anything else lately but started new projects.
That one is a baby blanket, started today, while sitting in the market place. It is very annoying that the people across ours are selling, ahem, yarns, too. I bought the baby yarn from them. I am not very happy that I have temptations staring at me, when I am trying to avoid yarn buying binges.
I made a baby hat before I started the blanket.
The blue baby hat was one of the earlier WIPs, which I finished as soon as I got home this afternoon.
When I was on my way to the market, I passed the Walkers for the cure.
It was good to see all the women and men walking and I felt a touch of being part of the project. I am knitting the Campanula for the cure socks, which was designed by a lady who is participating in this weekend walk.
Unfortunately the yarn I started with, the pink one, was a little bit too heavy for the stitch gauge, and I had to dig into my stash to find another yarn. I found a royal blue yarn that just smiled at me with excitement. The picture is of the start, at the point where I am now working on the heel.
I also have a sweater, for me, on the go, plus several other socks, almost done.
I am not too happy with my way of starting new projects, but I am way too restless these days to pay attention to just one project.
