So, I am the type of knitter that feels most comfortable with one big project on the needles. I can do one big project and one small (1 sweater and 1 small something) but that really is my comfort zone. I truly lose sleep when I have too many projects started. Crazy, I know. Usually, I resist the temptation to start something new. Lately, not so much. I have four things on the needles. That sort of makes me nervous.
Number 1: I knit with six others (non-bloggers) once a week. I have for years. And we decided to do a little knit-a-long. So, last week I cast on for the wool bam boo rickrack pullover. This project will be slow going as I hand out the starting/stopping points. Last week I gave them an eight row assignment. (See, this one will take a while.)
Number 2: I ordered another cone of the habu merino for my kusha kusha scarf, because I ran short. It arrived last week. (Darn.) This may seem like a "little" project, but knitting with string sort of turns this into a big project.
Number 3: My plisse. Yes. The project that has captured my attention. Above is a shot of half of the back and one sleeve. The construction of the Hanne Falkenberg sweaters are what keep you going. Keep you wanting more. Mostly done in one piece with very little finishing. Gotta love that.
