Start as Many New Projects as You Can

That's the title of an article in the Spring 2009 issue of Interweave Knits -- and I'm likin' it! I am on a knitting jag right now; I put it down to the unusually cold (for March) weather we've been experiencing up here in the Great White North.

Projects? Have I got projects?! I've got a 2nd sock to start for the pair of "Hope" Socks I've been working on. Meanwhile those lovely Guernsey Socks (scroll down) are taking shape, and the front of my Climbing Vines Pullover is just rows away from the armhole shaping (for a glimpse, scroll down some more). And yesterday I started Jeff's Pub Sweater (IK, Spring 2009; see the link above) for my son. If I work hard at it, he might just get it for his 24th birthday in June. Yeah, it gets really hot in Lethbridge during the summer, but with the autumn...he'll get plenty of wear out of it. What? Me worry?

Having joined Ravelry (I'm MarginMirror), jumping in with both feet, I've copied out a pattern for a circular blanket and a baby hat to try and catch up with the rest of the BUTS -- that's Burning Up The Stash... 'scuse me. I have to get back to my knitting.
