I’m now in the last of the four balls of yarn for the baby blanket. It’s such a cute little thing; the yarn is soft and I love the texture of the garter mixed with stockinette squares. One more repeat of the blocks and then I’ll do the top border.

I can feel myself shifting into a phase of finish-it-up-itis. Considering that all of my favorite needles now have a project on them and I’m out of project bags, this is a good thing. Once this blanket is done, I have a cabled hat that is 3/4 finished – honestly, the last bit would go pretty quickly if I’d just do it. And then there’s a pair of mitts that just need thumbs. After that, perhaps I’ll get back to working on one of the (several) shawls I have in progress. Or one of the (several) blankets under way. Or the socks. Or that double-knit hat. Or… hmm, maybe I need to have a meeting with all my WIPs, since I’m not even certain how many I have at the moment. I blame it on my daughter’s cat – I have to hide all of my knitting, and she’s quite good at ferreting out yarny goodness; this means that my knitting is also hidden from ME, and so I lose track of what I’m working on and it’s easier to just start a new project. That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it!
