I’m just gonna put this right up front. I started two new projects this weekend. That puts me at 11. I’m feeling a slight tinge of guilt about breaking the 10 project limit rule. Thank goodness there are no knitting police.
I could try to rationalize my over eager casting on in lots of ways but mostly it comes down cashmere. I just can’t resist! This first cashmere project should really be grandfathered in. It’s been in and out of the queue all year.
I think I’ve finally gotten it right! I love this combo of yarns, Crystal Palace Panda Silk (bamboo, merino, silk, fun!) and Filatura Di Crosa Superior Cashmere (the same yarn my recent cashmere cardigan used!). I was happy to frog things that weren’t working. This time though, there are no frogs in sight!
The pattern is Southern Skies, a circular shawl with beads to match the constellations of the southern hemisphere! I’ve wanted to knit this for a while but I’m not into the circular shape…so now I’ve combined the pattern with yarn ear marked as a gift. Two birds with one stone…this is going to be an awesome gift and I get knit the pattern without fretting over if I’ll like it! So far, I love it…it’s a lot of fun to knit! I stayed up way to late last night working on this one!
Cashmere number two…
Pepperberry Knits Mini Skeins! Sport weight, 100% Cashmere, Awesome Colors! It was Friday. I was ‘celebrating’ the new job. It’s cashmere?!? Of course, it had to come home with me. I had 10 projects on the needles but resistance was futile. Plus, I needed something easy to work on at the new job. The return of lunch time knitting is the best thing about having to go to an office for a couple weeks!
The chartreuse comes next!! I can’t wait to add the colors!!!
And now, I absolutely, positively, without a doubt, cannot, under any circumstances start a new project. (today.)
