I'm hoping giving myself these marching orders will cut down on my crafting distractibility. Oh, call it what it is, outright attention deficit disorder. It's what led to a closet and a half full of yarn, a slew of unfinished projects, and a general sense of chaos.
I've winnowed the huge pile of Spirit Trail Fiberworks down to this:
Which I hope to turn into this:
1. Finish the (unpictured) unfinished:
Hidden Gusset Mitts
Glasgow Rose Shawl
Brigantia (Sweater Club 2014 blue) Laurie pullover Worked at a loose gauge, this should be a quick knit, and be a great sweater to wear with jeans. It is knit without seams, but I may add faux seams after the fact because I like the structure, and I am too lazy to work out how to knit it in pieces.
Verdande (Sweater Club 2014 red) Adventurous cardigan. A more ambitious project, but the yarn has excellent stitch definition and will do justice to the cables. This is a very long coat sweater. Since I may be a little short of yarn, the fact that it is knit from the top down is a plus.
Birte (Inkheart, Saffron, Glencoe, Graphite, Rosewood) Oslo Shawl. After much procrastination: color work. One knitter commented that this was a good beginning colorwork project.
Sunna (Knitting Club yarn crimson and green) Faberge. I have loved this pattern since the minute I saw it, and have dithered for years about what yarns to use. This one is knit from the ruffled edging up, which will be fun, and for although I am someone whose wardrobe resemble's that of a yoga-pant- wearing nun's, I do love a bit of beaded bling.
3. I'll be throwing in a design project or too, yarn to be announced.
Wish me luck.
*The auto-correct wants to substitute "Fireworks" for "Fiberworks" which is appropriate when you look at the intense, luminous colors of the yarn.
