New start

So I have been contemplating the vastness of my mostly finished objects and it leaves me wondering why the hell I stop when I am about 90% done....and I deal with my wonderment by starting a new project. My new goal is to at least document the specs so when I try tho finish this up I will at least have a reference point for when I quit. So in the interest of documentation...this is knitty sunday swing sock pattern done in knit picks stroll tonal in Queen Anne's lace.

Lenore sock part 3

So I decided to go through and finish some ufos and had success with one pair of reggia socks for my son. Less progress with the lenore sock (last posted on november 3, 2007). I can't find the freaking pattern and I don't think I can bring myself to rebuy it. Grrr..maybe I can fake it?

Ends woven in, soaked and blocking. Now the big question is what to knit next. I have many baby gifts to make and a fair number of unfinished objects but there are also some newthings I am interested in. maybe I need to sleep on it. Some of the wonkieness seems to have blocked out but will see how it looks on.

Frustrated much?

Oh well turns out cutting the steeks was the easy part. Picking up the stitches and doing the ribbing has been a colossal pain in the butt. Adding to my already deficient counting skills, the color changes plus the screaming children have made today a virtual tink fest. And this baby better have some magic in the blocking cause there are some seriously wonky bits.

Can we make this easy

Well its been a long time. Work, family and live interfered with knitting among blogging but now I can do this from my phone! Pretty cool. So I will try to catch up by posting pictures of recent knitting from my sd card. Starting with current project which is the ivy league vest done in knit picks pallette yarn.
