I have a whole bunch of "I want to start it now" projects in the stash, but have some little things I need to knit first before I get to choose. I want to get more done on my Entrelac Coat--which means figuring out where I left off and how to do Entrelac again.
I also have a project on the go for a book that will be published in late 2004--that's on the needles now and it's coming along well. The pattern itself is not challenging, but it is stretching my abilities with colour selection which is making it a fun knit. I think that's all I'll reveal for now.
And, Mom's birthday is in January so I need to get going on her Angora mitts. I want to start them (I wound the skeins yesterday and it's amazing--Lorna's Laces Angel in Aslan), but we're off to her place tonight and I can't bring them along. So, my easy travel project is a beanie-type hat for me, in Silk Garden, colour 84, given to me by Katherine in a little gift exchange. It's my first time with Silk Garden and I can see much much more of it in my future.
Craig's scarf is not-to-be. The yarn is just not working for either of us. He wants something finer gauged, and I can't get a pattern I like to work with this stuff. It will make a nice headband and mitten set for someone, someday. I think this is one of those times, when all else fails, to choose Koigu. If we can agree on a colour (likely a solid since he thinks the Painter's Palette is all girlie stuff) I would have no problem making him a Koigu scarf, though I might use Kersti since it's not so fine. Mmmm Koigu.
And thanks to everyone for their lovely compliments on my Must-Have Cardigan. The buttons are clay-looking (plastic!) with some little speckles of taupe and grey on them--nice and subtle--there are some new photos with all the details in my Gallery. If you want to make one, join the knit along that Kate is coordinating.
No more posts for me for a couple of days. Happy New Year to everyone. May it bring happiness, health, prosperity, and plenty of yarn (and a completed PhD for me!).
