in need of something new

I am ready for a new project but I know I shouldn't start anything new. I have a few things on the needles right now. Not one close to being finished. The sotsii stole is, of course, still in progress. I am working on a pair of socks for my dad and that Log Cabin blanket is still not finished. You know the one. The one that was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my in laws. I pulled it out of its bag the other day and worked a few rows. Garter, garter, and more garter is just do boring.

Thuja (wip)

I am making my dad this pair of Thuja's.
(He has a small foot. They will fit. They are big on me. Really.)

I only work on them a bit here and there. It's my traveling project. Always in my bag, not really ever worked on at home. I am past the gusset on the first sock. Yay. Should be smooth sailing on the foot for awhile. Dad's birthday is at the end of March. I have some time.

So, I have a couple patterns that I am looking at to start. A baby bolero from One Skein for a friend who is due in May. Also, this has caught my eye. So cute.
Tangled Yoke. I have been wanting to make this for awhile but couldn't bring myself to buy the yarn. Well, I bought some yarn from someone on Ravelry. 8 skeins of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in a really pretty brown. I will either use it for the Tangled Yoke or for Patti.

Very hard decision to make.


  1. Love the color of the socks! I may change patterns yet for Hubby's new socks!

  2. I get bored with garter stitch too although sometimes there's nothing better than "mindless" knitting.

    The socks look sooo cozy. Oooh you're using the dreaded magic loop. Why am I so afraid

  3. Ooo! we could have matching Pattis once we get around to finishing some of our current

  4. I really like that yarn! Nice colour, nice texture, just nice!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
