a certain lack of commitment


this sock has languished on the needles for weeks now ... all that's left is the toe. why haven't i finished the sock? i don't know.


and here's flicca with an almost completed back, and a finished sleeve that i'm uncommitted to, because i'm thinking the sleeve might need to be ripped back and made a bit shorter ....

i am knitting flicca with a substitute yarn ... plymouth's encore chunky, and the sleeve used up one ball + part of a second, and the back will use up 3 balls + part of a 4th. not bad.

i'm really enjoying knitting this sweater coat. i look forward to finishing it and being able to wear it while it's still winter.


though i finished the gloves days ago, i finally took a picture of them as a pair. of course, it has me thinking about which stash yarn might end up as gloves as well ....

Yeah, it's TIME to finish up those socks! The colors are so beautiful, and won't it be nice to have a new pair of wooly socks to wear while its still cold? (For future glove projects, how about a pair in Trekking?)

Finish that sock! :)

I love the Flicca pattern. That is a whooole lotta knitting you've gotten done.

Gloves are adorable! My cold, cold hands want to wear them.

Love your gloves! I just finished the thumb and have started the index finger on my very first glove! I feel like I did when I could finally ride a bike without Dad holding the back. I thinking of wonderful new uses for stash yarn and leftover yarn too.

look at that--TWO gloves! i am amazed at your knitting progress since sunday and HORRIBLY jealous of the amount of time you have to devote to knitting. i will be lucky to finish one of my little gauntlets before i see you again!

I love the gloves! I'm planning on making a pair for myself with the same pattern you used (that Ann Budd book). A girl in Michigan needs alot of gloves for cold winters like ours.

I'll bet those socks are finished now. I saw them almost finished twice last night!
The I-cord gloves you mentioned look great. I found the blog, and have added it to my favorites.

Wow, you're really moving fast on flicca!
Those gloves are really great, look so professional, and the color is lovely!

I love, love, love the gloves. I won't even pretend I'm ready to try them after my sock fiasco. But I AM going to try socks again.
