Ta da!

This bowl of ornaments were knit for my daugher over Thanksgiving. I have more of those to make as gifts too but I can do those pretty quickly.

But, the big TA DA... It is done! I finished my Mystery Stole and I love it. I will definately keep my eye out for other fun projects like that one. Unfortunately I have no picture to post at the moment but I will soon.

I was recently asked what I was going to knit next. Such a funny question, if one knows me very well. I always have mutliple projects on needles. I have spent the last 2 days organizing and sorting my knitting library, yarn, needles and supplies. And, TA DA.... in so doing I have found multiple projects waiting to be completed and become Christmas presents. I have already finished 3. Yes, it is said to be that much of an ADHD knitter but so be it.

Back to work. I actually brought home work this weekend and need to get that done too.

Thursday knit nite

I have just returned from Starbucks. There are a group of us that meet there to knit on Thursday evenings occasionally. Unfortunately, I don't know what I was thinking tonight when I packed my bag. I took a complicated lace project. So I knit a few rows and realized that meant I wasn't able to join the conversation as much. I know better than that and usually take something much less complicated.

BUT... I want to finish this project - Mystery Stole 4. I am on the final chart and want to finish it and block it so I can wear it to a party on Saturday. So what am I doing here blogging? I don't know either.

My son says I am a yarn pusher. I do think everyone would be happier if they knit. I am trying to get others at work to knit too. I find such relaxation in the process. It is always funny how strangers will start a conversation with me if I am knitting, more so than if I am not.

Back to the sticks I go! I am determined to finish the knitting tonight so I can do the join and blocking tomorrow.
