Oh, hello there. Sorry I haven’t been around as much with the updates – school is running me ragged. Less than 3 weeks to go, and I’ll be free (except for anthropology)!

I feel like I’ve just been spinning my wheels with my projects, because I’m working on so many different things that nothing is getting done. Evidence:

Cozy. Still a looooong way to go, and it’s getting too big to take to SnB (almost).

The Monk’s Travel Satchel – I’m almost done the strap! I’m at 62″, and to account for shrinkage I’m aiming for 80″. This one goes pretty quickly during lectures, but again, getting kind of freaking large.

No stripes go round. Boring, boring. I haven’t worked on it in ages. The body’s about half done.

Sideways spencer. I love knitting this one, and it goes so fast because of the patterning. Probably because of that, I haven’t been working on it very much – I’m at the point where you divide for the left front and back. I’ve loosened up my gauge a little while is helping with the wonky row gauge (but I’m making the 40″ size, so if it turns out a bit small it’ll still be ok).

The grey socks. One down, one to go! I did a star toe on the first sock. We’ll see if he thinks it’s comfortable. If not, well, I don’t know.

A toe-up sock for my toe-up socks class. I need to get to the heel this week so I can demonstrate the heel! I wish I was using smaller needles, but I don’t want to buy any. Oh well. Demo sock.

The newest WIP – grumperina’s tivoli tee, in pink cotton-ease. I’m just past the armholes, and it does look like it’s going to fit, more or less – I might need to do a crochet border or something around the neck.

And then there’s the secret gift project, which is coming along. Less than half done, but there’s still time. Plus when I work on it, it goes quickly.

So there you have it! Everything laid out. I haven’t really been spinning because I want my wheel – I’ve decided now that I want the Lendrum. I emailed Gemini Fibres to see if they had it in stock so I could go pick one up – they’re expecting a shipment “any day”. I hope that day is before Thursday, because I’ve got very limited time in which to go there, due to school, parents, etc.

I’ve really got to get some projects done before starting anything new. WIP challenge, if you will.
