All knitting, all spinning, all the time

All knitting, all spinning, all the time

I seem to be suffering from a bout of startitis.  Normally I have two, three or sometimes even four projects on the go so I can chop & change between projects as the mood takes me.  A travelling sock, a blanket I started nearly two years ago & maybe a cardigan or shawl.

I had a bit of a rude shock this week when I had to do the obligatory tidy-up for a routine rental inspection.  Let's get the lounge chair-side projects tidied up so we don't freak out the real estate person too badly ... lol!!

Can you guess how many projects were hiding in there?  Not four.  Not six.  Try doubling it.  That's right - TWELVE!!  Oh my goodness!  What happened?!

This new addiction hasn't helped:

Mitred Crosses.  Spotty has a new yummy yarn which is 25% silk 75% wool with scrummy long colour changes like Noro.  I'm bordering it with some purple Bendi 8ply & I think I'm in love.  It's ALL garter stitch which I thought would be brain meltingly boring, but I'm hooked.  I should be finishing off some of my UFO's (including a baby cardi that I really want done in the next couple of weeks) but I'm utterly helpless to the charms of the Mitred Crosses.  I'm seriously considering buying some more so I can make another blanket in a different colourway.  (Just what I need on the approach to what is promised to be a pretty revoltingly hot & sticky summer - a third blanket project!)

Just one more square ...
