please HELP me...
get through all my current projects.
if I add to this list before I DELETE from this list, please come to my place for coffee and an intervention.

cinnamon coloured merino long sleeved crew neck sweater. (nearly done, just have to shape the cap of both sleeves, and stitch them in.)

A sweater based on a Degas painting. Halfway up the front. got seven colours going at the moment.

a "paper chain" scarf. need to use up this yarn, so what the heck, start a scarf.

gloves in a glorious shade of green, in a lace weight mohair yarn. LOVE the colour. one is halfway done.

sort of sagey-green slightly nubbly worsted weight grandpa sweater, with a pocket on the left breast and button placket part-way down.
small needles, many stitches because I'm knitting in size FAT at the moment. ( i put on weight with retirement, sigh).

mohair vest with bunnies along the bottom, just cuz I had the wool and needed to use it up.

an intarsia sweater in a sort of tourquoise blue, with sail boats in off white. almost done, but got bored. (a year ago.) (oh dear.)

oh, and a plain white cotton wash cloth, again just to use it up, but I'm adding a fun leaf edging to it. almost done. If I stop typing here, I could finish it today. DONE!!!!!

I think thats it for the knitting.

I refuse to discuss the needlepoint, or the sewing. Its hidden in the back room, and NO, there will not be a tour.

just did a count. That's only EIGHT projects!!!

For the record, this week I finished a skirt, a big bulky sweater with a zipper, and two cats.
I feel better, now.

An intervention here would turn into talking someone out of not buying yarn and not starting another project. Sounds fun, group rate should definitely apply.

I spa clothed some dishes too, and kitchen surfaces. I think the stovetop appreciated it more than the dishes or the countertop.

good morning.
I'm still figuring out how to post a pic.
('i am LUDDITE!) will learn.

today, I finish the cinnamon sleeves.

Its like a small victory whenever something comes off the needles, and onto the body, isn't it. good feeling.lj
