Knitting Away

I organized my stash and that felt great and now I am knitting from it. I love making little mindless things that I can do while the kids play. I have made quite a few washclothes lately and I adore them. I just pick a stitch pattern and go. I can make one in an hour or so. I think I've also memorized the Calorimetry pattern, I've made a few and have some more to make. People love them and they are easy. A great combination!

I finally finished the first Knuck for my DH, now I have to start the second one. That is my last christmas obligation (I know it is the end of February...)

My big WIP is the Elfin Lace shawl that I am doing as a KAL with some friends from my knitting group. I am so far behind!!! One person (Robin) has finished the main part and has picked up the stitches on one side for the edging! I am on repeat 5 of 28 (and yes each repeat gets longer...) I am blaming my kids! Robin's son is away at college so she can knit complicated patterns at home every evening, while I have a 4 yr old and 2 yr old to play with. That is my story and I'm sticking to it! :)

it's not nice to tell us about all this without pictures :)

oh--my sock pattern is undulating rib from interweave's new book and i'm starting to really like it (when i'm not swearing at it, that is)
