No pictures in this post, unfortunately, and that's because I can't seem to finish anything.
So I decided I wouldn't participate in the World Cup Knitting challenge thing. Nope.
I'm also resisting the urge to cast on for this top.
Or for Tubey. Or for this cool cabled cardigan that I saw on Crafsters a while ago and that I have the pattern for (it's from an old Vogue Knitting magazine). I also won't start an alphabet blanket, felted clogs for my boyfriend, Madli's Shawl (using the cashmere I bought on Ebay) or a Clapotis.
This summer, I am finishing stuff. From now on and until these projects are finished, I can only work on three things:
-Mariah. This sweater should have been done a long long time ago (if only I didn't decide to start over the sleeves, we wouldn't be having this discussion). I know I can finish it before fall comes back and I'll be happy to have a new sweater when it gets colder.
-The Kiri shawl (pattern in pdf format here). I'm loving working on this so I don't doubt I'll finish it soon. I have almost 7 repeats of the pattern done so far and I'm planning on doing 10-12 of them.
-Socks. The plain red socks that I started while I was in Europe.
The only exception to my "I'm not starting a new project before I finish these" rule is that I will be able to start a new pair of socks when I finish the red ones. That's only because I need a portable and easy project that I can work on during the knitting meetups.
Hopefully I'll be able to stick to this commitment and you guys will have FO pics to see soon :)
