The cure for “Startitis”….
Is “finishitis” ‘git-er-done’ ‘just do it’, and all that; completion. So here’s what’s on the needles and what’s now done:
1) SWS socks #1 - (I plan on making a second pair in another colorway when these are done). Easy peasy basic sock with fancy-shmancey rib stitch (okay K2, p1, k1, p1) cuff and foot
2) Mitered T (Knitter’s Spring 2007) – swatched and blocking
3) Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Snail Hat (another PADS hat) (no pic as nothing much to show yet)
76-Stitch Hat #2
(non-knitting) Tote/purse This was the purse I mentioned in a previous post that I forgot to cut handles for. Turns out, I also forgot that if I was going to put a zipper in, then the said zipper needed to be the right size. So, forgoing a trip to the fabric store, It is now more totelike than pursey, but I like the way it came out and it's a bit classier than most of my totes. Medium size; Faux suede; fully lined; interior pockets. What's not to love?
On a sadder note, my DD #1 had a sad event this weekend when her sweet kitty Hanna died. ** Hugs ** Please send good and cheerful thoughts to her.
