fickle? who me?

So I'm fickle. So what? Variety is the spice of life, right? This is a representation of the current projects I have on the go right now. I say current, because this pile does not even come close to all the UFO's I have hanging around, these are just the ones that get attention at the moment. Starting with the big one on the bottom - the olive green, rayon and cotton "make it up as I go" cardigan. I'm still in love with this, and after a quick tryst with the Mohair cardigan, I'm back knitting on this. Mostly stockinette (there are columns of garter stitch in there that I'm hoping to morph into a great bottom treatment when I get there. Wish me luck...), so it's great mindless TV knitting.

Starting at the top, a quick charity hat using up the lovely blue and brown yarn recovered from my Romulan jacket fiasco. Someone will love it.

Then there's a blue cotton sock for my husband. He saw my cotton socks and the ones I made for my Mom, and asked for a pair of his own. He loves the wool, but there are days that demand cotton, he says. Since I like having a sock on the go, this is the go-to one.

The lovely cream coloured blob there is an ancient Fiddlesticks lace scarf - I started this at least two years ago, and it got buried. I recently unearthed it, and when I need a challenge or something to occupy my mind so I won't kill anyone (cough*family members*cough), this is it.

Then, because I can't seem to put the crochet down, another bag, this time using 100% hemp in a beautiful green. May be a keeper, may be a gift.

I just realized that I'm missing the never ending Montego Bay scarf from this pile - it's still around, gets looked at every now and then, but the ball still refuses to shrink.

There's also a couple of other socks around somewhere - I think I need to go through some bags and baskets to find things. Who knows? I may find another treasure like the Fiddlesticks scarf.

Wow, that's a lot to have on the go. Not too bad when they actually get finished though. My problem is finishing stuff.

You have plenty of varity, so you won't be bored. And killing family members is frowned on, so have more of those knitting projects on hand.

Fun to see projects on the go!

I've spent the past few months knitting just half of several projects! This week I've finally started finishing them up. I feel you!

Fickle? Maybe, but certainly ambitious. BTW - Love the cowl

Glad to see it's not just me with a pile of wips....
