I'll show that sweater who's boss...

That Green sweater can just go ahead and sit there until the remaining yarn decides to show it's face. (And yes, I know the benefits of keeping all project yarn together in one place. But this time, I didn't. Sue me.)

Not only CAN I knit other things, I have been.

I've started the Elizabeth Zimmerman Green, now Red Sweater:
And that pink/brown super soft Punta Yarns Merisoft merino just called my name, so I started a triangular scarf. It's loosely based on a little thing I saw over at Brooklyn Tweed - Jared Flood made a similar little triangular thing. It's easy, it's mindless, and it's so soft.

I think it will be perfect for my Mom.

And yes, I have left the green sweater out in full view. It can suffer, seeing me knit everything else, and knowing it will not get finished until the remaining yarn shows up.

I have never heard this idea about keeping all the yarn together! Who wants to haul a load of yarn everywhere? I never look for things I can't find - unless they belong to my husband, he can't stand it when things go missing but I just do as you say and generally wait. Eventually things either show up or I forget or stop caring. Its a good system that has never failed me yet!

Hee Hee. Is your Elizabeth Zimmermann Green Sweater, actually the Red Green Sweater?

Sure, blame the victim.

Way to show the sweater, knit other things.
