I can't get no Satisfaction ......

All I want to do is finish three projects. 1. An afghan 2. Half Pi Shawl and 3. Floral Washcloth

I started sewing the strips of the afghan together. Not as easy as it looks. I must have ripped my sewing out several times for each strip. Finally got to the last strip and what do my eyes see? A dropped stitch. Can you believe I dropped a stitch! Of course it wasn't at the end of the strip. It was at the beginning. So, after some consideration and disgust, I have decided to reknit the strip. Fortunately, I have another ball of yarn, plus leftover yarn from the other strips and if I need to, I can rip apart the bad strip (I just don't feel like ripping it apart unless I need the yarn). So maybe I can finish it up in a week or so.

I am working on completing the half pi shawl. Maybe if I am lucky, I will get it done this weekend. I have about 11 rows to go. Will I survive? I hope so.

I do plan on working on the floral washcloth this weekend too.

I am chopping at the bit to start a new project, but just refuse until I finish something. If I get the half pi shawl done, I may cast on a scarf or dishcloth.

After I finish these three projects though I still have 8 more projects to go.

I am dreaming of Handmaiden sea silk, lornas laces, koigu, and brown sheep wool (Possibly Manos del Uraguay too). I have been eyeing the Knit Pick needles and think I will succumb to buying them as well as the knitting bags they now have.

Too much to knit, so little time.
