Too many neat projects to knit and not enough time.

I have been knitting, but I keep coming up with more projects to knit.

I finished the first Zig Zag sock.  I am using Fleece Artist basic merino sock yarn in the color Rainforest with a size 1 needle.

I am enjoying the pattern and think that I have knitted another sock in a similar pattern.

I’m almost finished with the Antarktis scarf and want to make another one using Shalimar Breathless in the color Scarab for someone else.  I would also like to make another one for myself.

Then I want to cast on for the Adamis cowl suing Madelinetosh vintage in grey garden.  I have a leftover skein of this from the Restoration cowl and another full skein of it.  That should be enough.

I still have the Flutterby baby blanket, hitchhiker, and Gale sweater on the needles.  It seems as if I can only handle two projects at a time.  I must get knitting!

Finishing–Thank goodness

I have been knitting quite a bit, but I finally finished two projects.

The Restoration Cowl is complete.  I used Madelinetosh vintage in grey garden with a size 7 needle.  I enjoyed knitting this project.

I also complete the Dark side of the Moon socks by Must Stash Yarn.  I used a size 1 needle (but it was a 2.5mm instead of a 2.25mm).  The sock is a little bigger on me, but fits okay.  I love the socks.

I then started another sock called Zig Zag socks.  I am using Fleece Artist Basic merino yarn in the color Rainforest with a size 1 needle (2.25mm).  Of course, I love the color.  This yarn has been in my stash for a long time.

I also cast on for another shawl called Antarktis.  I am using a size 5 needle with Araucania Italia Multy yarn in the color 1001.  I think this will be a great shawl.

I got my next skein of sock yarn from Must stash yarn in her basic sock.  The color is Wish you were here.  This is another self striping yarn.  I love the colors.

I have another cowl that I want to make and hopefully will cast on for that project soon.
