Getting Sidetracked

Getting sidetracked is an easy thing to do.

There are so many yarns and ideas. Sometimes you just cannot HELP YOURSELF!

My girlfriend, Sharon, texted me yesterday: “Sidetracked again. Learning to knit booties with Agnes.” My response was: “Too Funny!” But, what I should have texted was: “Not surprised, how many projects are on your needles?”

So, knitter’s out there…….How many projects are on YOUR needles?

This last year around this time I made it a goal to not get sidetracked……

HA! I have been fairly good………I have a skirt to go with my Malibu Morning Shawl – it has been on the needles for a bit over a year. Goal: to finish this summer. A linen head band and “Hippy Bag”. Goal: to finish this summer. I have a leftover yarn sweater with just the sleeves to finish. Goal: to finish before winter hits. I have a felted travel bag started. Goal: someday. I have a scarf. Goal: find yarn for a sweater to go with it. I have socks – but then I try to always have socks on needles for traveling. The second Chocolate Lattice Fingerless Glove. Goal: Soon. Oh, and I almost forgot the sweater for my daughter – I am ripping it out to start over – does that one count?

And finally, Creme Brulee. But, this is what I am madly working on theses days…………..

I constantly have to stop myself from casting on something new unless it is for a submission or accepted project.

And finally about the other things that keep me sidetracked from knitting…..the list is long. But, these are 2 of my favorites:
