I don't know about you, Gentle Knitter, but I find I cannot leave the house without multiple projects in hand.
For a junket around town running errands, I can be cavalier and pack just a sock, or the current portion of a sweater (gotta love those portable portions of sweaters, right, Karen Jo?).
But any trip of ANY length that requires leaving the city limits?
Count 'em. Three.
And for those non-knitters in the audience, that doesn't mean three things with one skein each attached. Noooo... I'm talkin' three-whole-sweaters-and-all-of-their-yarn-no-matter-how-fine-it-is-and-how-many-hours-it-would-take-to-knit-it-all-up kinda three projects.
It could be a sock project (one sock finished, or both left to go) plus the rest of a sweater, plus one sweater barely started... or three whole sweaters, barely begun. So on the knitting extravaganza weekend that will be the Sisterhood Junket to Sleeping Lady this weekend?
• Stockinette sleeves with corrugated-rib cuffs to finish my oldest UFO.
• Front neckline and both sleeves of a horribly complicated Aran sweater that took me three weeks to knit the back and part of the front.
• The remaining 2/3rds of a sport-weight stockinette sweater on size 3 needles for a class I'm teaching.
• And, of course, the token New Project, the thing I shouldn't even be thinking about starting untll I've finished one of the earlier 3 things... which is probably the Thing I Will Finish This Weekend Because It is The Thing I Shouldn't Be Knitting.... A Christmas present for someone who reads this blog and therefore, unpostable. (Sigh.)
Taking bets in the comments for how many skeins I am actually able to knit up this weekend and when or if I actually manage to FINISH something on this weekend of non-stop knitting fun.
Wish me luck.
