One Thing at a Time

My recent attempts to keep myself to one project at a time seem to be paying off, as I'm actually finishing things rather than starting, starting, starting and not so frequently finishing. With the motivation of the reward of casting on something new looming ahead, it's much easier for me to keep the sticks moving.

I have two small projects to add to the "done" list, although only photos of one right now.

New socks that I've named "Tahoe Socks" (don't ask me why Tahoe ... ). These are knit with my FF Tight Twist Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn. The colorway is one of the ones exclusive to my current sock club. The pattern is available in my shop.

The other project I finished was a very simple, quick-knit hat made with the leftover yarn from the sweater I recently completed. It's such a simple little bit of nothing knitting that it's not really worthy of a picture, but if I remember I'll take one anyone to show you next time I post.

My next project in this serial-knitting-monogamy fest will be a pair of fingerless mitts. I made quite a few pair last year, but mostly for gifts. The ones I made for myself I wear all the time and so I think a second pair for me is in order. I'm noodling on plans for another sweater, but keep changing my plans so I'll wait a bit on that until I know for sure what I want to do.

That's about all that's going on here, other than the usual dyeing frenzy. Dyeing is surprisingly physical work and leaves me pretty tired at the end of the day. Good thing I have my protector to ensure nothing disturbs me if I try to catch a little catnap.

Hope everyone is having a great week!
