These two bins sit at the end of the couch. I bought them to use as a table and it doubled for knitting storage. I keep tape measures and other notions in them. As time has gone by they have collected a few projects as well.
These bins have become the place where projects go to wait. They are all waiting for different things. There is a sock in there I cast on for without doing gauge first, if I were to finish it as it lies now I could send it to my favorite basketball star.
There is a little lace number that just seems to take to much brain power for me to knit, counting to 30 seems to be beyond me whenever I pick it up to work on it. Some pretty cascade 220 that is destined to be felted clogs someday. There are two leftover sock balls that I really want to turn into kid socks. A pair of fingerless gloves that only needs two ends sewn in to be complete and wearable.
And these: Remember the thrummed mittens? I only knit one and then spring came along and warm mittens were just not the thing I wanted to work on. They take up a lot of room in purgatory, the fleece, the yarn and the lonely completed mitten. I have decided to chip away a bit on these projects. I am starting with the mitten as it takes up the most room and I have been feeling a bit weighed down by it every time I open the bin. The first mitten only took a week to knit. The second, an entire year. I started it today and I plan to work on it when I need sweater breaks.
I am so pleased with this spinning. This is most of the roving that I dyed with the Kool-Aid. I have been thinking of entering this in the little agricultural fair that comes the Loops in the spring. There is a hand dyed hand spun category this might do well in. It's worth a shot just for fun.
I have about 20 rows and then I am done with the bottom of my sweater. I think the upper half will move along pretty quickly.
