My knittin love is fickle...

I have been way too unfocused lately to finishe anything - but that doesn't mean I haven't had time to start anything new - no-siree-bob.

I have been a kniting fool lately - with all kinds of things on the needles at once. And I am working on all of them I swear! But I can't seem to focus on any one thing lately!

Here's what I should be working on:



My Central Park Hoodie is slowly coming together. The back, the left front panel and half of the right front panel are done. But I seem to have stalled out.... I need to get going before it gets too warm to wear it!

In the last month or so - I have also been working on a top down raglan sweater (in blues for Project Spectrum) some Anemoi mittens (also in Blue!) two different pairs of socks, the Tuscany Shawl:

(which I am going to rip - because I don't like the way it's coming out...)

and way too many sewing projects!
I made these up last weekend...





Not to mention that I keep seeing new things I want to make - practically daily. I just bought Simply Knitting magazine:



It came with a prize too - a magnetic needle case with needles and pins included. I love british mags for including these little things - it's like the toy suprise in cereal - except for grown ups!! But anyway - inside it has patterns for the cutest little barn yard animals!



I need to make them! I showed it to my gals at knit nite and Coleen needed to make them too - go look at her cute cow!



Isn't it adorable!

Wow, a matching needle case too! I hope you finish your Central Park Hoodie soon, because I think it's going to be beautiful.

My, my, my....you HAVE been busy! Everything looks absolutely gorgeous....you're tempting me to make the Central Park Hoodie!

Loved your friend's cow! It's adorable - have you made any of the animals yet? (I have to find my copy of the magazine...somehow, I've misplaced it!)

Yeah go knitting ADD!
I think you eventually get more stuff done that way...that is what I tell myself anyway. And really, it was 70-ish degrees today, much too warm for a heavy wool sweater.

I've started and un-started about 65896 different projects this week. I think it's the weather's fault. If the universe can't decide what to do, how could I be expected to?

I really need that sheep.

I'd be fickle too. Those yarns are so pretty!
