I have finished several things and started more. Always too much on the needles.

Simple Yet Effective

I finished the Simple Yet Effective Shawl.  I saw SouleMama doing it and it sent me straight to my stash. I think it is the first thing that I have ever went “straight to the stash” for and actually cast on and off with any persistence.

Habitat 1

I also finished Habitat by Jared Flood of Brooklyntweed.  Nothing inspires me to knit quite like the designs of Mr. Flood.  Almost immediately I cast on a second hat and am toying with the idea of the accompanying fingerless mitts called Humanity by another Jared-lover.  (as a side, E was all too happy to model the hat…as long as she could read while she did it…)

I finished a hat for a friend at church who has just finished chemo (no photo, it was on and off the needles in a couple of days), and am also finishing a vest I cast on long (long, long, long, long) ago. I have started a shrug for E that I am totally winging because I cannot find the book I knit the first one out of.

And that doesn’t even begin to cover the things that are older or in the cue…a knitter’s work is never done!
