There are a few downsides to this sudden return of knitting energy.  I want to start all kinds of new projects!  I really should finish a few first. :)  Part of the impetus for this has been trying to decide on what knitting to take for the trip to Seattle. 

I ripped out my current sock in progress, because I'd made the leg too long, resulting in not enough yarn for the foot.  I could just take the other ball of that yarn and start over.  I've brought the book to work to photocopy the pattern. 

I'm not taking Lina's blanket, because it is large/bulky.  That shouldn't take too much longer to finish, though. 

If I were virtuous, I would take the Christmas stocking I promised to make for my sister-in-law.  Heck, I need to make one for that brand-new brother-in-law I picked up this past weekend. Not too bulky, very simple knitting (essentially, make a giant sock).  Must remember to bring in the old pattern to scan next week.  Mom promised to make the crocheted snowmen required.  I'll have to remind her that the yarn is at her house. At least that way, if she doesn't get the crochet done, it's not my fault the stockings aren't ready!  I also need to check and see where the color balance is at on the mantel.  The girls' stockings were both green, because that balanced things.  I'm not sure where we're at now.  

I'm currently frustrated with my lace stole.  I was stupid and relied on the magnets, which, of course, slipped in my bag.  Now I have to figure out where I am and why I'm off by a stitch. Plus, it's a large chart and not easily transportable. Thus, it's not going with to Seattle. Fortunately, I've been listening to the Knit Picks podcast, and I got some good ideas to figure out how to do that.

I'm itching to do something with the beautiful periwinkle laceweight LT brought me from Madrona last year.  The only problem is that we misplaced the ball band and I have no idea how much I have.  I think this means I'm doing a triangle from the point up, so I just quit when I run out of yarn!  I'm thinking if I decide I want an edging, I could do it a contrasting color, but I'm not sure if that will look well.  Decisions, Decisions.  I'm currently trying hard to resist taking the laceweight with me on the trip.  I love knitting laceweight and lace, and it's so lovely and compact!

You have north of a mile of the laceweight. We did the conversion in our heads while winding it.
