That is right. I am again affected by the Startitis. By the way, if there is a cure – please do not tell me! I am starting projects. Way more than it is reasonable. Especially now, that my so called “free time” is a mere memory. You would think that now, that I am wandering through the house bleary-eyed, why would I want to start a bunch of new things? There is really no reasonable explanation. But I am compelled to do this. If I do not, they (the projects) just keep buzzing in my mind, saying “Knit Me!”. Of course, as soon as I started something, I get another brilliant idea, and off I go. Putting aside the started project. Of course, most of the things I am making are for the baby, but there is a hat for DD #3, (she has never met a hat she did not like). Then, there is a vest for DS #1. He asked for it as his present for his Bar Mitzvah. And talking about his Bar Mitzvah, I want something nice and pretty for myself, so there are a few shawl possibilities I am playing with. And yes, all this yarn is currently resides on and around my bed.
But some things do get finished . I have finished my Simply Stretchy Socks, they are knit in Rachel from PennyRose Yarns (that is Yarnarian). I love the yarn the colors are beautiful and it is really soft. A true treat for my feet.
So I was without socks in progress for almost 4 days. That is a lot. Then, after DH dared to ask if I really need another pair I started socks for him. As a “thank you for putting up with me” present. I do not know yet if I am going to come up with another new “something”, or just make my old pattern. But I started them anyway.
There are so many ideas, so many projects and “the call of the yarn” is irresistible.
