and the knitting goes on

I have too many things on the needles. that's all there is to it.

1. I started Ene's Scarf from Scarf Style on WWKIP day - i'm using some laceweight that I dyed up myself in peacock blue/lavender/old rose. My intention was that it be peacock colors. It isn't. It is, however, more like stained glass colors, and I like it. I just finished chart 1 last night.

2. I'm in the Goddess Knits Anniversary Mystery Shawl KAL - clue 2 came out Saturday, I finished the clue Saturday. I'm using Malabrigo laceweight in a color they call saphire-garnet, which is really purple and green. i'm loving it.

3. I'm in another mystery shawl KAL, called Casablanca - clue 1 came out Friday, I finished the clue Friday. That one's getting knitted up in Knit Picks Shimmer lace yarn, in a color called Sherry - it's really pretty.

4. And as if that wasn't enough, I agreed to test-knit a sweater for some friends... in light fingering yarn. right now, i'm on rows that are 250 stitches from end to end, and the rows just feel endless. On the other hand, as I go from one colorway blending into the next one, the colors are coming out really interesting (and pretty).

it's going to be a week of lots of knitting, with nothing getting finished. Not too sure how I feel about that. I like finishing things.
