#22. Catching Up

I started a bunch of knitting projects due to taking classes in the spring.  This resulted in some stress this summer as I had all these partial projects.  I was feeling out of control.  So I decided no new classes until I got some completed.  I finished three pairs of socks, one pair of footies, and a sweater for my daughter.  I also had fun making project bags out of cute fabrics that I picked up at Silk Road Textiles summer anniversary sale.  I started and finished a shawl with yarn I gotten back in April and restarted a scarf that I was unhappy with how it was knitting up.

The result of all this knitting is that I feel more back in control.  I still have a few uncompleted projects but I’m not as stressed over these.  The restarted scarf doesn’t really have a completion date and is just something to knit when I need to take a break with some easy knitting.  I’m working on a pair of socks for me so that I can learn the Fish Lips Kiss heel so again it doesn’t really have a completion date.  Since it’s a watermelon pattern, they don’t really need to be finished till next spring.  I’ve also started another pair of footies for me but these knit up fast and again don’t have to be done anytime soon.

So I’m back in class again.  The shell seeker sweater class started while I was on vacation but I hope to get some guage help today and then start knitting.  I know sock classes will start up again in January when Colleen gets back in town.  It’s only 12 weeks until Christmas and I have a bunch of projects I’d like to get done.  Oops, I’m starting to get stressed again.  Better get back to knitting.
