I Just Can't Get Started

Monkey Sock in Cherry Tree Hill yarn

Well, it's been quite a few weeks between posts. Since then, I finished one Monkey sock and started the second. Then, I came down with Second Sock Syndrome and the sock is still on the needles. Pics to come, as they are, of course, on another computer.

In between all that, I started a baby sweater for a friend using the Peapod Baby Sweater pattern in orange Cotton Cashmere (Debbie Bliss). However, I've had problems focusing on the pattern (it's an unusual ribbing and I can't seem to get it right). I think I should just do a test swatch instead of trying to do the whole thing at once and screwing it up!

Then, I thought, maybe I need to opt for a simpler sweater. So, I started knitting the Mason Dixon Baby Kimono in Katia Sonrisa, shown below.

Only the gauge was too small. So, I ripped it out and thought that I'll try it on bigger needles. Have I done that yet? No.

Oh, right. I forgot that I also knit a Mason Dixon mitred square in Cotton Classic to see what it would look like. Here's my first square:

Then, I knitted a swatch of Debbie Bliss Cathay because I've been planning to knit Tahoe from Knitty. I knitted the swatch this weekend. Have I measured it? No. I'll get around to that. Maybe I can then find something to distract me from the baby sweater to distract me from finishing the socks.

And this is how nothing (or few things) get accomplished!
