So I cast on Thursday and have got about 3 feet done. I find ribbon yarn to be a bit tricky and slow to work with, but so far I am pleased with the results. It took me a few inches to get the hang of it, but I think I've got it now. The birthday is Thursday, and it should definitely be done by then.
Meanwhile, multiple projects are languishing:
- my Year of the Sweater KAL sweater for me - Stitch 'n Bitch To Dye For pattern. I finished the back but then got absorbed in the Anniversary Sweater and haven't done a thing since January 16.
- the Anniversary Sweater - did one underarm kitchener stitch seam, ended up with holes on either end. Still need to fix that, do the other underarm, and weave in multiple ends. Maybe I'll finish it while it's still cool enough to wear a sweater....
- my Anthropologie-inspired capelet - I'm maybe halfway done. I want to finish this in time for Easter, to wear with a dress I'm planning on sewing myself (yeah, when am I going to do that?)
- a baby blanket that was going to be for a baby who is now 4 months old and will probably be a toddler before I finish. It's a handwashable and I've decided I'm the only person I know who would willingly handwash a baby blanket, so I'm just going to keep it for one of my boys.
