Oooohh, Shiny!

One of the things I don't like about Ravelry--it encourages startitis. I read about some fun project and want to start it now. I read about some yarn on sale and click, click, click--my new yarn is on the way.

I have, however, been making some progress--albeit on shiny distractions. Here's what's on my needles at the moment:

Solstice Slip The First

Solstice Slip, Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Lightweight in Firebird. A Sock Club selection.
One down, one to go. Fun sock, btw. This one fits so nicely and I really enjoyed knitting it.

Fifi in Progress

Fifi from FrenchGirl in Rowan Calmer. I'm having trouble capturing this color. It is much prettier than this. It is a soft lavender. I'm about 80% done with this one. I've decided I'm going to knit one tank top/shell a month. This is my August entry.

But this is the one that is completely messing up all my other goals and blogging and sleeping and eating:

Autumn Rose In Progress

Autumn Rose by Eunny Jang from the book Simply Shetland 4. I bought the kit from Two Swans and I simply can't stop knitting on this one. Aren't the colors great? (Someone will probably roll their eyes at my less-than-perfect fair isle knitting, but I'm having fun and I don't care!)

You will all excuse me, won't you? I have a Saving Grace to watch and a second sleeve to knit.

Autumn Rose is gorgeous - I am so tempted to do this pattern!

Your fair isle is absolutely lovely. Reminds me of maple leaves in the fall.
BTW.. How is that fair isle project coming that you started at Camp? That yarn you purchased from Joslyn's Fiber Farm is so beautiful, I can't wait to see the posts!

Startitis? I'd comment but I need to go start something new and I'm in a rush! :)

Ok, your fair isle is KILLER!!! And Ravelry is messing with me too in terms of starting things constantly...

Knittings Nice! said...

Am trying to get my hands on this book here in the UK...considering the Shetland Isles are only 400 miles away from me and the company Jamiesons is up there to...the book seems to disappear...rang one company Scottish Fibres who did have the book 4..but she didn't order them enough and they will take a while as they are ordered from the US....duh!...oh well have to comfort myself with looking at blogs and your fairisle is certainly lovely and the colours certainly support each other....

Autumn rose is spectacular, just spectacular. No wonder you can't stop knitting it.
