I just can't stop. It's like there's 20+ years of pent up knitting going on. I'm not going to argue with it; I am making things that come in pairs, so if this makes sure both items get made, I'm good with that.
Anyway I've made one pair of fingerless mitts from the Tamra's Day Brightener yarn and now I am on the second sock. Something that small and portable is so easy to knit on during lost / found time. For example while waiting for pasta water to boil, I can get 5 needles knit - not quite 2 rounds. Today we are heading north to celebrate a birthday and Mother's Day, so I will refrain from knitting until I am in the car. And since the pattern, which is free on Ravelry, is a PDF, I was able to download it to my phone and open it with my Kindle app, which means it's with me all the time and I didn't have to print it. Technology is amazing.
I've decided to buy another set of size 1 dpns, so I can cast on both socks (or mitts) at once and work the same section on both. I like that idea better. With a Hobby Lobby coupon, it's a cheap investment.
I also did a lot (whoo boy a lot) of online shopping this weekend. I went ahead and ordered yarn and a needle for Camp Loopy's first project, which is June. The second project is July and I hope I can make that while on the vacation I have yet to plan. The third is August and that month is hard but I am determined to find a way. My goal was to make 12 yarn projects this year. I have 2 done. #3 is in progress and #4 is queued up. the Camp Loopy order had yarn for 3 projects in it, so that will get me to 7. I have a worsted weight acrylic afghan started (actually 2 of them - different patterns) and I hope to knock at least one out this year.
My yarn stash is about 2 laundry baskets and I'd like it down to one, so that is the goal.
Other online shopping included Market Day (last order that has to last me through the summer), Essential Bodywear (they had a sale), (stupid Oxford comma) and Penzey's Spices. And an order and Amazon for coffee. It was a lot of money spent in a really short period of time but I'm good for a while.
No sewing. Haven't had the strong urge to go back, but hopefully this week. Gotta get 2 girl quilts done in as many weeks. Plus I have to finish up my YBR, which I have stalled out on. Not big deal; it will all get done.
