I'm plugging along on Lucky. I had to rip out my bind off on the right front and knit a few more rows. Someone lost count of her rows and wasn't paying close attention to the schematic.
I'm thinking I can get it done by the end of April. It will be perfect for our May weather. I also need to go ahead and finish the Hip to Knit turtleneck that has evolved into more of a boatneck sweater. I only have one sleeve left to go. I hate having almost finished objects around, I'm much too obsessive, so I want to get that done. I've been enjoying Lucky so much so far that I haven't picked anything else up. I can't believe I am enjoying lace on size 2 needles but I am.
What to do next? I have this mint green yarn that I plan on turning into a tank and slim fitting summer cardigan. I have 2 skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece that I think is going to end up as a Minisweater, minus the edging. I'll have to refigure the pattern for a smaller gauge, and I'm not fond of the puffy sleeves so I think I'll have plenty of yarn. I guess I could knit it double stranded but for summery things and being short and small framed, I really prefer the look of the smaller gauge.
After that, I am liking Cable 8 from the Spring Interweave Knits and then there are a couple of things in the upcoming summer IK that I like. And my Mom's taken up yoga and has a bagless mat. The shame! She needs the Stitch and Bitch Nation yoga mat bag. It should be a cheap (Lion Cotton) and relatively quick pattern to do.
The new Knitty will most likely have a project or two I can't resist as well. By the time I'm done with all of this, it will be time to start plotting knits for next fall and winter!
