Another year has gone and so we (I) lurch onto 2009. Very little has changed. I'm still trying not to start too many projects and I'm still trying to finish those I start!! Some of the projects have been festering for too long.
Currently I'm working on:
Smoulder from Rowan 31 a lot of substitution has taken place due to discontinued yarn, but I've loved this pattern from the moment I saw it - I have no idea what took me so long to start it . I managed to start is 3 days ago and I'm loving it. However, I made a pact with myself. Starting Smoulder means I have to finish 2 old projects, of which there are a few.........

The Mystery blanket, which is missing just 3 squares. 2 borders are done - must finish this soon. This is one of the pact WIP's.

Print 'O the waves stole. I've now completed 6 repeats. I had delusions of completing a repeat per evening. Instead, this poor WIP has been stuffed in a corner until a few nights ago. However, as I'm sure many will know, you have to be in the right frame of mind to read a chart.

Don't ask me what possessed me to knit myself a pair of leg warmers. They are gorgeous though. I've half of the second one to complete.

The curved edge cardigan is luscious pure silk. This has been languishing in a corner for months. This is the 2nd of the pact WIP's. I just need to sew the border on - however, that's not as easy as it sounds!!

Picnic. This is a long terms project so my conscience is not pricking me so much on this one. But I'm aiming to be a bit more disciplined in order to finish it this year.

Of course this does not include socks and, well we just won't go there!! Now all I nned ot tackle is the destash.......
