First of all, if anyone realizes I am not blogging after today, please make sure someone checks me for a malted milk egg overdose.
Okay, that said, I am going to try rotating my knitting projects today. Nonni blanket is a joy, but I cannot be solely devoted to her. The bunny brought me a little dishcloth yarn....and I had to cast right on yesterday. Then there is this blanket I am making as a gift.
Some of you may recall the failed log cabin blanket I made last summer with fixation. It ended up with a big bump in it because fixation stretches and my pickups at each edge were a problem. Well, I simply have to use this yarn anyhow. I am using the remaining fixation to work on this little blanket. Very little blanket. I've doubled the fixation in an effort to use the yarn up more quickly. However, it is very very hard on my hands and arms.
So I hear the way to keep on going, is to rotate projects. I'll let you know how it goes. I plan to work on all 3 today even if I only get an hour to knit. (ha....it's winter...I'll get more than an hour in, even though sweet husband is busy finishing painting the kitchen the lovely blue you see behind the blankie.
