The beautiful thing about having so many things on needles at the same time is that I have so many projects to choose among! (The not-so-beautiful thing is that I find myself looking for a particular set of needles & finding there is already something on them...)
:: I keep reaching for my Balsam this week, and it's knitting up so quickly. The yarn is hand-dyed and even two skeins from the same dyelot vary quite a bit, so I'm alternating them as I go. If my motivation holds, I could have this finished by the weekend...
:: I brought my Peaks Island hood to my knitting group this week, which means I got a lot done while I didn't even notice because I was too busy chatting. Somehow I got halfway through the hood section while I wasn't paying attention.
:: I thought I should pick up George's birthday sweater and work on that a bit. His birthday isn't until October, but that's only eight months to finish a great big man-sized sweater, so I really should make the time to work on it regularly. I've decided to knit the body in the round instead of flat—less finish work to do that way, and I really don't love knitting things flat that will eventually be round—so we'll see how that goes.
:: My newest little doll needs a little sweater. I'm undecided whether to make another wee February, or try my hand at creating something original.
:: I have started reading The Heart of Buddhism: Practical Wisdom for an Agitated World. It was mentioned more than a few times in Buddhism for Mothers, and when I stumbled across a secondhand copy it seemed like picking up. I'm not far into it yet, but I am finding it to be really acccessible—completely different in tone and audience from Buddhism for Mothers, and enjoyable in its own way.
