I can't focus, WIP

This week I decided I would, in fact, work on a few projects I've been thinking about.  I don't actually mean anything I already have on the needles, but things I was waffling about whether or not I would do.  So I cast on two new (or rather, old) projects this week.

First up is my second blue sock.  After washing the first one it still fits just fine, so I've decided to make it a sibling.  Really, what is the point of only one sock?   I've also decided to start my second Tiny Tea Leaves pullover for daughter B (that's what she was called in the womb, baby A already got her sweater).  I am going to make it the next size up to give her a bit more room, as she is slightly larger than her sister.  I'm pleased to get it going, because she is getting pretty excited!


The last project I'm currently working on is the red baby blanket.  I'm still plugging away on this one, and I'm about 70% done.  I actually need to find out when the baby shower is, so I can use that as motivation.  Any time I have a long time for a project I just take ages.  Sorry about the terrible picture, red is worse than black!



That's all from me for now, see you guys on Friday!

  1. Glad the sock is going to get a mate, it would be a real shame to have only one sock ;)

    I know what you mean about long deadlines, I am terrible at working on things if I have ages for them... Then of course the deadline sneaks up and it's a mad rush at the end!

  2. I've been flitting between things as well, and you've just made me realise that it is because the deadlines are so far in the future! Will have to find some urgent things to get done to regain my focus!!

  3. Hooray for a second sock! I always do both socks at the same time since I am afraid I wouldn't make a second one.
    The red blanket is very pretty and I love the pattern.
    Happy Yarn Along!

  4. You've shattered my "single socks are objets d'art" campaign. That second sweater is going to be fabulously cheery!

  5. Tiny Tea Leaves is going to be lovely in that colourway. And what a lovely yarn bowl as well!

  6. Sometimes finishing up 'old' projects can be a catalyst for new ideas. It reminds me of a fresh new notebook. Finish up using my old notebook so I can make room for my new one. I agree with red. It and yellow are so hard to photograph well.

  9. Love your projects! I have three on the needles too and I have trouble focusing. I always feel I should be working on the ones I'm not working on :)

  11. I love the tiny leaves pattern and I agree the sock will be happy to have a partner. If not no one will know if the other gets lost in the wash : (

  12. It must feel good to refocus on getting those projects done. That's great that the sock fit after washing! And that blanket is going to be such a beautiful gift!

  13. That's a lot on your knitting plate. But they will all be beautiful!

  14. That baby blanket is so adorable! I know what you mean about focusing on a project. I get knitting ADD occasionally too. :)

  15. Aw, that baby blanket is adorable! I love that you are making a new pullover PLUS a mate for your sock. I have often thought about walking around with one sock. My nine year old son does it occasionally and he seems so care free when he does ;-)

  16. I'm having a hard time focusing on a single project right now, too...I even have half a stuffed fish I started for no real reason earlier tonight in bed with me right now...

    Anyway, I love the colour and texture of that blanket---it's so non-traditionally "baby," which I think is amazing! The blue sock is looking great, too.

  18. hi there, so nice to meet you! i just read your bio and we might almost be each other but in reverse (although I don't have twins, but I have twin bro&sis). I love the tiny tea leaves - I didn't know it came in kid sizes or that you could make a sweater...just lovely!

  19. I always have a few projects going at once. Glad you will have a matching sock, though with a couple of my girls mismatched socks are all the rage ;)

    1. Hi Kristine. You know, my girls love to wear mis-matched socks. Maybe I should take a page out of their book and save myself some effort! :)

  20. Baby Blanket looks fab, well done. Red is really difficult to photograph, I tried all last week to get a decent picture of my mittens, lol!

  22. Glad your first sock fits!! I love the blue color.

    Your baby blanket is coming along nicely - what a lucky baby!

  23. I work better with a deadline, too. And I hear you about trying to get a decent photo of red knits. Near impossible! The blanket looks pretty and snuggly. That'll be one lucky baby.

I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
