For some reason, perhaps influenced by my hefty stash, I've been drawn to fingering-weight yarn projects of late. Next payday I'm ordering some long-desired sock books and a skinny yarns book that looks promising.
I've started the Tempest sweater for my daughter, since she wore the pink one I made to tatters last year. Well, not tatters, but there are some snags, worn spots, and a general dingy quality to it. She is also growing like a weed, both up and out, so a size adjustment was necessary anyway.
Inspired by my Mr. Foster adventure, I attempted some free-form amigurumi knitted animals with leftover yarns. Other than a noticeable hole where the neck meets the body, my first attempt at a giraffe is passable. However, I am running out of the yarn I used. How much orange does one buy, anyway?
I am also tempted to cast on another Girly Top, but I have strayed very far from my one-project-at-a-time resolution, so I need to focus and whittle things down. I am nearly done with the Valkyrie socks, but they are sized more for little Monkey Pants than myself. I have very narrow, long feet. Apparently I need to remember that when I try on the toes and estimate the rest of the sock.
I am also strongly tempted to order some of the current crop of Knit Picks sock kits... if only they were just the patterns and not the yarn. I seriously need to adhere to a yarn diet.
