Apparently, I really can't stop knitting. I finished the Lace Ribbon Scarf last week. Blocked it and sent it on it's way without a taking a picture. No time to do so. So, many pretty finished knits leave without a farewell photo session. I work well with a deadline but always to the last minute. With only one hank of yarn the scarf ended at 57" in length, it's a decent length for wearing with a jacket and not getting all tangled up.
Speaking of tangled up. That green expanse above is my Tangled Yoke Cardigan that I started two nights ago in a frenzy. The yarn is Rowan Scottish Tweed dk and I only have 5 balls. Hmmmmm, will definitely need more, but how much more? I'm guessing 7. Still, I'm waiting until all 5 are knit to place an order. It's a risky move because it means putting the project down and whenever I do that it usually takes me YEARS to finish. I need to work obsessively on one thing until it's done or else it will languish.
Witness, above, the product of a knitting frenzy from last December, it's the Arctic Diamond Stole. Oh, how I love this; but I had to put it away to work on work knitting and this is the first chance I've had to reevaluate it. At some point, I thought it would make a great pullover so I worked some decreases for arm shaping. But, now I'm not so sure because the idea of knitting the rest of this piece, then a front and TWO sleeves does not sound interesting. Better to just frog down to the shaping and continue working it as a stole.
