I have been thinking about my projects, current and past, and the ones I want to attempt in the future. I have 3 currently in progress, meaning that I'm actually knitting on them actively. The first is the My Cup of Tea socks, which I tried on last night and they are a bit tight. Which means that I will probably rip them out and just knit a pair of plain socks for myself. I could possibly adjust the pattern with some math, but the pattern won't stick in my brain for whatever reason, meaning that I have to keep a piece of paper in front of me. That sort of defeats the purpose have having traveling knitting. I want something that I can memorize or I don't have to think about and can pull out at a moment's notice to work on. I may just "create" my own pattern - use a simple stitch repeat like the Bee Stitch and just get going. I like something that I can stick in my purse and pull out when I have a spare moment.
I have fewer and fewer of those these days, as I am becoming my husband's personal assistant. It's not really all that bad - he is just having a lot of doctor's appointments and I am the one who has to coordinate them all within his work schedule. He's having cataract surgery in August, which is rough because he has to have them one at a time and each eye requires a week off of work. Most people don't think that's a big deal, but it is when you don't have sick time or vacation, and if you don't work, you don't get paid. We have to carefully orchestrate everything, and I get to be the conductor. It's not as exciting as it sounds, I promise.
My 12 Days of Christmas garland got sidetracked, because the color combination wasn't quite what I wanted. I got about 2/3rds done, and didn't like it. Fortunately, it's small, so it wasn't that much work.
My sweater is still in progress, but working on the other 2 things means the sweater goes for TV knitting. And since I haven't been watching much TV these days, there's not much progress on it. I have split it for the front and back, and am working now on the front.
