Getting my quick fix knit urges almost satisfied. All I need to do is finish the i-cord tie for this Jade Mission Falls cotton hat then I'll have another FO.
And to keep me honest, I am on track with the BO gift scarf. I finished the 1st skein of Plymouth Baby Alpaca DK and onto the second. I suppose if I concentrate on this I'll get this done earlier than I plan, but it does take concentration and I can only do this at lunch at work away from the monkeys.
So I'll be starting my Knitty Kyoto (finally!) this weekend. Since it involves a lot of meditative St st, I can do this while watching the monkeys' antics. I'll be starting w/the back. I never did a complete swatch (bind off & wash & block) with the size 8 needles, just the 6 and 7's, so the back will be my really big swatch. I had been thinking about doing the sleeve first, but my knitting mentor keeps telling me I need to do both sleeves at the same time, so I either need to get another Boyes interchangeable set or use my extra size 8 circulars that are Susan Bates and hope there is a negligible difference in sizes.
