One Down, One to Go!

I finished my first Essential to Perfection sock, AKA Loopy Academy Twisted Stitches project!  The second sock is cast on and barely begun, but it is underway.  The pattern is simple enough, once you get a feel for it, and it does work up fairly quickly for an intricate lace pattern.  I've also found that it's easy enough to work in front of the TV.

I've got a serious case of cast-on-itis right now and I want to start lots of new things.  So far I've been able to behave myself, but I'm not sure how much longer I'll hold out.  In addition to these socks, I have Lorelai the Mermaid (I need to start her arms next), my Meditative blanket in cool colors (also crochet), the Carson Throw (which I'll start working on again on Friday), and the weaving and the spinning (which hasn't been touched in weeks), and that's not counting the sewing projects.  It's not like I have nothing to do.  I do think that after I finish these socks I will do another shawl/wrap thing, and I've got yarn for a sweater wound and ready to go, but I'm waiting for some specific needles for that.  The only thing keeping me from losing my mind and casting on for everything in my stash is the knowledge that when I have too many projects in progress it feels out of control and crazy to my brain.

Must.  Not.  Cast.  On.  Keep knitting!

Love it!

Stay strong. I'm fighting the startitis bug over here myself.
