WIP Wednesday Aug 10

I'm joining Tami 's WIP Wednesday once again this week . As per usual there's something new in progress because I just can't seem to resist starting yet another project .I'm happy to report that the old shale crochet baby blanket is out of it's time out and back on track . No photos this week because it looks the same only bigger . As for Stella's cardigan it's still the same as last week . I'm rethinking the button choice . It needs  to be done for the end of the month , so I still have a bit of time . Why do I always second guess myself !?

The other evening I started a another baby cardigan . Little Eli is due to arrive on Aug 21 and will surely need a sweater to keep him warm this fall. I've decided to knit the 6 to 12 month size in the hopes that he'll get more wear out of it. Newborns outgrow their clothes so fast .

As always , there are socks on the needles . This will be another pair for the Warm Hands Network . I'm doing more stash busting with this yarn but I still have way too much sock yarn  for my liking . I can't knit fast enough and I'm easily distracted !

 Why is it that when you request books at the library they all come in the same week ? I"m reading Shanghai Girls from where I left off a couple of weeks ago because a book that I really wanted to read came in . Now I'm rushing through that to read the sequel Dreams of Joy . Naturally  another book that I've requested has come in . If I don't get it now heaven knows when it will be available again . So much to read and knit and so little time . Cooking , cleaning and sleeping are overrated , right ?

I think it is good to rethink a project so that you get a fresh perspective, but not too much.

Looking good! Would love to see these finished.

The red yarn for that cardigan is gorgeous! Love it. And yes -- reading definitely takes precedence over silly things like cleaning and cooking. That's why God made take out. Clearly. :)

Those socks are lovely, I'd have a hard time giving them up to charity. (But you rock for knitting for charity, yay!)

I'm glad I'm not the only one whose ordered-long-ago library books always all come in at the same time, too. Good luck getting your reading done before they're due! :)

A lovely color for that sweater! Can't wait to see it finished.

Cooking and cleaning are DEFINITELY overrated, but sleep remains a pretty high priority for me!

Those socks are sure to be appreciated up North; I better get back to making more for the next shipment!

My books ALWAYS come at the same time and then I never get to read them all before they have to go back :(

Great wips!! I fear I may have to start finishing some of my own before I start any more projects.
