Apparently, I am unable to take a photo without a shoe photo bomb. I usually crop them out, but you know what? They want to be in the photo so much, let them be in the photo, right?
As ever, I have too many knit/crochet projects in the works. I just popped over to my Ravelry notebook to count them, and discovered that I have 17 right now. 18 if you count the gift I'm making that I haven't put in there yet, and if I'm going to be honest about my issues, I should count it. Earlier this summer, I gathered all those various and sundry projects up and put them in storage bins. Now I know where they are! There are 5 that aren't stored in there, because they are the ones I've been rotating through, trying to put a dent in the madness. I've been doing pretty well not starting a bunch of new projects. This is a good thing, since my storage bins are full! Don't get me wrong. There are plenty of projects I am just itching to get going, but my goal is to finish 3 that are already started before starting a new one. My biggest problem right now is I can never seem to decide which project I should work on. I've given up deciding, and am leaving it up to a random number generator.
This week, the handy RNG has chosen the Mermaid jacket. This poor thing has been in the works since December 2008. For at least 2 years now, the body has been completed, and it's only been missing its sleeves.
When last I worked on it, I completed this much of a sleeve. That's right, more than half. Then I put it away! Why on earth would I put it away when I was so close to the finish line? I think this one is going to stay on my radar until done this time. I just can't see putting it away yet again.
My finishes this summer are going to have me ready for the cool days of late fall!
