Bad knit blogger! Bad!

Well... it's been awhile since I've blogged because I've had very little to blog about. It seems over the past six months I've barely finished anything because each project keeps getting little things that keep setting me back. The main problem though, is that I can't seem to do basic math anymore. And by basic math, I mean counting.

The current Baby Surprise Jacket is languishing unfinished on the needles because it's been frogged four times in the past two weeks. I ripped out my Jaywalkers which were almost finished because they were just a little bit too small. I can't finish my Harlot Socks (I started them the night the Yarn Harlot was in town) because I ran out of Artyarns Ultramerino 6, colour 114. There's now more coming from the States.

I'm working on Christmas prezzies bit by bit and a sample sock for The Loop, which was frogged itself a couple of times.

Here's what's currently in progress:

The Loop's sample sock done in Trekking Pro Natura. The pattern is Embossed Leaves by Mona Schmidt, from Interweave's Favourite Socks.

This is the Christmas scarf for my brother's girlfriend, done in a garter rib. Very simple and lovely. This is a skein of yarn that I bought from Belfast Mini Mills when I was in PEI in August. It's a 50-50 blend of merino and kid mohair.

And finally, the BSJ that I keep trying to count on. Perhaps it's trying to tell me something?

Hopefully one or all of these projects will be finished this week, while I'm on vacation!

I made those socks out of cherry tree hill in almost exactly the same colour!
