Right now, I have three projects on the needles, although thankfully not the same needles! 馃槈

The more I talk to knitters, the more I realize I’m not alone. And there are perfectly good reasons why each of these projects remains “in progress.”聽 You may have the same problem challenge.

Here are my current projects:

Knee socks in progress

Knee socks in progress

I started these socks in the early spring. It was unusually cool for South Carolina. And now, well, it’s summer. Thankfully, there’s air conditioning. These are my first pair for myself, and I’m not sure how to finish the tops. the first cuff I tried was too tight. And, then other projects popped up.

This is actually the second of two fingerless mittens. You can see the cuff here. The color is actually a deeper purple. And it’s Caron Simply Soft Yarn -Iris, so it’s, well, very soft! Mittens in summer? Yes, the fingerless ones are nice for folks with arthritis or other conditions of their wrists and hands. They do seem to decrease the stiffness and aching, at least for some folks.

My final project is the one I started last.

Entrelac knit in the round in progress

Entrelac knit in the round in progress

I saw the directions for Entrelac in the round, and well, just had to try it. It’s challenging and interesting. And I’m not quite sure what it’s going to be. I’m thinking maybe a cell phone purse, and am open to suggestions. These colors are also brighter than the picture shows.

Here’s a final picture of the base row of triangles for this entrelac. Yes, they do look odd. And they do straighten themselves out after the next tier: the first tier of rectangles.
