Something fast, something that gives (almost) immediate gratification. I’m in the middle of a sweater, a huge crocheted shawl, a pair of socks, a dog sweater and the cutest flag garland ever. I’m not counting my Christmas knitting — it’s not the last minute yet and I don’t want to let the cat out of the gift bag. Anyhow, despite my vow to not start anything new until the WIPs are at least a little bit under control, I caved. I needed a project that offered some immediate gratification. Rav served up the perfect pattern, Leafy Washcloth. I knit up the first one last evening and it’s blocking as I type this.
I used some Sugar and Cream cotton that I had around and size 7 straight needles, filling the immediate gratification bill perfectly. Feels so good to have a FO!

OFF THE NEEDLES
Nothing, despite a serious case of startitis and my resolve to not start anything new until I get at least one of my current WIPs off the needles.
ON THE NEEDLES
First sleeve of Mariella Cardi
Best Friend Scarf using a ball of Jojoland Melody I found in one of my stash dives.
The second sock of a pair for me; the yarn is a mystery, the pattern is in my head.
I need to bust a move on at least one of these projects, I have a pattern and yarn that is calling me like a sideshow barker, “Hurry, hurry, hurry! Step right this way! Get ready for the most fabulous project of your life! Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Should I (diplomatically) point out typos in a friend’s otherwise beautiful website? They’re nothing serious, nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a simple proofread; wouldn’t you want something that represents you to be perfect? Should I mention it or should I MYOB? What would you do?
