So many projects, so little time...

I have so many great projects waiting to get finished or started that it is driving me insane. I want to knit and wear them all right now!!! If patience is a virtue, I'm definitely not virtuous. In fact, I may be looking the at the 9th circle - Move over Brutus, Cassius and Judas - Here I come! Pass me a Corona and let's sit back and enjoy the heat.

Green Gable is drawing to a close. Only an inch and a half more to go and it will be finished. It's definitely my quickest knit and will be finished in less than three weeks. But somehow that seems like so long when you have all of these lovelies waiting in the wings...

Say hello to Fifi by French Girl and the lovely leaf lace skirt from Hemp for knitting. These two little beauties will be next to go on the needles. I am so excited to give Rowan Calmer a whirl. From everything I've heard, Rowan Calmer is like Yarn Crack. Once you take a hit, you are addicted for life. My Fifi will be done in the colorway Kiwi.

I have to admit that I'm a little afraid of what knitting with the Allhemp 6 for the Lovely Leaf Lace Skirt will be like but I am a wimp and so I will just have to put my big girl pants on and ride it out. Who knows, I may even build a few muscles working with the Allhemp 6. I have say the FO pics I've seen of the Lovely Leaf Lace Skirt are gorgeous and the world will not be a wonderful place until I have one of my own. My LLLS will be a nice shade of chocolate for maximum wearability with a variety of tops and footwear. If I am going to wrestle the hemp, I'm going to get all that I can out of it.

I am also chomping at the bit to get started on these two must-haves for the well-dressed girl. Every girl needs to have a great black top in her wardrobe. The black Cascade Pima Tencel that is destined to become the Shaped Lace Tee from Knitting Lingerie Style is ready to fulfill its potential and become a truly great top. Not only is one skein in my stash waiting to become a one skein wonder but a second is waiting for me to get my butt moving as well.

I'm afraid that I will have to continue the saga of the project overload that I currently have going on in a later post as I cannot bear to think of how far behind I am in my knitting and how badly I want to be able to wear each and everyone of these items RIGHT NOW. I'm off to get back to work on Green Gable and hopefully have a finished object to show off in the next day or two to offset all of the projects that are still waiting in the wings.
