Good Knitting Mojo

You know it's going to be a great week, despite needing to be out of town for work, when this is around the corner from you hotel.

I cast on two new projects in one day, my Sjølingstadkofta sweater and the new Paint By Numbers hat from Plucky. I haven't made a lot of progress so far, but it feels great to have them started.

And, I'm especially happy to be using a favorite new stitch marker.

For the next few weeks, I'll be knitting three projects at once, the Grannie Annie shawl I've been working on for several weeks, along with the two new ones.

Did you laugh when you read next few WEEKS? Sjølingstadkofta is a fairisle, fingering weight sweater. I'm knitting the ribbing on size 1.5 needles and it's a slow, but very enjoyable, slog. I'm guessing it will be months (if not years) before I finish it, but I love the pattern, so I'm going to soldier on. I hope to finish the hat and the shawl in the next month or so, alternating between the three projects.

There won't be any knitting for me tonight, though. I polished off this guy, along with a bunch of mussels and some corn on the cob for dinner. I'm so full that I'm not sure I can keep my eyes open any longer! So, knitting will have to wait for tomorrow.
