Eight is great!

Pictures of eight works in progress. The only eight I own.



The Sandy Cardigan looks way more finished than it is. I have to rip out the sleeve and the side panel on the left, and re-measure myself and do the math again.

And here is a shot of the beautiful #19, which I swear I will wear to my husband's fancy Christmas party this year. Probably with something red.



After some very sophisticated math with my carbiner calculator, I have figured out which project will be the quickest to finish. And the answer is Via Diagonale. And for some reason, that just ain't calling my name. The 2nd quickest, Icarus, is likewise not calling my name. The Scotch Thistle stole will take twice as long as Via Diagonale to finish and I think that's what I wanna do. I don't know. But I'm down to eight. And I feel pretty darned good about that number.

They're all beautiful. I'm sending you finishing thoughts. You'll be wearing that shawl to your husband's holiday party, and it'll look great.

Now off you go, knit Via Diagonale!

Well I say knit what's calling your name out of the 8. That way something will get done. Let's face it, we work better on things that we want to work on and why should something we do for relaxation become "work". So...knit on whatever!

Via Diagonale is a nightmare to knit, takes forever, but is so beautiful when it's finished. It took me a good two years or so to get from start to finish, so I feel your pain!

I'm very much in love with and curious about #19. I'm voting for that one.
