I'm totally overwhelmed, but in the best possible way. I have SO much new yarn, and SO many project on the needles and in mind, I just don't know what to work on! It's like an all you can knit buffet in my house right now! I got my knitpicks Cotlin for the Aleita Shell, plus some green Swish Superwash for a baby sweater. I purchased a bit of Cascade Sierra from a friend to make up a CUTE baby sweater I'm dying to work on as well. My trip up island on the weekend meant a couple yarn purchases, of course, and those are itching to be knit. Babies are due all over the place this spring and summer so I need to keep knitting gift stuff, and I have a few "nearly done" projects on the needles as well!

Thankfully I have about an hour of knitting time each day on the bus, and then some time in the evenings to knit in front of the TV. Still, there just aren't enough hours in the day, it seems.....

I've been knitting a LOT lately. Good thing, because I keep buying more yarn. I have to at least pretend I'm going to be able to knit it all up in to something!

I am nearly finished Argen's Gansey sweater, and I'm really happy with how it's turning out. It's exactly what I wanted to make for him, and the colour is fantastic for him. Photos when it's completed. (I only have the collar to knit on, so it shouldn't be long) I'm working on some baby knits, I know of lots of babies on the way soon. I've got a seamless baby kimino needing buttons, a baby hat I just finished, and a mini vestee I'm planning on starting today.
