Falling behind...

I'm already falling behind my quota of having 10 posts by the 30th. I'll kick it in high gear now.

Today I went to knit with my Pasadena SnB group. They are a great group of women and I always have fun knitting with them. I learn a lot too and often come home inspired to try new things.

Today Mary was working on a beaded purse. There's a picture of it on her blog. I've never knitted with beads before but this project is definitely on my 'to do' list. She's using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. It's so soft!

And then there is Beth:

Who is making the cutest baby blanket for her soon-to-be-born baby boy. I love the stitch pattern and the color combination. The stitch pattern is from one of Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting Patterns books - but I'm not sure which one. Another project in my future.

Here's a closeup:

But first I must finish some existing UFOs. I will not start a new project before I finish one that has already been started. I will not start a new project before I finish one that has already been started. I will repeat until the urge goes away or I fall asleep. (The one I started today before I wrote this doesn't count!)

Don't put too much pressure on yourself! Like knitting, blogging should be fun.

Sorry I missed you guys today.

You sound like me, no matter how many times I say it, think it, write it or type it, the yarn just seems to magically jump on a pair of free needles and suddenly I have a new project. I do believe it's a quality of good yarn, to start to knit itself when you are not looking and not finish itself *wink*

Aw go ahead and start a new project. But wait, you did! 2 in fact. The pictures are lovely especially of Beth's baby modeling the blanket.
