YOP Update October 14th

I’ve come to realize that this year’s list is more a list of suggested knitting than what I will actually accomplish.  I’ve made more changes to the list again.  But this time instead of just adding things, I have decided to frog two items.  Two pairs of socks are gone.  One because I truly don’t have time to decipher the chart and the other because they have been on the needles for a ridiculous amount of time and have been plagued with problems since the start.  At this point I would rather reclaim the yarn and use it for a different pair of socks that will work better for me.  Two projects have been added in place of the frogged ones so the overall numbers haven’t changed.  I hope that the added  projects that will suit my knitting time better and stand a far better chance of being completed. (I’ve added a pair of socks and a scarf).

 Speaking of finishes, the Diva Mitts are finished and when the final touches are put on the second mitt I will take pictures and share then with you.  (It still needs some ends woven in and a button added).  And, I am nine rounds away from finishing the Turnagain Cowl.  Depending on how my assignments go today I may be able to finish the knitting part of it.  There is still ends to weave and sewing to do so it won’t be a “finished object’ just yet, but it’s getting pretty close.

Also, I have decided that my knitted socks are now conspiring against me.  The darning from a couple of weeks ago is still going strong, but now its mate has sprung a hole and requires my attention.  That little discovery was greeted with a rather large amount of under my breath unlady like language.  But, I know I can fix it and I think I need to research ways to reinforce the toes on my socks to keep this from happening again in the future.

Hope everyone else has had  a great knitting week and I am hoping to drop by your blogs soon.
