"Tuxedo Junction" is done- and below is my 6" section in black and white mosaic. (Each section is a black and white mosaic pattern.)
I had to stash dive in the acrylic stash to get the yarn out for this- and it just set me off on charity distractions. I would REALLY... REALLY like to get my acrylic stash down to nuthin'. Like nuthin' nuthin'. I'm actually pretty close. Diving in the stash gave me a chance to survey what else was down there and lo and behold I a) signed up for another blanket, b) started my own blanket ("Seasonal" themed)
and c) got inspired to knit an entire WCOBB blanket myself. (Because you know, I apparently think I have spare time.... HAHAHAHA)
THEN- I got inspired to knit a mysterious Christmas project for someone- but I'm not going to be spoiling that here. Ravelry members can see what I end up doing once that gets going- but there won't be much discussion or pictures until that has been gifted. It's another mystery project!
And then- ANOTHER inspiration for ANOTHER mystery project for Christmas fell into my lap and I fell down the pattern search rabbit hole over on Ravelry.
All of this means to say simply, I didn't work on what I'm actually SUPPOSED to be working on right now. God I get distracted easily.
I've had to start doing a little knitting "goal setting" in order to get me through and knit all the things I want to knit.
1) I must get the entire knitting portion (not the rather substantial crochet border) of the argyle blanket by Nov 15.
2) I can then switch between pattern design, and cast on for Mystery Project #1 and crochet border done on the blanket by Nov. 30.
3) Mystery Project #1 must be in blocking pins by Dec 10. (I cannot believe I'm already thinking about Dec!)
4) Mystery Project #2 must be blocking by Dec 22.
5) Charity blanket done by me can begin as soon as other projects are finished.
This doesn't include the other blanket I signed up for, but I can usually turn those around in a day or 2, so I think it shouldn't throw too much of a wrench into my planning.
So stay tuned- it's about to get a whole lot more interesting around here while I try and keep myself on track. Hopefully it means a few more FO's to brag about soon!
