Knitting ADD.

I've got what you might call a severe case of knitterly ADD lately. Could it be because the semester's over! (Woo hoo!) Could it be because I unofficially stopped teaching two weeks ago because I smartly built in student presentations on the syllabus? (Can I get a whut whut?)

Well, the celebrating's a bit premature, because, alas there are still papers to grade. But behold the fruits of my work avoidance:

This is the Roundabout Leaf Tank (I think that's what the name is) from Knitting Nature, in Berroco Denim Silk (such a misnomer, there's so little silk in there and so much synthetic fiber). I started this a while ago, and have been knitting a little on it here and there.

Pasha! It's a penguin! Look, look! The magic of short rows. So cool.

Sweet Mary Jane, which I started a very, very long time ago (mmm, maybe around Christmas?). At first the lace pattern was giving me some grief, but ever since I switched from jump rings to regular Susan Bates stitch markers, it's been easy going. I've made quite a bit of progress lately! Which you can't really tell from the little bit of progress I had before, but trust me on this one.
The Lullaby baby blanket for my niece-to-be. I finally got it, Caron's Simply Soft in this pretty mint green. Searched though I might, there is no Cotton-Ease to be had in the Austin area Michael's or Hobby Lobbys. S'ok, though, because I'm really happy with this color, which seems to have a pearly luminescence. Not bad for acrylic, eh?

Today, though, I got what I think will be my cure for the knitting ADD. The yarny equivalent of Ritalin, if you will.

The big reveal for next time!

We've got Cot-Ease here, let me know what you want and I can pick it up for you. But, first you have to tell me what's in the box. ;-)
