More WIPs and Fiber Friday

One of the reason why I have so many WIPs is that once I have casted on a project, I think of it as done, because I just have to finish it. So, with this logic, while I had 14 projects on the needles, I added 4 more. To my defense, two are x-mas presents, Fetching for my sister:


and Thuja for my brother-in-law


They do not arrive until the 26th, so I have plenty of time to finish these, and Frufru Girl. My nephew? A box of LEGOs is getting more appealing by the minute.

And since I have so much time before x-mas, I started two scarves just because - I am sure I am forgetting someone, and they will get a scarf:

Multidirectional Scarf
Pattern: Multidirectional Scarf by Karen Baumer
Yarn: Mille Colori by Lang Yarns

One Row Scarf
Pattern: One Row Handspun Scarf by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Yarn: Karaoke in Playful by South West Trading Company

Among all these new projects, I did finish something, the socks for my brother:

Shepherd Sport Multi by Lorna's Laces

Not only I completed them, but I did on two circulars:

As I said, I was terrified at the idea of raunning out of yarn, so I decided the only way to go was to knit them at the same time. I took a deep breath. I ignored them for a week (one circular needle makes me giddy, the idea of two circular needles almost make me want to pick up crochet), and them I did it. And the socks survived.

Fiber Friday: The Yetsy team members make an effort to list new yarns and fibers on Etsy every Friday - I usually remember around Sunday night, but I am getting better and I did this morning. Check out all the listings, amazing crack stuff.
