I haven't been only starting things... (even though I wish that was a worthy goal, sigh)
I finished a sock! Maybe that isn't exactly finishing because it's one sock of two, but there's a feeling of completion since it's the same sock I cast on on my return trip from Norway in March.
It's the sort of sock where
you I have to watch the chart all the time. And it's the kind of chart I wouldn't be able to use on the Know It All bag. It can only help you with repeated patterns up to 10 stitches. The Vilai sock is a symmetrical pattern on each side or a 32 stitch repeat. This link from Marguerite shows the huge difference yarn/color makes in pattern.
Now for the Old that has become the New!
Remember this, anyone? I knitted this years ago (BR = Before Ravelry). Lucky for me, and my obsessive mind, I started keeping a log of projects in April, 2008. I was frustrated with myself for -- guess what--starting things, and returning to them years months days hours later, the needles missing, and having no idea what I was thinking! Voila! I have info on this Celtic Tote from Interweave Knits, Winter '07 (p. 98). In the summer of '06, somewhere in Eastern Ontario, I bought roving, for the first and only time. I really didn't know why or what I could do with it, but later, in the Spring of '08, I rounded up my knit group to help me un-ravel it. It was in 5 plys, so I rolled it into single ply balls, and knitted it without spinning. It felted beautifully! I'm just dang lucky... I used Cascade in white for the trim.
Knitted in May '08, finished May '10. (All it needed was the lining...)
