Beginning in the Middle

I've been thinking about having a knitting blog for some time, and as my current project is winding to a close, have finally decided to take the time to start one. It will take some time away from my knitting, but I think it will be a good record of what exactly I am up to throughout the years. Since I am indeed in the middle of some things, I may as well set forth my current Plate of Knitting.
  • Master Handknitting Level II (OTK and in the Word Processor)
  • IK Bolero Jacket in Mulled Wine for my daughter
  • Kool-Aid dyed socks for me
  • Viennese Shrug (needs ripping actually...)
And then, for the things I don't have the yarn for yet, but will be working on once the above plateful gets thin:
  • A sweater for my son
  • Felted ballet slippers for a friend
  • Shine Twist Dickey von Beethoven for mom
Did I mention the yarn for the above things should be arriving next week? Well, I did have to order something to go along with the one skein of grey I needed for my vest, didn't I? And yes, Denise, only one of the things on my list is actually on the needles at the moment (if you don't count the shrug, which I'm not.) The socks should be finding their way on TO the needles this weekend. Socks are a better take-along project than a man's extra-large vest.

I'm currently reading Marriage to a Difficult Man, by Elisabeth Dodds, about Sarah and Jonathan Edwards. Fascinating reading. If I weren't reading that, I'd be working more on digesting Future Grace, by John Piper. I'm still somewhere in the introduction to that one, though. It needs more chewing on than does Sarah Edwards.

A perfect blog name and a perfect vest. I look forward with anticipation to the socks.

I am glad that you joined the world of fiber bloggers. It is a great way to keep in touch with each other.

Have fun and, definitely, don't stop knitting.
