WIPs, Secrets & Startitis

Though the Caesious KAL is over(ish), I'm still plugging away at mine since I pretty much only work on it outside of the house - it's great for riding the CTA and taking to knit night! There really isn't much of a difference since last week, so I thought I'd go with a more interesting photo this week just to spice things up.


Over the weekend, I started the first sleeve on my Block Island Pullover - although I didn't make it far:


Both of these are slow going, though, because I have to spend most of my crafting time working on two new top-secret designs! Well, I am allowed to share some sneak peeks here and there...for instance, this beautiful and colorful skein of yarn came into my life recently, and it is going to become something fun!


Of course, I wouldn't be me if I didn't totally distract myself by starting an new project which will likely take years to complete. Seriously, what was I thinking when I decided to start a worsted weight mitered square blanket with scrap yarn this weekend?! The good news is, I'm kind of obsessed with working on it....and the bad news is, I'm kind of obsessed with working on it. I clearly will need to set some ground rules with this project (i.e., I can only work on it when I've completed X number of hours on my other designs and WIPs, and I'm not allowed to knit more than a square each day). I'm also still kinda sorta keeping up with the whole zoom loom square-a-day challenge, so I suppose you can say that I am square obsessed of late.


How do you avoid startitis?
