Stacked. Yarn Along - Feb. 27

Yarn Along
This week I worked on five different projects! Two are finished - one of which will have a post of its own and the other was the green sample sweater that was mailed home.  On top of the books I have a cabled figerless mitt, a blanket and a crochet cowl (I'm trying out the Miss Adler design). And as you can see, I have yarn wound and ready to start several new projects as well.  In the stack of yarn cakes there is a skein of Malabrigo Rios ready for a Malabrigo March project, a skein of Good Karma Farm yarn ready for swatching for the Morning Joe KAL, and a skein of yarn my parents bought for me in Chile when they were visiting my brother & his girlfriend.  The Chile yarn does not have a project yet, but it's been at my desk waiting for inspiration to strike.  I believe it is 100% wool, fingering weight (though I'm not sure), and I have ~90g.  In my search for a project, I've also been accumulating other patterns that I am just itching to start - for me, for others, for babies due this year!

Reading wise, I'm halfway through Case Histories and still enjoying it! I have also been reading a chapter of Nancy Clancy: Super Sleuth with the Lorax each night.  We are big Fancy Nancy fans and I thought that this might be a good next step for us, but I think it might be a little too "old" for my girl.  I think a lot of it goes over her head - and there's not much of the "that's a fancy word for..." like in the Fancy Nancy books.  A book is a book.  I have a stack of crochet books from the library as well as Knit Local and I am enjoying them enough to consider buying them at some point in the future. 

And how about you?

Goodness 5 projects..I can hardly keep up with one or two. I will have to look up the book about the sleuth sounds good:)

The yarn looks yummy. I am glad to see that I am not alone with multiple projects on the needles!

All that yarn looks like a lot of fun. Looking forward to the bigger post of the finished items :). I've got to check out Nancy Clancy... my son is getting bored of the books we have and I'm wondering what we should try reading to him.

As for me, I've been reading the latest Vanity Fair magazine, mainly because I can't get enough magazines and I've just cast on the Dahlia Cardigan.

Happy Knitting!!!
