Spring Cleaning cont'd

My spring cleaning turned up a few unfinished projects from last year. I have so many projects that I would like to start but, I decided that I can't until I finish or frog the items I found. I'm not sure what has happened to me lately but I have become a monogamous knitter. Which is very much unlike me. I've been known for having at least five projects going at a time. Yes I would sometimes forget where I left off on a pattern. Sometimes my gauge would be different when I decided to go back and finish a project. Maybe I just realized that I was making this knitting thing to stressful.

The first so close to complete project is Picovoli. I love this yarn and the color. It's Debbie Bliss Cathay. The only thing left to complete is the cute picot edging. Hopefully I can have this done and blocked by the weekend.

Next up is the Allhemp6 Leaf Lace skirt. I substituted the cashmere canapa in color 034. It's a really pretty chocolate brown and softer than the allhemp6. I lost track on the lace pattern so many times I decided it would be best to put a marker between each pattern repeat.

On to the Summertime Tunic. I decided I had to make this when I found the KAL. There were just too many cute FO's for me to resist. I'm using Debbie Bliss Cathay for this too. Very soft and luxurious and who can go wrong with black. I don't care what Clinton and Stacy would think. I promise I'll wear a pop of color with it just for Stacy.

Finally I'm about three quarters of the way done with my Sizzle. I'm using Berroco Glace in Pomegranate (color #2529). I love the color, I just hope it fits.

There are many more unfinished projects but those are winter sweaters so I don't need to worry about those until I do my winter cleaning. I'm glad I only clean twice a year. Just kidding!
