Too many projects

I have been busy painting and remodeling my dining room. I took some before shots so I could post some before and after shots. I have managed to squeeze some knitting in. The Indigo Ripple skirt is close to being done.

Here's a close up of the lace pattern. I love it but I'm kind of over knitting this. I had to put it down for a little while and move onto something else. I started the Yogini Bolero. I'm using the same yarn and color that Wendy used. I wanted to make it in the Red Hemp but Kpixie didn't have three skeins in stock when I placed my order.

This has been a really fast knit. I'm glad this is one of those patterns that you can try on as you go. I'm making the size small so I knit until it measured 10.5 inches from the cast on but when I tried it on it was too high up on my bust. I made the top a little longer and bound off to try it on but it still seems too high. I'm debating if I should add a little more length. I may sleep on it before deciding to rip out my bind off.

Well, I'm off to finish my paining.

OK so you are super fast on the yogini! What size needles did you end up using? How do you like the hemp? Mine is coming along I did separate off the sleeves yesterday! My gauge is off, so I knit a couple extra increase rounds before splitting the sleeves off though. I think I'm going to go a little longer on mine before I cast at least 12 inches maybe a little more!

All the WIPs are looking great! Did you see that Wendy Knit & Tonic linked to your Drive thru?
