Today, I reorganized my Ravelry queue. I have these things that I want to knit, but than other things come up. For instance, little ones' playgroup ends next week, and I need a little gift for the two teachers. (They are wonderful!) I'm knitting them each a washcloth, a bath scrubby, and I've bought some fancy soap. But you know, those washcloths are taking time away from Branching Out, which is an April KAL. I'm also doing a test knit for some slippers. Of course, I have no camera, so I can't show any of this to you!
I don't mind the preemption of projects, but there a couple of things I want to get to before the end of June. Most notably, I need to try the baby bonnet again, with less decreases for a baby shower the first weekend in May. Also, I'm determined to knit the Lilian Tank for myself and Reasonably Hip has to be done for a birthday gift. Oh, and my neighbor is having a baby at the end of July, so something needs to be done for her. Do you see how the list grows?
The good news is, I'm proctoring 11 exams in May. This allows quite a bit of knitting time. It's too hard to read, because I can't watch the kids without remembering to look up (and I usually don't.) Knitting doesn't have that problem. I won't be doing anything complicated, but it is a good time to get a few smaller projects done. I'm hoping to finish Reasonably Hip, Baby something for my neighbor, and at least start on my second pair of socks. Also, there's a cute summer hat to knit for little girl. I might be aiming a bit high, but what the heck? I don't think the planning police are going to come after me.
I miss pictures, don't you? I'll be investigating cameras this weekend.
