This is Cheryl Marie’s fault

So, in a fit of insanity, I’ve decided to join Cheryl Marie in her knit marathon. Besides deprive myself of sleep, I hope to accomplish several things, in more or less this order:

  1. Finish all the pieces and seaming for the Moorish Mosaic Afghan
  2. Finish the Belle Epoque socks
  3. Finish the Delphine tank
  4. Watch the first season of Stargate SG-U on Netflix
  5. Watch the BBC America marathon of Being Human

Of course, these plans didn’t prevent me from swatching for a new project this afternoon. We’ll see how well I resist temptation to cast on something different. We’ll also see if I’m still married by this time tomorrow evening.

Work in progress Wednesday

Hello, yeah, it’s been a while.  Not much, how ’bout you?

*shakes head*  Whoa.  70s moment.

It’s Wednesday, still, barely, but there’s still time to join in on the WWIP meme.  Sadly, most of the WIPs are the same as the last time I participated in this meme.  Sadder still, I’ve added to them. *hangs head in shame*

Let’s get the oldies out of the way first:
Belle Epoque 1
The Belle Epoque socks are in exactly the same state as they were last time.  Not a single new stitch has been added.  Ditto with the Windowpane coat:
Windowpane 1

And the Delphine tank:
Delphine 2

And the baby blanket:
Spare baby blanket 5

The Sweet Nothing shrug needs blocking:
Sweet Nothing 1
As does the other baby blanket which I failed to take a picture of before sitting down and writing this entry.  In the new stuff, there’s another afghan which has been taking up the majority of my time:

And then there’s this hat I’m designing on the fly because I had only two skeins (about 260 yards) of this fabulous bulky wool and couldn’t find a pattern to suit me:

 

Loose cables at a large gauge.  The hat should take up about 1 skein of the wool.  I’ll make a matching cowl with the other skein.
