No god awful green to update with this time.

Terrible photos of the black hole of knitting! BUT I have made progress in the last three days during my break from painting the house a god-awful green that I so dearly love. I've knit about four inches, that's approximately from the top of the white card to the needle. Size 6 needles, argh! I have four more inches to do then it's a red stripe and neck shaping. Followed by two sleeves and a neck edging done in this ribbing of course LOL.
I'm kind of obessed with getting the black hole done because of the way my WIP basket is looking! Isn't that terrible? I really would like to see it a little lower and more contained in the basket and I have a baby sweater I need to make in July that isn't even IN there! Thankfully it's a tiny newborn size, that I can tuck into a corner LOL. I also have my summer sock party sock to do. Oh man, so much to do and so little time! It does feel good to have done some knitting and finally seeing progress.
So I'm off to do a bit more knitting before I have to make dinner and run off to work. I have Friday and Saturday off and it will be painting and reading. My pile of summer reading books needs to be whittled down as bad as my WIPs basket. Have a great day and Knit On!

Looks like you need a bigger WIP basket. You are making great progress both on the house and with your knitting.

BTW, how many do you have in progress?

Yes, larger basket is needed, then it won't seem so overwhelming. ;)

Bigger basket? No LOL, it keeps me in check.

How many, lets see:
3 socks (max, grant, karl)
1 shawl (mine)
1 poncho (mine)
2 sweaters (garrett, mine)

so 7... geesh, and I need to start two more for deadline projects. How many weeks do I have until school starts again? LOL

Doesn't ribbing just seem to eat yarn and never get any larger?! I think it is my least fav thing to do, but it always looks good when you have it done!

If not a bigger basket, you could always get more baskets, like I have. Hee Hee!
