Look WIPs and lots of 'em…

I think I may be incapable of finishing projects. I am half way done a stack of projects. The pretty blue wrap that I've been working on forever (that darn ball never seems to get any smaller) I found a sparkly blue brooch to wear with it when it's finally done. Violet's violet scarf (I was having problems with the eyelet stiches and ripped it out a couple of times.

My son's boarding hat (it seems like the project most likely to be finished in the near future).

My sister's first sock… I am in love with the colour shifts… my second sock. Heavy sigh… I'm not even casting on for the ribbon shell until I get a few of these done. I am enjoying all of these projects and wanting to start more. I almost went to M1 today but if I buy more yarn I'll just want to start more stuff. My problem is I get all inspired by new patterns and new yarn. Now I have even more patterns and more patterns not to mention yarn calling me but I must resist! Guess it's time to stop buying knitting books too. With the new job, I don't have as much time to knit as I did (darn earning a living for getting in the way of my knitting). I also took on a little freelance project that needs to be finished and sent to press.

And, tonight I have a date! And not with "the Hanger" either. This is like a real date. The hanger is a great guy, at least he always is to me, don't get me wrong but he is a total guy. shallow as they come (even he admits that). He disappears for days at a time, watches porn and plays video games 'til 2:00 in the morning when he doesn't have to work, then sleeps all day etc. He's a friend and we have fun paling around, but he's an unrepentant bad boy and I know way too many of his dark secrets. He cheated on his wife, he cheated on his live in girlfriend to quote one of the girls I work with he's… well he's "skeezy" no matter how much fun he is. No, this is a guy I met through someone at work. He likes kids, does volunteer work (firefighting and search and rescue), is outdoorsy etc. I'm not at all attracted to him but he asked me out and what the heck just because nice guys don't attract me doesn't mean I shouldn't give them a chance right? Right.

Hey Leah, that sock yarn for my sister is Trekking (XXL) in colour pack #14. It's a superwash nylon blend and is lovely to work with

I too have problems finishing projects, but I'm working on it. At times I feel like I should go to some type of support group for it. lol.

I know all about being attracted to the bad guys, and let me tell you, I fell in love with a good guy and glad that I did! Why must the bad guys be fun? ;)
