Monogamy Slows Me Down

The monogamy I refer to is with my knitting.  I rarely have more than two projects on the needles.  When I first started knitting, I told myself to finish my current item before casting on another - I knew that I would probably not go back to finish.  Is this a bad thing?  Not in my mind, but it does slow me down.  Sometimes, I just don't want to knit on my current project and so I don't knit at all.  That is when I turn to pattern surfing on Ravelry.

What is on my needles right now?  Just two projects.  First is a pair of socks that I am halfway through.  The yarn is Highland Handmades Sugar Maple Sock in the Hard Cider colorway.

The pattern I chose is called Zigzagular Socks by Susie White.  I just cast on the second sock over the weekend and would like to have the socks done by the end of January.

My second project has been hibernating since last Spring.  It is the Rambling Rows Afghan by Carol A. Anderson with Lion Brand Amazing in the Acadia colorway.  I really thought about using Noro, but felt the recipient (my son) would find the Noro too scratchy.

I was cruising on this blanket with a goal of finishing it by the end of the year, but life got crazy and knitting ceased for a few months.   Life is back on track and now the knitting must resume!
