February Finds – On My Struggles to Stay Triogamous
There’s nothing like a yarn diet combined with an important long-term project to make the eyes wander.
I am only allowed three open projects right now:
The wedding shawl
The not-a-boyfriend-sweater cardigan (which I was supposed to finish before Christmas)
A pair of socks
But I can’t seem to stay triogamous. I don’t think I’ve ever favorited so many new patterns on Ravelry as I have during the last few weeks.
I don’t think woman was ever meant to limit herself to just three knitting projects. It’s against nature…or at least it’s against my nature.
Pain shared is pain halved right? So I’m going to share some of the delightful patterns that have me in agonies right now.
I’m Living in Sweater Dresses Right Now
I have a trio of gorgeous sweater dresses I’ve been pairing with leggings and wearing to work the last couple of months. I would love to have a few more in my wardrobe to provide variety. These gorgeous designs by Kristina McGowan are just the ticket.

I love my Romi Hill lace wedding shawl, I truly do. All the same, my next shawl project is sooooo not going to be lace. I’m going for something fierce and bold and colorful. Perhaps one of these showstoppers:
This One’s for Grandpa
When I come to the end of this yarn and project diet I’m going to let loose. I’m going to be as unruly and pleasure-seeking as a parochial school girl on her first day at a public university. Watch out, world. Here I come, needles a-clacking.
