Breaking knitting rules.


I have a golden knitting rule. At least, I did. Now I've broken it. The rule was only one knitting project at a time. Then the cooler weather happened and I started to think how I needed to get a move on with my little one's cardigan considering her old one is too small now.
Project number 1: Annie (pattern by Tikki) cardigan in my "Pink Princess" colourway. 


Then the news of a new niece or nephew mid year came. I immediately thought of the beautiful (and free) pattern by Julia Stanfield, and how I had been longing to have an excuse to knit it. I'm dyeing most of the yarns for this one too.
                                         Project number 2: Western Hills Baby blanket. 



When we went on holidays in early March I was itching to take a relaxing knitting project with me, and I did have that beautiful wool I dyed with madder just sitting there and a crafty friend suggested a scarf, that also happens to be by Julia Stanfield (did I mention that her patterns are fantastic?!)
Project number 3: Fernleaf Scarf

So these will keep me very busy knitting over the next few weeks (months?!) but i have been thinking how much I'd like to knit a cardigan just for me, at least, it wouldn't hurt to pop over to Ravelry and browse some more patterns.....

Kelly,

I understand why you were tempted to break your rule! I wonder which project will be the first to be finished.

I can never just have ONE project happening. I am always looking for something more exciting to knit hahaha

I wouldn't mind trying that scarf you are knitting but Kitchener is new to me and puts me off hehehhee

You remind me that I need to update my own blog desperately ! it's been a long time o_0

Ama, I was wondering what was happening with your blog :)
Don't be put off by kitchener stitch - I haven't actually reached that part yet but I'm not worried.

I seem to be frequently breaking that rule at the moment. I used to just have two projects, one complicated and one simple. Then I added a crochet project. And now I'm barely resisting casting on all the things I've ever wanted to knit right now >.<

Your projects look lovely, looking forward to seeing how they develop
