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.....

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

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

I have a rigid heddle loom, why would I consider buying a floor loom?

I was asked this question in one of my Facebook groups. I started to type a response, then decided it would be better answered in a blog po...
