I’m either a big winner or a big LOSER over here with this pile of FINISHING that needs to be done…

In an embarrassment of riches, I find myself with a double load of sweater pieces begging to be seamed and banded.

EGADS! When did this train wreck happen! I was all in a frenzy to finish my Winter Projects and something might happen that has NEVER happened before. They might all GET DONE!

UPSIDE: now I can roust in all the Spring Pattern books that are insinuating their way into my hut. New IK. New Knitters (!). Rowan on the way (UK). WOOT!

DOWNSIDE: miles and miles of mattress stitch and buttonbands. OUuufffff…

And I can’t take it on the bus either, so THAT MEANS I get to be a dirty rotten cheater and start something else just so my fingers don’t get out of practice during Rush Hour. Knitting is my tranquilizer; my post-work Cocktail of sorts. Take it out of my Commuter Equation and it is NOT a pretty sight! It’s usually not much of a pretty sight even when I can reach for the knitting!

What could I possibly knit! Why something that might be left over from Spring LAST YEAR!!! Resurrection Hallelujah!
