Today I went delving into the stash room and resurrected a couple of old projects. Poinsettia has been on the needles since November 2010 according to my project page. The other two never even got project pages, so I don't know how old they are. Clapotis is something that I resisted for a long time because everybody was doing it. But I picked up a skein of sock yarn with cashmere (I've long since lost the ball band) and thought it would work. The third project is another Pretty Thing. The first one was made of cashmere and this one is made from some of my own handspun. Neither made it onto Ravelry, so again I have no record of the details.
I'm telling myself that it is just like starting a new project since it has been so long since I touched any of these. And there's the added benefit that they won't take long to finish since I was quite a bit into them when I put them down.

On my quest I also started Vivian, but the way the pattern is written is hard for me to follow, so this is currently tucked away waiting for a time when I can sit and sort it all out. I would really love to have and wear this one, but the knitting of it may do me in. I have also started a Featherweight Cardigan, but haven't made much progress yet. I recently found out that some friends are expecting a baby in March and I've gotten a little side-tracked with the knitting on Itty Bitty Things! I have a couple more sweaters that I have the yarn for and would like to get started before the end of this year. Starting Strata Sphere and the Burdock Cardigan this year fall right into my plan for next year...

I knit all the pieces, but once seamed, it didn't fit. As an extra bonus it looked like crap on me. This is the perfect project to boss around. I've started taking out the seams in order to rip this bad boy out, reclaim the lovely yarn and knit this sucker into a sweater that doesn't suck! Wish me luck.
