I officially have three quick-fix projects on the needles. Two of the fulfill Project Spectrum requirements too, so I am all too eager to get them done. They are:
1. The baby bolero from One Skein. Technically, all this needs is seaming. However, I discovered last night that I would rather put sleeves into a flat piece then sew up the sides and the sleeves all in one shot. SO, I am going to rip out the body and redo it in three pieces rather than one. I guess that makes it a cardigan instead of a bolero, but with luck, it will be done by the end of the week. I cast it on on Sunday. (It's green for PS.)
2. The Opera Scarf from Blue Sky Alpacas. I had been saving this as my mindless knitting for my therapy sessions once a week, but I want to get it done. It's also green!
3. Brown Bag from this winter's issue of Knitty. This may actually take longer than a week because I am dumb and didn't order enough yarn from Knit Picks. I am going to try and sub some stuff from my stash when I run out and see what happens! I cast this one last night.
I am so excited to be a part of this, but I have to say it's making one of my crocheting friends irritable. She insists that crochet is supposed to be faster and it makes her mad to see me finish a sleeve in an hour. I keep telling her the whole sleeve is only 5" long, but that doesn't seem to console her at all. *evil grin*
