baby did a bad, bad thing.

I have kind of "prided" myself on typically not starting a new project before finishing another - even if it is just one sock (like that lone Pomatomus awaiting a mate...). I do have some unfinished stuff, but usually I just decide, "meh, don't like it" and when I grow tired or uncertain it may "marinate". Unfinished cast off sounds so dirty.

This weekend my pride is of no apparent relevance - I have three projects going at once - egads. First, my second Campfire Sock is on the needles. Next, I have my Clapotis about 1/2 done - realizing of course it will not be useful until fall. So really, no hurry there right?

And today I cast on my third project - the Fitted Tank by Blue Sky Alpacas in pickle green. Omigosh, I could not help myself. I ordered the tank kit from kpixie and could not leave it alone. I am already plotting a skirt to go with.

So three projects! I plan to frog something in honor of my triple play - kind of a deal with the Knitting Bandit. I have a Grape Ape Jaywalker past the heel - and the heel seems, well, baggy. I think the size 2 needles I have used are really more like a 2 1/2 - is there such a thing? So anyways, the Jay has to go - I cannot waste Yarntini on a sock I may never finish, right?! So to the pond with you!

Photo proof to follow!

I love that Blue Sky Alpaca Tank. And the green is perfect for summer.

Starting new things is fine. Just make sure you go back to the old when you get a chance.

I have the same multiple projects guilt - at least you've got 3 beautiful things to knit, right? Embrace the loveliness!

You're knitting along on all of those projects awfully quickly, so you won't have to feel guilty for long! The Clapotis is looking gorgeous; I may have to break down and finally make one.

Love the green tank. Did you say you got the kit from kpixie? Cause I didn't see it there. I think I need to see a better picture of that pattern. It looks cute.

And I was just listening to Chris Isaak today so the post title made me laugh.

I guess since you've been such a "bad, bad " baby I'll have to call the whole thing off. If only you hadn't cast on that last project, I would've joined you in the frog pond.

Okay, I can't stay mad at you or blame you for my cold feet. Not when you have such good taste. I love that green! It's perfect for that pattern.

3? And guilt... that's a bit cute ;) I have 3 in my purse right now! And I'm actually going to casting on a Clapotis in the near future.

Blame Ravelry. I love Jess, but this stuff is evil.

Thank you for being an incredible secret pal! I'm so glad to have another knit buddy. :D
