I have enjoyed the knitting a lot during the past few days and I think it is because I have more than one thing on the needles now. This seems to fit my mood at the moment. Yesterday most of my knitting time I was working on the green cotton but then my hands started to ache, they do sometimes when I knit cotton, so I switched to the soft Lanett.
So here follow ups...
I do love this Birch pattern.
And something else again. I cast on for the scarf Interlocking Balloons by Shirley Paden from the book scarfSTYLE by Interweave Press. I realize this might not be the perfect yarn for the scarf, I'm afraid the pattern isn't going to be very visible but I decided to settle with this after auditioning few others mainly because this is soft and I have two skeins which should be enough and sometimes I need to make use of the stash.
The Green Rogue, the Green Pivocoli and this new scarf belong to the same family.But there is probably going to be one more member. A Felted Bag made of these three skeins of Satakieli. I haven't swatched yet so I don't know if Satakieli felts nicely and I need to test that first.
If that bag is going to happen and when I have it on the needles, then I think it would be wise to settle down and finish one thing before I go hunting again.
Oh, forgot the Olympics. That will be number five on the needles. But really, this is so enjoyable at the moment, that I have decided not to take seriously this UFO warning that keeps echoing around...
