Feel Good Knitting

I've simply got too many projects on the needles for my liking so I'm focusing on finishing my MS4 stole. Nothing exciting to photograph since the first side looks the same as this one. I just started Clue 3 on the second side and it's flying off my needles. I love knitting lace.

My trick for concentrating without going crazy has been listing to Brenda Dayne's Cast On podcast. She mixes up knitting talk with great music and it's thoroughly entertaining. I started from the beginning so I think I'm at around episode 37. Eventually I'll catch up and be disappointed that I can't hear a new episode whenever I feel like it.

To make sure I'm not getting bored I'm mixing it up with a few charity projects. I've started another set of rectangles for the HAP project and I'm diving in head first with a new round of Northeast Oddball Baby Blankets with my peeps on Knitting Help. I haven't done much charity work lately and it's just feels good. My MS4 doesn't know it's purpose yet but I balance that out with the charity projects.

[Oh - I uncovered an entire stash of charity yarn that I forgot about. That makes my charity knitting "recession proof" since I won't have to buy any yarn for a long time to participate!]
