Then I have to finish those darn argyles! The duplicate stitch is going to take forever. Maybe if I just do a few stitches a day, I can lick this thing. Next time, I'm just going to do intarsia for the lines, or not knit a black background! Meg said she wanted a pair of argyles after I finished these. Well, maybe after I have these done for awhile I will give them another go.
Lucy Neatby's Fiesta Feet is going to be fun. I have one of the garter cuff bands done for that, and I will work on the second once I finish the Vine Lace Socks. These should be a lot of fun, as I decided to use up a whole bunch of different variegated scrap yarns for the contrasting color. I like Lucy's approach, generally, as she seems to be fairly practical and willing to break the "rules" of sock knitting.
The Cabled and Bobbled Hat has been looming over my head ever since I started doing socks. It would be really swell if I got that completed. I think after this project I'll leave the cabling to Meg and stick with color as my medium of expression. Cables are just too fussy!
Then, of course, the vest. This will be a lot of fun, though it's certainly a long term project. I'm about halfway up the ribbing on the bottom. It's 2x2 ribbing, but since I've been doing the purl stitches with the opposing color, it's not nearly as stretchy as one might expect. I'm hoping that it will still be wide enough. In the worst case scenario, I just knit the button bands slightly wider when I'm done. 3500 stitches down, an innumerable number to go!
