Signing In

Hi, I'm Jess, and I blog here, although not nearly as frequently as I used to.

I usually have several projects going at once - sometimes they just need to sit in time out for a few weeks before I'm ready to work on them again - but I've got way more than usual right now. So I'm looking forward to getting some things done.

Here's a quick list:

Things I Want To Finish

- Sunrise Circle Jacket (just don't feel like it)

- Improvisational Cardi (my own design - having some fit problems)

- Rising Flames socks (having some fit problems)

- Retro Throw blanket (just slow going)

- Serrano (pulled the needles for another project and just never picked it up again)

Things I May Want to Rip Out or Adjust

- Juno Regina (too narrow)

- Synopated Brioche Hat (my own design - don't like the decreases, and should be deeper)

- Hopeful (needs to be longer in the waist, and may make it long-sleeved)

- Blissful Jacket (blocked & seamed, just needs sewn-in stripes & collar adjustment)

Things on Long-Term Hold
(i.e., that I might decide not to finish after all)

- Rebecca #12 wrap with sleeves (not sure I love the pattern anymore - will probably frog and make something else)

- Hush Hush Chemise (do I really want a knitted nightgown?)
