I've put the shrug aside for a bit since its getting to big to knit at work. In the mean time, since I need to knit to stay sane, I have finished one dishcloth and started another. The first was Lizard Ridge, a pattern I found on Ravelry of course and the second is Vineyard, also a Ravelry find. Vineyard is also in French which threw me off at first because those directions are listed first on the pattern. I am finding that pattern a bit tricky, mostly because I didn't read all the way through the pattern before I started... The pattern itself is a 16 row repeat so that is on my pile and not in my work bag. So I am also working on a baby hat. An exorbitant amount of people are preggers at work so I'm trying to get a head start on my signature gift, or at least its going to be my signature gift at this rate. This has got to be the most projects I've ever had on needles at once and I defiantly find it disconcerting. Lets count for fun: 1)The Homespun shrug I plan to frog, 2)The hubbies scarf he wont wear anyway so why bother, 3) The Knitch shrug I am undecided on, I like the pattern not the yarn, 4)Noro Striped Scarf, yarn is on back order, so not my fault, 5)Vineyard Dishcloth, 6)Baby Hat. My goodness and that's not counting the half done ball-band dishcloth that's on a holder because I ran out of cotton. I still have no more yellow cotton to finish that one with. The short version of that story is that its Wal-Marts fault. Then there are the baby thumless mittens that are only a few rows complete. I thought maybe I should do those in the round instead of seam, I guess I'm still thinking. Wow, I hate hate not completing projects.... hmmm. Guess I have some unfinished business de-stashing to do.
That's the Lizard Ridge dishcloth, with Peaches and Cream in Winterberry.

That's a close up of the shrug, see why Dune is so appealing? I think I'm going to block this one, see if it makes a difference.
Last but not least the Noro scarf. I fall in love with it more every time I see it. The wide array of colors are what get me. Basically there is a different color for every one of my moods. (Depending on who you ask that means a different shade of miserable for every moment.) I like it and want to finish it badly.
