So far since I last posted I’ve been knitting on:

My sampler afghan…

My sampler scarf…

and a watermelon dress.

It might seem like a lot, but seeing as how two of them are ‘samplers,’ that means I do a sampling of ‘this’ for a little bit, then a sampling of ‘that’ for a bit, which is nice cuz then I don’t get too bored with it.  Though I have to admit the dress is already boring and I’m only about an inch into it.  As you can see by the picture, it’s all stockinette stitch, which is lovely in a brainless-I-can-watch-tv-and-knit kind of way, but is also a little hard on the hands because I don’t take as many breaks.  But it’s a shop model (‘natch), so I need to get it done.

The scarf is a pain in the ass harder, so it takes longer cuz I have to go so slow.

And the afghan?  Well, that’s gonna take all summer, I think.  And honestly, I only have probably three more squares to go (out of 20!).  But then it’s stitching them all together, and THEN adding the border all the way around.  Yeah.  Hopefully when the cold weather returns (if it ever leaves) it’ll be done.
