So much knitting, so little time...

Eep! I'm such a bad blogger. (And I start off so many posts with that self-recrimination!)

Since moving for my MA, I've only gotten some new yarns, and I have to admit that I've started way too many projects.

What I currently have going on...
- Eris by Girl from Auntie, worked in WotA from KnitPicks in Claret Heather (more Aubergine than Wine, but that's okay.)
- Rogue by Girl from Auntie, worked in Cascade 220 Superwash in Truffle Brown (posted below). All that's left on this one is the sleeves, but I just can't get off my ass to make it go yet.
- Another Sahara in Pegasus from Elann.com in Cream. The body is done, I'm just not quite up for making the sleeves. I think I'll do up the collar next.
- Diamond Fantasy Shawl by Sivia Harding Knit Design, worked in JaggerSpun Zephyr in Ruby. I need a shawl for some of the classrooms I'm in - they're cold! Plus, I think the shawl will be small enough to put in a ziplock bag and keep in my backpack.

I also picked up some yummy Noni Designs that should be arriving in the next two weeks.

The flower bags (Cherry Blossom and Fuchsia) will turn into random carry-with bags. I'm not really a purse person, but they're just too damned neat not to make.

Adventure Bags will probably turn into travel purses.

The Green Earth Grocery Bag will probably be a "make as I can" project. I'd really like to go to the store and never have to use a plastic bag again.

And finally, the Medallion Travel Bag will turn into my car-bag that keeps things good for car-emergencies. Long-storage food, blanket, random paperback, notepad, spare jacket, etc. I'm thinking about doing the white section in Patons SWS (probably Geranium) and the black in Patons SWS Coal.

Either that or do it in a red and black color scheme.

So, basically, I have tons of knitting and sometimes not enough time to do it.

Love the bag patterns you picked, though I would probably only carry the gracery bag. lol

I have been wanting to make one of those adventure bags for quite a while... I have the pattern and evrything! I love the cherry blossom bag, too but that just seems like a lot of work making all those little flowers
