I'm joining in Ginny's Yarn Along this week.
Do you ever get the feeling that you're just not finishing anything? That none of your WIPs have grown much? That you seem to be knitting the same stitches over and over again?

I'm still working on two WIPs KALs (wow, I'm like a secret agent or something). When I saw Truly Myrtle's completed Oaklet Shawl and Sezza Knits' Oaklet-in-progress, I gave myself a little push to get a few more rows done on this very sweet pattern. But then I got stalled again and have to admit that it has barely grown.
My Amari has progressed, but it's kind of taking a nap right now, too, in spite of my complete envy of my KAL partners Erin, Penny, Lisa, and Sandra. Erin has finished hers (waiting to be blocked, I believe); Penny taunts me with her third one on the needles; Lisa, who has never knitted a shawl before has outpaced me; and Sandra has both finished and blocked hers. There are other Amari KAL knitters whose shawls are humming along beautifully, and I love seeing everyone's progress.
In my defense, I have been test knitting a pattern for a wonderful designer (it's finished but I can't talk about it yet), and I'm working on a new hat pattern which I'm super excited about. But no more excuses ... I've got to get these babies off the needles soon or I won't be able to show my face in any other KALs!
As for books, I'm still reading Commencement and enjoying it. Wait a minute, sounds like not much has changed over the last couple of weeks: same book, same projects. Is it Groundhog Day?
