Knitting the Queue Update

Gah--feeling really stressed about time and $.

The queue is progressing. I have decided to let go of 2 projects (the cashmere and the sontag) but still haven't reached the point of ripping them off the needles.

In other words, they still count.

The queue contains the following:
  • a pale pink cashmere cowl (to be ripped)
  • a black sontag (to be ripped)
  • a Mardi-Gras shrug (this one has been on a long hiatus since November at least, but my own LYS just started carrying this yarn, and since I can now wear it to work, I'm more motivated to finish. In theory. In reality, I still haven't touched it since November.)
  • a mini notions bag out of a freebie ball Rowan denim (to go in my Rowan denim project bag)
  • a second sock out of Dyeabolical

Dang it, I forgot about two other projects on the pins. Apparently at some point I decided the cashmere and the sontag didn't count after all. I suck at this knitting the queue thing.

  • a super-secret project for a Mardi Gras swap (90% done)
  • test-knitting an amazing glove for Jamie. It is adorable and I can't wait until she comes out with the pattern.

To get to this point, I at least finished black and grey undersleeves

and took a few days to knit up this.

How long are your sleeves? I'm working on a pair. I'm playing with the Peterson's 1859 pattern, using a fingering.

I don't know the exact measurement, but mine fit great, and stay up pretty well. I have a bunch of others posted on Ravelry.
