I feel like I haven't updated in a while, although there is still knitting going on! I finished another Ishbel for my mom the other day, and I have a couple scarflets laying around that still need to be photographed. I even forgot to post one of them on Ravelry, which is unheard of for me! :-O

In the meantime, look at what I started two nights ago...

I really wanted to make my Dad solid-colored, fingerless gloves, but I couldn't find enough random (read: not earmarked for sweaters/shawls) manly-colored wool lying around, hence the stripes. I really hope I don't run out of yarn. In a "doh!" type of moment, I realized that I might not have enough brown yarn to do the cuff ribbing for the second glove. Most likely, I will have to supplement with some black and pray it will be taken for a "design element". Knowing my Dad, he probably won't mind since he wears everything I make him. :-D I'm procrastinating pretty badly on the Gathered Pullover 2. :-( I've reached the part where I need to short row the shoulders, and I guess I'm too lazy to pull out my previous notes and get it over with. It makes me a bit sad that I am not knitting and producing FOs as quickly as I used to be. Perhaps, all this shawl knitting has slowed my pace down?
