Cast on?

Finished up knitting the clessidras last night. Finished grafting and weaving in ends this morning. They need a wash but they are done. Will try to get better pictures tomorrow. Had planned to try today but things got in the way. This is proof that I really am finished with them.

For a quick knit I made some baby booties and a hat today.

I can't decide what to cast on for next. I have Rogue on the needles. I'm about 65-70% finished with it. I have some baby knitting I need to get going on. And then there are of course tons of socks on my "to knit" list. So what to cast on for next? That is the question. Should I start some socks for Justin, for Nathan, myself... the baby sweater for Justin's cousin, the baby blanket, another BSJ..... the list really is endless. The yarn really is upstairs. But to decide seems so daunting right now.

clessidra progress

Been working on the clessidra's after a bit of a break. Had to stop to get some baby knits and some mittens out of the way. I have more baby knits I need to get done but I also want to finish these up since they were started forever ago. I've finished the calf shapping and am now working on the ankle shaping. After that they should finish up rather quickly (i mean it doesn't take long to knit a foot). I have real progress on them now considering it was only a week or ago that they only had a couple inches.

Just thought I'd update on progress. Will try to post finished pictures soon. Then I'm off to knit a baby sweater and finish Rogue (which I'm working on the hood. so only a hood and two sleeves to go and I'm done. would have already been finished with that one too except baby knits are getting in the way. well that and i messed up and had to frog back some. having to frog part of what you thought was finished tends to slow you down a bit. you lose motivation because lets face it frogging just isn't fun). But if I do keep up my progress on it I might finish mine before Amie. Hear that Amie perhaps I really did catch up to you and its like we knit them together. hehe
