What I am knitting this week

Well, at least some of what I am working on anyway... I am still working on several different gift knitting projects, I actually do a lot of that. However, one of the gifts isn't really the color I want it to be, so I am not really feeling the love for it right now, but it is good practice. I am hoping I might find the proper color tomorrow on our road trip. I have also made a couple of dishcloths this week (big surprise); those just come in handy as something to knit that don't require a lot of thinking, do provide instant gratification, and are easy to transport. Unlike long, multicolored, resurrected knitting for the Easter season....
I have a sock that is almost ready to have the heel flap started, and I have two more pairs to start. One pair is a gift and the other pair is for Hubband. My sock might get put on hold for a week or so....
I am not working on any hats right now, mostly just 'cause I needed a bit of a break from them, not because of hat season being over or anything (big time snow storm in tomorrow night's forecast for the big city to the north of us).
So in short, I don't really knit according to the calender or the weather, I pretty much knit what feeds my soul. That really is why I knit after all; I love the process of watching it grow and how the pattern/colors interact and play with each other. The product is a nice thing in the end, but not as cool as watching the process.

I love the process, but I also love the finished object. Maybe that's why I like small things like socks. :-)
