Wow... I just realized how much stuff I'm really working on all at once, which is ironic because the craziness of the school year gives me almost no time to just knit. I also realized how much stuff I'm working on that the blog has never seen. So I decided to make this post a visual tour of all my progressions. Sorry, but no FO's--I'm too A.D.D. for them.
This shall be very picture heavy.

This is my elephant sweater. Now that it's fall I finally have incentive to work on it again: firstly because I need more warm clothes, secondly because the colors are yummmm for October.
Oh yeah, and I figured out magic loop for the sleeve; it truly is magic! Haha.

This sweater has been in progress quite literally for months. It didn't take me all that long to get to where it is now, but at the beginning of the summer I ran out of brown yarn. That's right, I ran out of yarn just a couple of inches away from the end. Rawr! And I've been too lazy to go get more, so there it has sat. I'm sure once I finish it I'll wear it all the time, though. I do love the colors.

I presently can't find the baby sweater I'm working on, (poo. messy room.) but here's the sleeve. I'm actually going to frog this sleeve, though, because it looks dumb next to the rest of the sweater. Sorry I don't have a pic of the whole thing, but this at least gives you an idea of the color.

This is my first toe-up sock. I really can't stand it. The toe is too short, the foot is too long, and the ankle is too tight. And it has those annoying holes on the corner of the heel. Socks are not my strong point because there are too many ways they can go wrong. Rawr.

This is the beloved skirt I'm working on! Sorry it looks so funny. It's really white, but my camera batteries were about to die when I took this. Also, it's not going to be funny-shaped like it looks. It's being knit top-down and my circular needles are shorter than the actual circumference, making it difficult to try on. :-P

And finally, I had the brilliant idea to knit a painfully bright, long winter coat. I began to carry that idea out while reading Rappaccini's Daughter. From now on, knitting this will remind me of the story. Does that ever happen to you when you knit and read/watch TV? Anyway, this picture butchered the colors horribly; they're actually very bright and rich.

Haha, that was so much. It's funny, really, how many things I have going on all at once. But it's also exciting to think about perhaps finishing one of them someday. XD
