What's on the needles?

Not so long ago, I was a one project kind of knitter. However, I have matured as a knitter (especially since I have a lot of HAVE to knits), so here's a quick rundown of what's on my needles:

Wrong side - washcloth

The obligatory gift knit... look at that delicious scrubby texture... just as soon as I knit these up, I'm making one for myself... (pattern: Dimple Washcloth)
Another gift knit - these are office mitts for my admin team. (Pattern: Rannoch). I'm using WoolEase and I can definitely feel the acrylic... its rather sticky on my bamboo dpns and not so much fun... the pattern is knitting up nicely though, at least.
Here's the second monkey sock. Its my reward knit. I can't wait to wear these socks, especially since it just got cool again :)
Bum shrug

And last, but definitely not least, is my own design creation - I call it the Bum Shrug. I'm attempting to address the shortcomings that I've encountered in other soaker/shortie/longie patterns, plus I want something that I can cable. Yeah ribbing! I've already had to rip back about half of it because I wasn't happy with the shaping, but I'm now on to the first leg. I think this one will have its own dedicated post soon.

There's your update... I'm off to make sure the Little Bit hasn't tossed off her covers. If you're traveling today, be safe!

That's a nice array. What I like about multiple projects is variety - there's always something different for every available knitting opportunity.

It's really neat to see someone else working my pattern! I'm not on Ravelry yet, still awaiting an invitation, but thanks for posting it for me! Happy belated Thanksgiving!
