The Thing Finished! but other knitting stalled

Casted off The Thing and weaved in all the ends. Haven't blocked it yet; I want to try over dye it, just to see how it might look.

De Colores body strips are all joined, but I find myself dragging my feet (well, hands, maybe) joining the sleeves to the body. Last night I sat through an entire episode of Desperate Housewives and news, with the sweater in my lap, and didn't knit one stitch. Although the joining is a three needle bind off, it's just not as interesting as knitting. Or is it the end of project hesitation? This is my "big" project which I only work on one at a time, I'm not sure what I want to do next.

My first pair of toe up socks, originally planned for Henry and now it's going to CIC. Done with the foot and ready to divide for heel flap.

I've knitted many pairs of socks the "regular" way; this is my first time to do a toe up and my brains are having trouble turning the 3-D picture upside down. Socks are my travel projects since I rarely need to thinking about what my hands are doing. Now you mean I have to focus? Until this is a chance to sit quietly and figure out the heel flap, the sock will remain stuck.

Hi Vivian

I came back to your blog because it came up, high up the list, when I typed in my own name!

I couldn't find your email address or I would have written privately.

I was trying to work out whether you are a member of my Woolly Thoughts group or whether I'd even sent you an invite. Some people use different IDs in different places so it's hard to check.

Anyway, if you are not already a member, please come and join us

BTW I love those multi-coloured strips.

So what did the THING finally become? A pug blanket? A dashboard cover? A window shade? Just curious.
