I am binding off on one of my Baruffa shawl (800 sts). Then I will be down to 9 shawls. Working hard on the other Baruffa Square shawl and can see the end in sight. Ten more rounds to go on that one and the unfinished shawl count will be at 8. Both of these are for my latest book. The photo shoot is in November. I have to finish the edging on the alpaca circular one for that shoot, too. It is a home project. I have 75 repeats of an edging to work on it. Not a project that can be taken with you. It past the portable stage and takes a bit more concentration that the others. But once I finish the Baruffas, I will start chipping away at it. I love progress!!!!!!!!!!! It feels so freeing. I may sit down and make a list of all my UFP's and start checking them off as they are completed. I am going to try so hard to not start anything else. Although, I do have to find yarn for a shrug for my book. That will become my LYS project on Tuesdays and the circular can be my home project. I am thinking a bamboo sock yarn that goes well with jeans for the shrug. But I cannot start it until both Baruffas are complete. Yes, I am holding a carrot in front of myself or giving myself an encouraging kick. Must go knit!!
