The Danger Zone

And I am not referring to the movie Top Gun.  As mentioned in a previous post, I cast on for my next project without finishing my current project (Cables and Lace Hoodie).  Even though it was supposed to be a wee little break, I am afraid the break has turned into something much longer.  I have officially entered 'The Danger Zone' of unfinished projects.

Here is a photo from the Patons website of the Cable Dress:

Now, picture this...tunic length with a taller (about 5 inches) ribbing on the bottom.  Also, don't forget that I am using Patons Angora Bamboo in color Flax instead of Classic Wool, what the pattern suggests.  Isn't it going to be lovely?!    The bottom ribbing has been very relaxing to knit up.  Since I want a tighter stitch, I am doing a twisted rib stitch (knit into the back loop of all knitted stitches) instead of the standard K2, P2 combo.

Here is a little sneak peak:

OK, so now that I have had a taste, the only way to get out of 'The Danger Zone' of unfinished projects is to PUT THE NEW PROJECT DOWN.  It was fun while it lasted, but now I must seam up the Cables and Lace Hoodie.

Happy New Year!!
