My name is Garngamen!

Well, "My name is Earl" is going here, and I also get into Karma-stuff. Not that I have a list. I only have a list of KNITTING projects. In Sweden we have a calander that hands out names on each day. So today is my name-day. No - it is NOT Garngamen! Celebrated with Penfolds Koounga Hill Shiraz and some Lindt 85% chocolate. Well back to the Knitting-list. I feel lousy about the KAL's I have joined. I hoped they would encourage me to get done. Instead they fill me with guilt. All these knittings are in trouble. I'm not super happy with the Tudor rose: 1. Catherine Parr. I´m thinking secretly about doing 2, Katherine in Rowan Harris DK Tweed but definitely need to stock up more yarn then, or just order Henry? I do not need more yarn. I just need to copy the pattern for myself, so I do not have to carry around the book, which I have in bubbly plastic (!). 3. The wonderful Twisted float cardigan is so big it cannot be moved. It means sofa time to finish its last sleeve. There has not been enough sofatime in my new job. And I doubt I will do anything more than work, eat and sleep next week. Big conference in Linköping! Wow!
And then, my last Dear Danish Hanne Falkenberg, in 4. Studio 9 and Da Capo (nr 5) that I have two kits. They are just in the wrong place. Need a smaller more carryable bag. and I was frogging, because one stich looked bad in my increase. So.
What am I knitting? Carrying around Julia's sleeves (6). Started on a new grey (7). My Green night silk sweater 8. My one thread patent (9) cardi..and my spinning exploration (10). My Fardhem SORK and homespun (11) and (12) my Ishager diagonal (13).
And, ny Noro (14) experiment in Shinano. My second Latvian mitten (15). Ok. That is the "closest" knitting project that I really have ONGOING. I need time!Anyway, the library got filled (a reward from winning best speaker), with knitting books. The fox and geese mittens was very american, and contained for me most old news. But, ok, some hints. Inspired Cabels was ok, but, gave me dejavue. I didnt get a book I have? Crazy. But "Best of Lopi" is a treasure. I'm in love. Got to knit a Islandic sweater very soon. And I must work on my Twinni Speede- (in IK called Nattetröjor) from Skåne, south Sweden. And Bohus. I luv Bohus. So much thoughts, so little time. I need to be weaned of the computer. I spend my time blogging instead of knitting. PS: Vadstena was cool. Especially the scrub-spa treatment I bought. Ahhh. Aloe Vera.

Ya. London is a plan! you can get tickets for the show on the website:
I relate to the "list" I am in the process of re-grouping. I also have the Best of Lopi I love it. I made one of them for the ex-BF and I am going to make Olaf for my son in alpaca.
the =Rowan tweed is on my list for mittens...
yes- too many yarn/fiber plans, not enough time.

Eller så kan man göra som jag och bli sjukskriven för utmattning. Nu har jag bara tid med mig själv ett tag framöver.... Fast det är ju inte att rekommendera....

Cirkeltröjan är ljuvlig:) Den kommer att bli super.
Och datorn tar verkligen alldeles för mycket tid, avvänjning är nog på sin plats.
Spa låter bra, hälsosamt och sköönt. Monica
