Can't type for very long; must continue knitting

I have been a friggin' prolific knitter lately. My boyfriend is coming over from England in a week (Eeeeee!), so I've been knitting projects like so: "Hm, I wonder if I can finish this before Lewis comes over."

You can see my achievements on my Ravelry page.

First, it was the skirt. That gorgeous, gorgeous skirt. It took me just over 2 months to complete. Finished June 15.

Then, it was the sweater. I dyed up two skeins of Paton's Classic Wool for a vintage pattern, named the "Three-hour sweater". It took me 11 hours to knit plus time to seam and block, but I finished it on June 12.

Then, it was the socks. I am extremely prone to second sock syndrome, and I had one pair that I had started around the end of April. I cast on the second sock somewhere around the first week of June or something. I expected these to hold me over until Lewis arrived on the 28th, but I finished the pair on June 17.

Then (!), it was the tank top. I just finished this one this evening, it's upstairs blocking right now. The pattern is Lelah; I had gotten the yarn for it and cast on in February, overestimated the size and then frogged it. I cast on again two days ago. Something is obviously wrong with me, I am knitting way too quickly.

Tonight I've cast on for Ysolda's lovely little patter the Cloud Bolero, completely spur-of-the-moment, out of some stash. I have two skeins of that Noro-esque Debbie Mumm yarn from JoAnn's, and I have some various other orange and yellow yarns that I'll stripe once I run out of the Debbie Mumm. Should be cute, I hope. We'll see, yeah?

Until next time.
