What's on my needles

The stitch markers are handmade and owly. Yes!
According to my Ravelry projects page, I have eight current works-in-progress. That's bad enough, but it gets worse when you factor in the fact that a) not everything I've got going is on Ravelry, and b) that's just the knitting and crochet. Not the embroidery, the cross stitch, the sewing, the mosaic plant stand...

I've heard this referred to as "startitis," but whatever you want to call it, I've got it bad. I've got projects in "progress" from this time last year, and we won't talk about the wedding afghan for the couple who got married in October.

That said, I've been working on this scarf/shawlette pretty steadily since I started it a week ago. It's the very popular Age of Brass & Steam by Orange Flower in Patons Silk Bamboo yarn. (The yarn is nice, but not as magical as I'd hoped. It's quite soft, though, and has a lovely sheen, and I think it'll be very nice draped around my neck.)

I have been on a major triangle scarf kick lately--I finished a different one (striped, cotton blend) immediately before starting this one, and I've got a couple other scarves on the go as well. All that stockinette makes it great TV knitting, so I had an excellent time on Sunday working on this and rewatching both seasons of Sherlock. (Come soon, season three. Sooooooooooooon.)
