A bad case of startitis

Startitis is a recognised condition in knitters (and other people like that) who start loads of projects all at once. I had some vouchers for Christmas and I am really itching to make a nice brown cardi with some wool that has been out of stock since the middle of December so instead this week I have started a crocheted goblin, started a different jumper that isn’t a brown cardi, finished a goblin and I still have two pairs of socks on the needles from about October.

Here is the goblin. The pattern says his name is George and normally I like thinking of my own names for things but he does look like a George to me. He is going to play merry havoc with my obsessively alphabetical books when I am not looking. I really like his belly button and his curly ears. What a strange thing to say…

The jumper is a top down one (top down jumpers are great because you can try them on as you go.) called Kjerstin (which is a free pattern).

And here are the socks looking thoroughly unfinished:

I’m supposed to be sanding the skirting boards, can you tell?
