Making Progress

It sure is nice to have a company phone. I lost my phone Wednesday. By Thursday morning I had a new one. The only thing missing is my personal phone numbers, but I'm working on that.

Jennie came over last night to hang out and knit. I got several more repeats done on Clappy. She's coming along nice and while I'm happy with it, I do wish I would have made it wider. I should have plenty of yarn left over to make a nice hat and possibly some mitts, though, so I can't complain ;-)
I went stash diving last night and found some good stuff. While I am finishing up my scarf I am seriously pondering my next project. It's not that I don't already have other projects on the needles (like an old sweater, a million socks....) but I need something new, something fresh. Shuffling through skeins of sock yarn, sweaters-worth of worsted yarns, even a long jacket's worth of some fingering yarn. I just don't know what direction to turn; I want to knit something I haven't before. Something complicated and easy. I don't want to knit a shawl (although looking at the Kauni I have in the stash makes me want to make a lacy wrap, but not right now. I'm just at a loss. I love knitting the basics: hats, scarves, mitts, sweaters, socks....but I want something different.
Perhaps I will do some spinning...
What are you knitting that's different?
