Rainy Saturday

It's been raining all week in Atlanta, and cooler, getting down into the 70s F. I've been wearing my Hermia sweater, so that's nice.

I also have startitis. Here's a rundown on my WIPs:
1. Chunky sweater, top down, in the round. It's blocking right now, to make it easier for me to pick up and knit the buttonband shawl collar. However, given how humid it is, the drying is going very slowly.
2. Portable scarf project.
3. Mohair shawl that I've been working off and on for years.
4. Husband's afghan from last year. I only need to knit on the last stripe.

However, I don't want to work on any of these. I want to start a new project. Another sweater for me. Something cropped. Possibilities include the Sunrise Circle Jacket or something from Fitted Knits.

A rainy afternoon is perfect for browsing through my magazines, books, Ravelry, and many, many free patterns I've printed off the net. This will be fun.
ETA: I've decided to make the Sunrise Circle Jacket by Kate Gilbert, using some Cascade 220 Heathers in Ruby. I've read that it's a pretty fast and easy knit and really clever construction. It's been on my mind for a while and now it's time.

I know what you mean about starting things. I've got a real strong desire to start another shawl.
