I made good progress on the finishing (one neckband, two side seams, two arm bands...all that remained was weaving in ends and blocking) before the Mix party - I even bought the magazine and copied the pattern. And then I went to the party. which included a trunk show. And all those best-made plans were...derailed.
Oh yeah. That Bokeh Tank is still in my queue, but it's behind three other projects - none of which were even on my radar before Friday afternoon! Here's what jumped in front of the Bokeh Tank.
I cast-on Sunday, is Coco Knits' Anna. If you're counting, yes, this is my third project in Shibui Heichi's Caffeine and yes, that is what I used to knit Tsubasa. Turns out I had an extra skein and Anna only calls for five...buying just four skeins to make a sweater - which everyone told me looked great - and which will be a perfect traveling piece next month...well it was a no brainer.

I did get Tsubasa done. It took three days to dry, but this morning I trimmed all the ends and hung it on Madeline for a few quick photos. I'm going to Stitches South on Thursday and if I'm lucky, I'll even get a modeled photo or two! (and no, I am not going to buy any yarn.)
What was the last pattern or yarn or anything else that derailed your knitting plans?
