I've been jonesing for a finished object. The shawl kind of counts, but I haven't figured out where I'm going to block it without any chance of the dog chewing on it. So, over the weekend, instead of working on Mystery Wedding Project, I knocked out this baby:
The Mason-Dixon washcloth from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. I have some of this Pachuko brand organic cotton yarn that I bought three years ago when I was in TN for the summer with no LYS and lots of (read: way too much) time to troll e-Bay. The yarn is OK, nice and soft, but not quite plied as tightly as I'd like. But totally good enough for a dishcloth. And I'm making progress towards not being such a perfectionist (i.e. crazy person); I made a mistake and left it in (after starting to go back and fix it and thinking, 'What are you doing? It's a flipping washcloth'). Baby steps, baby steps.
