Starting over again, naturally

So I've picked up the Silken Scabbard out of the WIP pile. Actually, I'm not really picking it up out of the WIP pile -- I'm casting on for it again. Even though I have this much done already:


Am I the only person who does this -- puts down a project, only to pick it up later and not know where I am in the pattern, and, rather than use a little brain power to try to figure it out, I just say, oh well, I'll just start over. I must have too much time on my hands since I'm knitting and reknitting things, right? Oh, so wrong.

I decided to try this one again because I've been craving working with a shiny, silky, scrunchy yarn after using the Malabrigo for the Vine Yoke Cardi. I need some sproing, dang it.

Speaking of sproing, I got my Dream in Color Classy yesterday and need to swatch for the Mondo Cable Cardi. Oh my is this yarn soft and sproingy. And the color -- Cloud Jungle is heavenly. Amazing how many different colors are in there, yet they combine to give a very muted look. Love it.
