I’ve always been of the mind that for me, monogamy was/is/forever will be the way to go. No question. No monogamy=no integrity
But project monogamy? Well, there you may well see my capricious side at its undone best er, worst, I mean.
Here, I feel a sin coming on. Seriously, how could I possibly ignore a smushy, softy, merino-y cake of yarn, brilliantly colored by Madame Tina Newton of Blue Moon Fiber Arts fame named “Crabby McHappyPants?” Seriously. Just take a look:
This delightful colorway, along with another 2 scrumdillyicious colors I’ve been lusting after since my last Stitches West safari ran out of funding–“Rooster Rock” and Lettuce Knit”–arrived on my doorstep last week when this feverish knitter really needed a pick-me-up. Fueled by the discovery of a few new (free Rav and Knitty) patterns, and the lovely book by Wendy D. Johnson, “Socks from the Toe-up,” I find my willpower vanquished yet again.
Find this lovely book here http://www.amazon.com/Socks-Toe-Up-Essential-Techniques/dp/0307449440
Even though I tried and didn’t love making a pair this way, this book has me rethinking the idea…
Well, at least I’m nearly finished with my February Girlie Sweater. Just 10 pattern repeats and 14 rounds of garter stitch to go.
And being very nearly monogamous on this project has helped me finish it sooner. No question. This was pointed out to me by my darling cuz just a few days ago. She always makes such good sense to me.
So perhaps I’ll finish my Composed mitts and Dancing Poppies Scarf, and CR sweater before casting on anything else…
We shall see.
Speaking of endings…this is the last post for the earring contest.
Today at 12 midnight (Pacific Time, givin’ you guys who live east of me even a little more time) I close the books. It’s a close race. Neck in neck, or perhaps, ear in ear.
