I could get a lot of knitting done in 5 days.
I've finished my lace socks and I'm putting the armbands onto the Rose Leaf Vest, which means that I don't have any real projects on the needles. Oh, there's some other stuff that is aging, but no active project.
And I was thinking "What should I knit?" I was thinking about the Western Fair and how it should be technical and creative... And then I finally woke up to what I was doing.
SHOULD knit?! What the heck is with this sh*t! No wonder I wasn't feeling the love. So now I'm just letting my thoughts drift. I've got a pretty cool stash (well, I like it anyway) and I'm going to just get funky with it. Which, really, isn't very funky since I'm something of a traditional knitter.
I'm ordering more sock yarn. I've finally found the exact shade of green to please my eldest son Luke who is 11, soon to be 12, and acts like 15. It's called "Anti Freeze" from Sundara Yarns:
I'm also getting "Fiery" since youngest son was watching. And I really don't need much of an excuse to buy yarn. Need I say that this breaks my pledge to "not buy yarn for a while". But I love the thought of my boy walking around with bright green feet.
