Knitty is evil...

Actually, it's not, but it did give me lots of inspiration. I actually have been knitting a little, despite the insane little kitten who likes to play with the yarn. I've actually started using that alpaca glitter than the wonderful Adrienne sent to me. I started a thin little lacy scarf, but I don't know if it looks the way I wanted. After seeing the new fall Knitty though, I'm debating if I'd rather make the Falling Leaves socks with it. Adrienne, do you think I'll have enough in that one skein you sent me to make a pair of socks? I also think that I'm gonna make Flora out of that pink mohair stuff that I never seem to be able to use up. I started a ribbed scarf long, long ago, but never finished it. Oh man...and Ella looks like fun too...

Oh man...and then there's still Jamie's slippers, and my Kyoto sweater that taking me YEARS to finish. But I'm making good progress on the Clapotis. Oh man...the Manos yarn is so nice when knitted up. I think they must use vinegar or some acid in the dying process though because it smells faintly of vinegar. But that's nothing a good washing won't solve when I'm all done.

So much knitting, so little time ^_^

Boy, thanks Cialis! I feel so validated now. Tee hee. =)

Hm, there sure are some fun designs this time around. At first pass, I like samus and josephine, and bloom looks super-duper fun (yup, just what I need, ANOTHER shawl pattern!). But again, so many knits, too little time!

I'm not actually sure you'd have enough yarn to do a pair of socks with the glitter alpaca, unless maybe you modified them to be ankle socks? I can't remember the yardage, but I seem to recall that it's about the same as a skein of Koigu (mmm, Koigu....).

I've got several posts bubbling inside of me, but I'm too lazy to take the required photos. Bad blogger am I....
