insert witty title here
well i am annoyed with blogger. this is take 2! and i had a saved draft and all.. but NO! stupid computers and their evilness.
as promised some WIPs. no, this is not all. i am suffering from acute startitis and hysterical take-on-too-much-alot. clearly i need help.. such as a bigger house with better storage space and unlimited cash.
Clapotis take 2: made skinny so i dont lose interest. very pretty yarn, cant wait to wear it though i rather suspect i will gift it out from under my own nose - i'm a bit like that.
Stealth sock the 3rd; cant help it, keep starting the little buggers. could be the enthusiasm with which they are received...
Liv's birthday socks... her birthday was 10th April people. but she knows i'm knitting them so i cant give up. they have been at the heel for, oh, a month now? i tell myself to keep it here as i have many sock-knitters-in-training who need to witness a heel being turned... but i see through myself. i'm sick of the yarn because i have knit with it before.
Lacey socks again: i'm allowed to show you as i have blocked the first one now and started the second so this counts as progress. excuse me while i flaunt.
Some handspun from yesterday: 'Solstice' i think. it is from the Tropical Twilight polwarth from the wool day. very nice. about 120 metres, goes well with midsummer nights dream. they may become a very glamorous (if that's possible) beanie for myself.
A sweater/jacket for my sherpa with some loverly Katia Kena from Taphophile. I'm going to pick up something similar for a constrast chest stripe so i dont run out of yarn. Thought i ought to cast on something nice and chunky to save my hands from tiny-sock cramps (you see how little excuses start to weave their way into everyday life?). and as per bloggers usual style, im not allowed to show you a picture... its very chunky, dark grey with flecks of other colours through it. subtle but not boring. just st st with a bit of 1x1 rib at the bottom. yup, excitement!
Am going to the woden SnB tonight with Irene and Othlon, so that shall be lovely. tis too long since i went to one and i havent seen the woden crowd previously. feel the need to be social. and i hope to resist the urge to start anything new before then, some of my german sock yarn is crying to me... calm down little sock stash! too many of your bothers have fallen!
ok, i had better be a good mummy and go cuddle the patonyle and break up the squabbles between the opal and the jawoll.
knit on and hopefully see a few of you this evening!

PS i AM reading all the blogs i usually do.. i'm just crummy at commenting at the moment :( but i am on track with everyone!
