Friends, I am sad to say that ennui has set in. I am hip deep in two deadline projects, and all I want to do is knit handspun socks, tiny baby hats, and every single thing that isn't one of the two currently on the needles. I am sure this is a temporary glitch, but I thought it might help to share some of my current obsessions with you in hopes that my recovery will be quicker in coming. Because these sweaters won't knit themselves!
So what's catching my attention at the moment? The Alfalfa Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn and the Crooked Little Baby Bonnet by Melissa LaBarre. I have quite a few pregnant friends and I am itching to make tiny hats for all of them. (Not to mention the tiny sweaters. . .) The Stockard Cardi by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, the Clarity Cardigan by Gretchen Ronnevik, High Country by Carol Sunday, and Toulouse by Leah Thibault. Swing knitting. Oversized cables. Marling. The Fair Isle hat in Loft leftovers I've had planned for a month. Spinning scrappies from Funky Carolina and Into the Whirled for the most colorful pair of socks ever. Setting up another project on the loom. And. . . and. . . and. . .
So you see, I have a terminal case of the wandering fiber eye. But if you'll excuse me, I'll be over here staring balefully at this sweater. Send good thoughts.
