Okay, really, this is out of hand.

New Knitty came out this morning! Usually I see a lot of things I like that I'll queue for later. Now there must be something in the air because I love these socks and want to cast on for them RIGHT NOW. I think part of the appeal is an easily memorized lace pattern (I have three pairs of Boring Socks on the needles right now...come to think of it, the fact that I have three pairs on the needles at the same time is probably a clue I have no business looking at sock patterns just now); part of the appeal is that it's written specifically for Socks that Rock, so it takes the yarn's tendency to pool into account. All my lovely STR from Md Sheep and Wool is calling me...... Must, not. cast. on. Must. not. cast. on.

Work continues on my February Lady Sweater. I've lost count of how many times I've cast on for this, and I'll have to rip and cast on once more, since Version 2.0 came out yesterday. It's definitely worth it, though. I remarked on Ravelry that this is the perfect Liz Lemon sweater: smart, cute, hip without trying to be hip. I can't wait to wear it. And hey, we have a Ravelry Group KAL for the sweater, so come join us! And stop by the store if you're making this because a bunch of us are working on it there as well.

okay, (1) THIS is where i found out about knitty being out! in fact, i even visited it moments before reading this but apparently my cache wasn't letting me see it. dum ol' safari. (2) i love those socks, too! we could have a kal for those when we finish our lady sweaters. i don't think i have any str down here, but i must have more upstairs. yay!

I think I only managed to have to rip and re-cast on twice for my sweater. I got to the first repeat of the lace pattern last night! I'm a little bummed, though, because I was hoping to work on it at a WWKIP Day thing tomorrow, but it looks like the weather isn't going to cooperate.
