One of the worst seen... STARTITIS! And it's all because of those empty needles laying in my needle case. Friday night after I finished the Cider Moon socks, I was looking at my yarn stash and thinking about two of the new patterns that had just been released for groups I belong to and well, I had to. It became an uncontrollable urge. I started 3 new socks (with one more waiting in the wings). Here they are: Lorna's Laces Child's Play in the Charade pattern (the link is in her sidebar), Trekking 161 knitting plain (Monica recently gave me this yarn, and it seems it is getting most of my attention right now), and Trekking ? in the Spiralling Socks pattern (one repeat done).
Waiting in the wings is some blue Opal 6-fach (that I had been knitting in a cable pattern from the Socksx3 book but ripped) to be knit in the new Six Sox pattern called "I Love Gansey Socks". I told you I had it BAD! The problem is I want to start more. I have a few more sets of empty needles and yarn that wants to be knit and patterns Monica has designed that I want to knit up(boy that was a run on). See how bad it is? If there is an intervention for this, please don't set it up. I will find a place to hide with all my yarn.
Here is a picture of the girls (daughter and niece) in their Harry Potter shirts. The Gryffindor Lion they copied from on-line, all the other designs (Snitch, Sorting Hat, and Wands) were done free hand by them. They are so talented and imaginative. They got a lot of compliments on them as we waited in line to get our books.
Well, that's it for now. I'm thinking I'll be getting the box for my turn at the DishRag Tag by the end of the week, so socks will have to be delayed for some fast dish cloth knitting. Until then....
