Trudging along...

The bramblefly cropped cardi is almost finished. I had been knitting on teeny tiny needles for so long and I just had to take a break, of course it was a bit too long and I'm way behind now. Fortunately, I've finished the back and one sleeve with just half a sleeve to go. It's kind of sad because once i'm finished, I don't think I'll want to wear it for a while. To be honest, I'm kind of sick of the colour pink right now. This is what knitting monogomy does to me, it just turns me off completely. I tried, oh I tried, I tried to be faithful to the little pink cardi that I had such high hopes for, but I'll never be faithful again. I never thought I'd say this, but I'll be happy if I never see you pink sparkly face again. No, no I've found a new love.

I promised myself I'm not buying any more yarn (unless it's sale yarn, of course) until I've put a huge dent into my stash (or at least assigned projects). I'm having a fun time stash-shopping, I've moved all my clothes out of my drawers and into my hanging closet for yarn storage, so everytime I open a drawer it's like a little exciting surprise. I found a ton of purple yarn chumming it up with this lovely bright red yarn. I immediately decided that my style for summer '08 will be circus chic. So I just casted on for these purple and red cabled legwarmers, but they'll be more like boots (which may, or may not have teeth)

And keeping with my stashbusting promise, I went to Lettuce Knit for WWKIPD and also for Franklin Habits, 1000 Knitters project, and didn't buy any yarn. I was thinking about it, I stood there next to the cupcake for a good ten minutes staring at purple and green yarn, and just as I was about to pick some up (and a cupcake) I was whisked away for my photo. Of course, I didn't take any photos of my own (my camera was under two knitting projects) I had a blast. Maytina and I represented our Stitch 'n Bitch by bringing the Optimus Helmet. So all in all, it was a good day.
