Itchy Fingers

Another pair of socks is nearing completion and Sahara is progressing but I'm feeling the pull of new projects and it is so strong. I want to make a sweater for DQ - should it be Green Gable, a Central Park Hoodie, or maybe something else entirely. I'm feeling the urge to cable and show some wool who's boss.

Then again my fingers are itching to knit more lace. Despite my negative feelings towards lace weight yarn you just can't argue with the results. There is nothing quite as satisfiying as a lovely, filmy lace stole. The thing is that the perfect pattern eludes me. I'm not crazy about the triangle shape which lets a lot of stuff out. I also want something with a graceful blend of motifs that will challenge me and make me give thanks for lifelines. I have fingering weight yarn too that will work in a pinch but the patterns got to be fab.

I suppose that the longer I remain indecisive, the more UFO's I'll complete and that's not a bad thing either.

Meanwhile, since I have no pretty pictures to share I took a little quiz. Many of these are funny but way off base. This time, not so much.

You Should Drive a Red Car

You're the type of driver who isn't afraid to be the fastest on the road.

You have a lot of energy built up, and you tend to get your adrenaline fix from driving.

Moving at hyper speed, you tend to be annoyed with slow drivers and slow people.

Life's too short to be slowed down by someone else!

You know, I've driven with you and I think that description if dead on. I meant that as a compliment, of course.
