too many blogs, not enough blogging

i find myself reading the posts of others... getting inspired and distracted... and dissapearing to do some knitting before i remember to update! now THAT isnt the point of a knitting blog, is it?? well... at least i've been knitting. that's a step.

my cat... ATE one of my rogue sleeves. 9 rows from the end of the cap. so... in order to clear the air a bit, and allow my frustration to dissipate, i've put her asside for now. the goal was to have rogue done before the end of classes, but as that's friday... it's not going to happen.

i did, however, start on the honeymoon tank from knitty with debbie bliss cotton angora. sooo fuzzy. everyone wants to touch it. hehe! i think i'm really going to love this one...

and now, because of the glass house blog i'm dying to knit the cover tank for the spring/summer VK. and i think i will!! i have no idea what i'll use yet, but i'll come up with something.

... this is a brief entry today. cause my head hurts. and i want to fondle the honeymoon tank some more!

missing out?

hey kids, am i missing out on something big?

as much as i LOVE my LYS, i have never held one skein of kureyon, lorna's laces, koigu... or colinette. is this weird? i hear so much about these yarns, and what i SEE of them is beautiful (i remember in particular seeing someone's rosedale sweater in an amazing spring-green kureyon colorway) but... well, i've just never seen one in person.

the only places i shop are ace hardware (for my lion brand, and i wish they'd carry microspun...), "the knitting cove" (the aforementioned lys), and green mountain spinnery, when i can manage to haul my ass up to vermont.

i think... if i had a regular income i'd be doing much more internet shopping, and would've experienced a few of these things by now... but i'm reluctant to buy something i've NEVER touched. i'd buy, like... lambs pride, or noro silk garden, or something else i know WELL online.

speaking of buying...
i should NOT be let out of the house alone any more.

debbie bliss, noro iro, lavold silky wool, some lace mohair, a little more naturespun to finish my rogue (the ONLY justifiable purchase), sock wool, some fun "college" yarn for spring/fall hats...

::sigh:: i'd better bust my ass and get done with Rogue soon, cause i'm NOT starting anything new till i finish that!!! there, i've said it in public. if i start anything new before i finish rogue, may you all metaphorically throw stones at me... or something.

20-something rows before the sleeve cap shaping on sleeve one... i can do this!!!
