I must not buy more yarn.
I have been surfing for new yarn all over the Internet this week. No matter if I have money or not I still want the yarn. I could ask for some of this stuff for Christmas but there is that issue of, how does my family find the stuff I want? Plus there's all the yarn hiding in the stash. I think I will have to knit up some of it so that I can buy more. It is my birthday in December too so I could justify some of it for a birthday present right? OK OK. I will hold back and cast on for some socks or something. I am feeling squirrely with the Christmas presents and am now over half done with what I was planning on making. Funny how putting any kind of deadline on my knitting makes me feel so hemmed in.
I love the ability to search for patterns on Ravelry except for the fact that I have like 14 projects on my list. Besides socks I've been thinking about finding a shawl pattern to make myself. My plan is to get pretty good at lace knitting and make Miss M a wedding shawl someday. So I have to practice. I ordered a pattern today called Bee Fields Triangular Shawl, you can find it here.
I love, love, love that pattern. I have one problem. There's some really pretty yarn in my stash that I bought for the MS3 project which I never knit. I am just not sure I would like this shawl knit in this yarn. What do you think?
