So off to my LYS I went yesterday with the intention of paying for the toe-up sock class I'm taking next week and the thought of just looking at yarns that I might use to make this really cute sweater
This is the February Fitted Pullover that takes the lace pattern from the February Ladies Sweater and makes it into a pullover. I have the FLS as my next sweater project, but I think I will bump it back and make this next. Of course I found what I think will be the perfect yarn, so I fell off the wagon and bought it. Actually, I haven't made a yarn purchase in 3 months, so I guess I was overdue.
I am still going to go ahead and splurge on the new Knit Picks sock yarns when they come in. After all sock yarn doesn't count toward stash.
Saw the first robins yesterday. Yeah spring. But I am deeply resentful of losing an hour of sleep and will complain about it until I get it back in the fall.

I am moving beyond plain vanilla socks and getting inspired by the yarns already in my stash and the prospect of these delicious new yarns and colors from Knit Picks They are totally teasing us with these pictures. The yarn will be in by April and I am saving up to buy as many as I can afford. The greens and yellows and oranges are especially appealing! Need some spring color!

I heard a robin's song a few days ago but haven't spotted any as yet. Maybe this weekend, when we are supposed to get some rain that will hopefully melt the snow and make the worms come to the surface.
I have had second thoughts about making the mystery knitalong project on the Knitting and Tea and Cookies group. I am too focused on getting my current projects completed to play right now. Maybe later :-))
