Uh-Oh... Here It Comes...


Not only have I been under the weather this past week, but I've also been rather uninspired with my Koigu socks. Not that they're not fun, not that they're not turning out lovely... it's just that I've been so... very... blah. I was ready to chalk it up to PMS when it hit me: I'm not working on anything other than the socks. Nothing. No large projects. No presents for anyone (shame on me, with the holidays only weeks away). Nothing to challenge me. Nothing to learn from (Kelley Petkun, maybe you're onto something with your 7 UFOs). I need... project... now.

Alas, I'll have to make do with just my socks for a few more days. I'll be visiting my fave LYS this weekend, and I know exactly what I'm gonna get: tons and tons of Zara. I love this yarn. It's so soft and cozy, and if you hold 3 strands at once in different colors, you can make the most luxurious baby blankets. And that's what I'll be making. Two of Baby A.K.'s daycare teachers are expecting their first babies, and they've been so good to my Little Monkey that they deserve handknit blankies. I love the pattern that I use for my baby blankets, too - it's one of those things that's really easy to make, but always elicits "ooohs" and "ahhhhs" from the non-knitters. I'll definitely have pictures in the near future. For now... I'll content myself with my socks. Sigh.
