The last thing I need is more inspiration

Wow you guys really loved the bags! I got mine at the Loopy Ewe. Great color selection and fast shipping. Plus I added in some needles to get to free shipping. Check out the new fabrics – crocodile and fur. Fun!
Confession time – I’ve hit that point in my projects where I need to just push through. This is the flip side of cast on mania. I’m still staying strong but I won’t lie – it’s tough
Several new-to-me books and designs have popped up and they’re KILLING ME.
Knit Red
Knit Red: Stitching for Women’s Heart Health – a collection of patterns dedicated to women’s heart health. A fabulous group of designers including Norah Gaughan, Jared Flood and Ysolda Teague (check them out on Ravelry ). Gorgeous designs and it’s a great buy. All that red is so enticing! 30 designs for 13 bucks,and 5% of the proceeds are donated as well.
The Sock Report
The Sock Report – 16 designs for sock weight yarn. Shawls, scarves, a garment and of course – socks. I especially love the Tulip Dreams Shawl (pictured on the right).
Dorothy Shawl
The Dorothy Shawl – a 2-color, sock weight shawl from the Knit Picks site. Download the pattern for $3.99 or buy the kit for $18.99. I could see doing one in more similar colors – maybe a purple and red combo, or out of my color comfort zone and doing a vivid blue and chartreuse.
And a quick knitting update. I only have 10 rows left on my Sweet Dreams Shawl so you should see an FO in the next few weeks.
Happy Knitting!

  1. Do I see a RED theme goin’ on here?
    The Knit Red collection is wonderful, I need to see if that’s an ebook.
    I fell in love with the shawl on the KP cover.

  2. I am sure it is beyond tough to finish projects with all these patterns tempting you. I am thinking of investing in some horseblinders.
    I have been drooling over the sock report as well. I just know if I buy it now, nothing on my needles will get done. There is way too much to love there.
    I can’t wait to see your Sweet Dreams Shawl!!!!!

  3. It’s so hard to resist, isn’t it? There are so many tempting new patterns to cast on … I just wish I had more hands and hours in the day to knit with!
