Buzzkill

So much knitting and spinning going on!  I won’t bore you with another picture of my red roving that I’m spinning.  But, I’m making progress and will show you when I’m done.  Which has to be soon, since it is a fair submission and the items are due in a week. (I think.  I better check.)

But, look at this cutie patootie Tiny Tea Leaves sweater that I finished:

….complete with the REALLY cutie patootie hippo buttons:

And now I’m on an I-better-finish-an-unfinished-project-before-I-start-another-becuase-the-unfinished-pile-is-bugging-me  kick.  Don’t you have those?  So, I’m finishing my Through the Loops Mystery Knit-a-Long 2014 socks that I started back in March(ish):

One sock almost done.  The other 1/2 done.   The toes will have stripes!  I’m determined to get these done asap.

HOWEVER….. (did you notice that there is always a HOWEVER…)

There is this other mystery knit-a-long starting.  And I wanted to use my new Periwinkle Sheep yarn:

So I have today to finish those socks, since this knit-a-long starts tomorrow.  (Hmmmmm.  In my head I can totally do it.)

Ok, and then there is this, which finally arrived in the mail the other day, and I’m dying to start them:

I ordered this six weeks ago, not realizing that it would take six weeks to get here.  It was one of those impulse buys.  If you remember, I’m not terribly patient.

Impulse buy + six week shipping = buzzkill.  But, now that it’s here…..

I’ll let you know how things turn out.
