Knitting Roundup

I didn't get a lot accomplished today. I was in bed for most of the day with a terrible headache. But before I fell ill I went to two local yarn shops to turn over ideas about patterns and yarn again and again and again. I've been searching for a few yarns to use with the patterns from the new Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora book. I will make Mia in the actual yarn. But for the others that I really want to make (Lottie, Rosy) I wanted to branch out. While visiting Churchmouse I became totally smitten with Mountain Colors. I just want to have all the colorways in all the yarns they make. The 4/8s in Redtail Hawk looks like a good candidate for Lottie. But honestly, I could put on a blindfold and pick one of their colors and would be guaranteed to be happy. They are all so gorgeous. I don't know about Rosy yet. I need to spend less time planning and more time knitting!

I pinned down my Shapely Tank front and GE Cardi back to measure them so I snapped a few pictures.

Just more and more stockinette. Maybe that's why my mind is wondering to new projects. The Classic Elite Premiere I'm using for the tank is just so soft. I really love it.

This makes me want to learn how to spin. I don't know if I actually like these yarns but they are certainly interesting to look at. They would be an adventure to knit with.

I've been watching the first season of The Office the last few nights while knitting. This show is excruciatingly funny. It's so deadpan. It makes me very happy that I don't have a job.
