I really WANT to be knitting this sweater. It's the February Lady's sweater by Pamela Wynne, and I loves it. It's based on EZ's "Baby Sweater on Two Needles". I think I even have an acceptable yarn that is not only in stash, but on the list of yarn I want to knit up for Mission Possible.
Instead, I'm knitting this sock:
This yarn was given to me as a gift - and I just love it. I haven't knit with a self-striping yarn in ages, but there is something about the colors in this that I love. Plus - I know it would also appeal to a friend who desperately needs a pair of Birthday Socks. So I started knitting. And then I found that the 2 'fake fair isle' sections are together. Blech. But it was like a train wreck I couldn't look away from! I just can't stop knitting!
And I sent a picture to the birthday girl - she likes it (or is saying that because she just likes hand knit socks....). Whatever - I need to keep knitting these - for whatever reason I can't stop!
