What a project whore!

Yes! that's right, i've become a project whore. I just cast on a whole new project (it's not on the sidebar yet because i'm uber lazy). It's from the pattern swap that Jill held at her apartment on Sunday. Counteless other bloggers have reported about the festivities of the day (Here's one and another and yet an additional perspective just so you have an idea of how it all went down). I'm maintaining that the real reason I didn't bring my camera is that I didn't want to have a record of any illegal activities (sick how that word changed in five years from using substances to infringing copyrights!). Yes. That's the party line anyway.

So what is the new apple of my eye project wise?
I'm making two of these suckers for the new babies of the office. I've always wanted to make something out of Debbie Bliss yarn, and there was that Cotton Cashmere just sitting up there in the basket looking all bright and shiny! So I got some of it to make some bibs. Two of them. I feel much better now that I'm looking at the bib on a boy in the picture. Makes me feel a lot more sane because both of the babies are boys and I was a little leary of maknig a petal bib for a boy. But whatever. Here's my gorgeous new crack yarn:



Yup. Two babies. The orange bib will be going to Queens and the green one will be going to Houston, Texas. No really, did you seriously think I could get away without buying any green yarn? I mean, it's such an awesome color. We'll try not to dwell on the fact that the apple green Birdwatcher's Beret or the kermit green Embossed Leaves Socks haven't been touched in a week.

It's not the color that's turning me into a yarn whore, it's just...well...I like it. Yes, I'll admit it. I definately derive pleasure from being able to choose which project to work on and then consoling the rest like my yarn herem - reminding it that I still care. Part of this I think was brought on by the knitting olympics and part of it from being sick. I really didn't have an easy project started and so I tried to teach myself how to crochet, but you know what, there's just too many projects to be knitted before I get to that. I should really finish the olympic sweater so I can give Jewell the pattern back. Maybe I'll tack that on to my list of things to do this weekend.

Finally...I was going through withdrawal from Jenn posts, and you know what that's like, you anything-green yarn addict!

Very cool colors. There is only so much pastel a baby can take.

Can you tell me where I can find the pattern for the petal bib? I love it.

the Petal Bib is in a book called One Skein i think.

I like your colors, too, Jenn! Very cool and cheerful. There is something to be said for always buying green--you are always coordinated.
Glad to have you back, you naughty, naughty blogger!
