Time Flies...

Holy Cow! How is it that almost two months have gone since I last posted!?! I do have to admit that I am having a bit of a lack of inspiration lately. I finished clapotis, made a booga bag that I don't like, whipped up a hat for my friend Denise and continued to work on a sock in Opal yarn that I am thinking may bore me to death. For some reason there just isn't anything that I have been passionately knitting or dying to knit. I wish there was. For weeks now I have been searching - looking through my stash trying to figure out what to make, surfing the net, even feeling willing to invest some hard earned moolah in yarn for a new project - BUT - I can't find one!!!

I had high hopes for the new Knitty that came out recently, but there isn't really a thing in it that I would want to knit for myself - or that I think will look good on me. I like UnGranny Smith but fear that all of those beads would feel annoying while wearing. At first I was SURE I was going to knit T-twist tee but then I looked at the back of it and realized I couldn't wear a comfortable bra with it - so that eliminated it right away!

Now I am holding out for Big Girl Knits - Amazon informed me that my order shipped today (which also includes Knitting Rules by the Yarn Harlot and One Skein). Now I all I need is Mason-Dixon Knitting and I will be set! Anyway - I have big hopes for Big Girl Knits - I am ready to make something knit that I love that I can wear - ALL FOR ME!!!!

Well that's all for now! Time to hit the sack - I have to remember to blog again soon and tell you about all of the podcasts I have been enjoying lately! Knitting Podcasts Rock!!!

You're going to have some fun when those books arrive. Hopefully you'll be able to find something to get excited about. Good luck!
