So I promised [livejournal.com profile] slb44 that I would post pics of my new 'do and the yarn I purchased while out today.

Here they be... )

Attempting first lace project at midnight after a long day? SUCH a bad idea.

On the upside, the pattern is easy and the chart is followable...as long as I actually follow it.

I decided to do this for the lace weight yarn. I'm doubling the size and making a stole/big ass scarf.

I uploaded some pictures onto Flickr so I thought I'd share with you guys as well.

Need I mention that these are not exactly dial-up friendly?

The first set are around the yard. The bougainvillea petals that were all over the porch from the wind and the actual bushes and stuff.

Random plantlife. )

The second set are just a couple of knitting pics. The first two are the sweater I'm working on and the third is the Malabrigo lace that I bought. I'm not sure the true color comes through in the pic on that one.

I have all this yummy yarn now and can't decide which project(s) to work on.

I have 3 projects already in progress:
A mini-cardigan which is almost at the point of trying on to see if I can separate the sleeves
A mistake rib scarf in Alpaca that I want to finish before the trip to Connecticut in a couple of weeks, and
A Clapotis which the Noro is kinda bugging me right now.

I was requested (read demanded) by a couple of folks at work to make mittens for them for the trip back East. (It's freakin' November people, not January. Suck it up!) So I have 3 weeks to do those, which should be plenty of time.

I also bought some Tweed Alpaca that I just want to roll around naked in for awhile...I mean I can't decide what to do with yet *cough*.

And finally, I have the lace weight Malabrigo that I want to do a stole/wrap with, but I can't decide which one. I'm leaning towards this, but as this is my first lace project I'm having trouble committing on that. Part of me says go the easy route and do another Clapotis, but I feel this yarn deserves more.

There are also a half dozen more projects I keep putting off, like some washcloths and several books I'd like to finish reading. But reading prevents me from knitting, so they're in a bit of a stand-off at the moment.

So, what's up with y'all?
