Just when I thought it was safe ...

Just when I thought I was actually going to make progress in both stash reduction and number of projects finished ... the new Knitty (http://www.knitty.com) came out.

Arghhhhh! To think I actually made myself a schedule. Green Hourglass sweater alternated with Denim Family Tunic at night while watching "Law and Order"; big brother's sox alternated with TwinB's sox at lunch during the week; shawl progress on weekends. It was working! I'm close to finishing the second sleeve on Hourglass, making slow but definite progress on the tunic (seed stitch is a bitch. A bitch on slow wheels. never again for the body of a sweater), and rounding the heels on the sox, I clicked on Knitty.

I love everything!!!!!!!!!!!!

The socks, the shawl, the sweaters. This is cruel.

Okay, a prize to the first person who can figure out how I can just knit all day, and still send kids to college. The practice of law will survive without me. My clients can survive without me (in spite of what they may believe -- especially the ones that call 10 times in a row, or leave voice mails in the middle of the night like I'd actually be there to answer!)

Why oh why don't we live in a society that values creative art, let's say knitting for example -- creating lovely, warm, useful objects -- over arguing about who gets the ATV or the Fiestaware?

It ain't fair.

To compound the problem, I'm going to the Finger Lakes Fiber Arts Festival on Saturday. To buy yarn. More yarn, now that those *&*^^* Knitty patterns have arrived.

Doomed, I tell you. Doomed.

I know! This issue of Knitty is going to be the death of me. There are too many patterns to knit and not enough time.
