I recognize my body as a wondrous machine, and I feel privileged to live in it.

I did it!.....I bought all the yarn for the Fair Rosamund pattern! I bought the original yarn in the original colors for the sweater, tam and scarf! I'm so excited...but how am I going to get any socks knitted with this beauty on the needles? How do people whip out these projects so fast, I don't get it. And I'm a fast knitter, but there is not enough time in the day. I see other knitters, people who have kids, and jobs and real lives and in it all they whip out a whole project in like days or a week. What am I missing? And oh, where am I going to hide the 41 skeins of yarn for my dear Fair Rosamund? Any suggestions? Because my Mamacita is going to have a fit when the box is delivered and she sees it's MORE YARN??!! And then the questions will come...what about my wrap you were knitting? What about the sweater kit I bought you 2 Christmas' ago and is half finished?......HUH?.... I'll say...I'm working on it. I just put it down for awhile. I need variety.....Do you not know me? Do you not know the habits of a yarnaholic ADD knitter? (like it's her fault!) Ya, I'll blame it on her because certainly she knows how I am.....I mean, she birthed me, she created this creative knitter.

I'm still working on the Firestarter socks, although I did not do even one stitch last night. Tired and stuck watching American Idol and I need to concentrate on this pattern, so maybe tonight I'll finish one of the pair.

Have 3 projects coming up that I can't wait to tell you about....very soon my lovelies!!

(Can you tell I feel good about life?! Even my love life is better right now!)



Of course you need variety in your projects!! Who could disagree?LOL

And, WHO is that model for the Kilkenny?? Hubbahubba! I'm a sucker for a big nose and a beard!

I'm no expert but there were one or two changes I made. Like in the medium, I believe I cast on 2 extra stitches so that the "hem" would be symmetrical. I bought 10 balls of cherry for the jacket but had 3 or 4 left over. I ran out of Scotch Broom with 15 sleeve rows of that colour left to do. Could be that I had a "bad" ball as it seemed much thicker. When I remember, I'll put it in the mail for you!
