I haven't caved yet! I'm really trying to be strong. I missed out on the Pick Up Sticks final inventory of Sweet Georgia. Was too slow, and by the time I was going to order, the colours weren't what I wanted to throw off my progress on not buying yarn for. However, that being said, the spirits of knitty goodness have thrown more temptation my way by means of an email notice from Lettuce Knits letting me know that they have a new/final shipment of Sweet Georgia. Agggghhhh.... What to do.
In terms of busting my stash, I am very pleased to say that I have used four balls of wool from it in the last week! I made a little gifty for my Knitty SP8 partner, and I am making a purse. In terms of busting along my UFOs, well, let's just say, I'm not doing so well on that account. I have completely abandoned my second (well 4th if we're counting totals 'cause it's the 2nd sock of the 2nd pair) hot tamale sock, and poor ol' Samus. What to say about poor ol' Samus. I really do want to get back to it. Honestly I do. I've just somehow lost it to the bottom of the knitting basket. Maybe once my purse is finished, I'll dig it back out and just get it done once and for all!
UPDATE: Ok... it's just 4:00pm... twenty minutes later than my original post and here's what happened. I broke down and ordered Sweet Georgia's lace weight How could I not? It's so pretty. So? Now what? Anyone have any suggestions for a pattern? There's 885 yds I believe. I've never done much with lace (especially using finer wool) so suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
