Knit Picks order?

Is anyone interested in putting an order together for KnitPicks?

What I need is minimal. Jumi needed a couple of things, too. We could have free shipping together.

New Obsessions

Since we've established there is no knitting tonight, I thought I'd share the new knitting obsessions on the blog:

1. Making those needle tip protector stopper things out of wine corks.
2. Fair Isle. I finally started making some Fair Isle mittens from the only Elizabeth Zimmermann book I have (Knitter's Almanac). They are gorgeous.
3. Sweaters. This means I'm buying balls of yarn 10 at a time. This virtually guarantees I'll never finishing anything ever again and that my apartment will be overrun with yarn.
4. Trying to find a new way to weave in ends. For some reason, the ends keep popping out on some of my projects.

NaKni Reality Check

Even though I'm cheating, and just finishing a sweater that I have already knit 6" on, I think this is going to be tough.

Based on the calculations that I made yesterday, I needed to knit ~11 rows per day to finish on time. This doesn't sound like much, but with 200 or so stitches per row, I think I'm going to be a candidate for arthritis by the time this is over.

ETA: RAVELRY QUEUE CALL-OUT: Jen, didn't you say you weren't going to make any more Bad Jujus?
