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.

1. Making a new Dalek even though I have two Union Jack sweaters, an afghan, a Bad Juju, and an Animal Crackers hat that all need to be done soon.

2. I bought another $25 card to use at Dunn Bros last week. Oops?
