Hahahaha. Perhaps you have a new set of projects. ;)

Ack! No! No more projects! I'm not allowed to take on any more projects! ...except the Uncommon Gardening Gloves from the most recent IK, and I only cast those on because I can't sew while my beloved is trying to sleep! Really! And maybe the Waving Lace socks... But those are for my sister's birthday! But other than that...

NO NEW PROJECTS!

Ok silly woman, what brought this on? Not that I don't totally agree with you on all of them mind you, I was just curious.

I'm thinking there needs to be on called "Socks that don't look like your grandma's doilys(sp)" or something to that effect.

BTW, how's the wedding clothes coming? You are going to put lots of pics up of the happy day, yes? *BIG FREAKING HINT*

I was looking at knitting books on Overstock.com, and they were all "easy knits" this and "chunky knits" that. I don't WANT easy knits; I want patterns that both look good and make me go "do what to the where now?" And I'm chunky enough, thanks; I don't need a sweater to exacerbate the problem. I don't want "dumbed down" knitting. I want complex, challenging patterns sized for wimmins wif bewbs, which means me.

I have two lengths of fabric pre-washed and dried; the other three will get done tomorrow. Then I'll proabably start making the two smocks I need, and by the time I'm done with that, my mom and sister will be home from Scotland and maybe Sis and I can have a sew-fest, if I get it all cut out.

And yes, when there are pictures they shall be shared. :-D

I was snorking my way through this, but Christmas Knitting That Doesn't Look Like Tatty Crap made me laugh out loud.
