Somebody Stop Me

I need an intervention. Seriously. I can't seem to stop knitting Baby Uggs.

They keep popping onto my needles when I'm not looking and a couple of hours later, there I am embroidering the white fluffy parts and wondering how I ended up with another pair of finished Uggs.

Believe me, they're cuter than the photo would lead you to believe. I should've stuffed the toes with cotton and done all the stuff a serious knitwear photographer would do but I'm a writer, Jim, not a photographer and sometimes the best I can do is point, shoot, and pray.

Speaking of socks, there's still something to be said for the thrill of knitting a very plain sock in a very fanciful yarn. That's Regia 4-fadig Square below and I can tell you it was a pure joy to knit with. Bright juicy colors, fun patterning, Regia quality. Square made plain old stockinette fun.

Did I mention my cowl obsession? It started late last year with Tudora and continues apace. That's the start of Thermis below. I'm about 80% finished now so a (bad) finished photo should be coming in the next day or two.

Don't say I didn't warn you!

GIVEAWAY WINNER: Kathy M won the evil baby yarn. (Say a prayer for her, okay?)

NEW GIVEAWAY: If you'd like to win two skeins of Regia Square in the colorway shown above, drop me a note here with Square in the subject. Winner will be announced Tuesday evening.

I really enjoy working with sock yarn like that. It's great for projects when you want interest but need simplicity (as in instructions.) I try to always have one project that I can knit and talk at the same time in case the other project (or projects!) require me to shush my family and retreat into a back room.

Why, oh why, can't my computer learn to make the connection when I click on "here" in your blog. This drives me crazy, but knitting helps keep me from killing people or going over the edge. I DO have the T-shirt.

Congrats and good luck to Kathy!

I love self-striping yarn like that, but never seem to find it when I go shopping for it. Those socks look like a lot of fun.

I love those socks (and the Baby Uggs)! Sometimes you just need some fun and funky socks.

I've decided to make cowls for Christmas presents this year. I can't wait to see your finished cowl. :)
