You Know You Knit Too Much...

...When You Find Knitting Notions Hidden in Odd Places

Sunday is bed sheet changing day chez cpurl and I picked up the duvet corner to give my comforter a good shake and heard something rattling around. Assuming it was a cat toy, I reached in to the far corner and found this:



Ever since I read "At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much", I constantly discover how many apply to me. Now, if I could only knit in my sleep...

Last night, I finished my first pair of Cascade Fixation KAL Socks:


Our Kal Hostess, Knitpastis, (could she be any cuter? I think not) knit a pair of ankle socks from one ball of Cascade Fixation and I was doubtful when I started that I could do the same but she was right! At $5.00 a ball, this is pretty economical knitting. And they knit up fast, so my need for instant gratification is easily met (why I chose knitting, which takes infinite concentration and patience as my addiction,is beyond me) .

And last but not least, last Saturday was Cary's 3rd birthday. He was clearly in a "no photos, please" mood and pushed my camera out of the way.


Me thinks somebody had a few too many dips in the cat nip.....

Those are some great socks! Such a cool colour! Is the yarn very springy to knit with?

Hehehe, catnip.

Those socks are cute. I love the color.

Oh no! I just found my counter (after ransacking the house and accusing everyone of stealing it) in my duvet cover last weekend.

I noticed a Brittany Cable needle on the floor of the car yesterday when putting the little one into her car seat.

I did leave it there, though.

Where is the link for the sock pattern? I happen to have a ball of fixation...only one.

Ever since I read that bit about losing tape measures in one of her books or another, I can't seem to hang on to one!
