starting new projects left and right

My last purse was such a success that I am raring to start a new one!
I have the colors gathered, and that is start, but I'm not sure how I am going to handle it, or what the pattern will be. I am in love with the chevron look, but I want beads too, andMy last purse was such a smashing success that I can't help but make another! I have some yarn to I think that might be too much. I will keep you updated as I work, I might decide to go for something altogether different!
I also decided that I need more tank tops, because I am severly limited in my choice of cool summer tops... and I have the yarn for it. I am still in the swatching phase, and I have decided that I am going to make this pattern my very own, including the idea that everything is going to fit me. No standard pattern, but some useful information from Knitting Daily about bust darts, and I should be all set. And actually, as I wrote this post, I realized I could use the chevron pattern on this! It might just work! Swatch first, however, because I want this to work out right! . It is From Knit One Crochet Too, it's called Angora Soft, and it is 45% Nylon, 40% Viscose, and 15% Angora. It was in a Webs sale, labeled as "crimson" so I bought it thinking it would be much more... red. But it's not red, it's salmon pink. I was annoyed, but on the other hand, its a lovely color, and it will look good on me.
Lastly, I read the Yarn Harlot's most recent post, and I fell into the trap as well. I have 1200 yards of laceweight green yarn, and today by midnight was the last night to sign up, and I want to play...and I have tons of beads... So now i am doing it too... We'll see if I manage to accomplish anything!
And did I mention... I am drawing again? ;)
