it hasn't even been a month yet!

I would really like to be more accountable for my atrocious knitting habits... I was listening to the Lime and Violet podcast and realized that I probably have at least as many UFO's as Violet does. I think that is... impressive. Maybe "impressive" isn't the right word. I should probably do something about that... but I just keep putting it off, and casting on new things. (for instance, last night I wanted to make socks. Now rather than just pick up the yarn for a mate to sock 1, completed in September, I think; I just found new yarn and started a new sock.... yea, that is smart)

i haven't spun in ages either. I could blame it on a number of things that are going on in my life, but it is probably mostly due to laziness. When I am free, I just want to veg out and watch TV or peruse the internet. I will probably pick it back up soon... because I do miss it; but I also want to take a class or two so that I feel more confident about what I am actually doing.

In other news, I have become obsessed with obtaining New Pathways for Sock Knitters by Cat Bordhi. I have two problems in this regard. 1. it costs money. 2. It costs money. Right now, things are tight, and extra money is a rare commodity. I owe my dear friend arpad 2 steak dinners about now, for all the times he has covered me... and it has been hard. So i can't justify spending $30 dollars I don't have.... BUT I WANT THE BOOK...

It is coveteousness... it really is. :(

Now for pretty pictures. Here are the mittens I made for Lizzy and Audrey from church. they haven't seen them yet, so don't spoil the surprise!
