I've got the itch. It's terrible. I keep fondling yarns and having dreams of new lace socks and having urges to cast on with the 6 skeins of Cascade that watch me from my desk as I type this entry. My four new sock yarns taunt me with visions of shimmering lace and eye of partrige heels. Oh- the misery!
Hehe...I bet you thought I was talking about a skin rash, didn't you? I wouldn't put that on a blog, silly goose!
I've just come from the Colchester SnB and have been inspired to cast on yet another pair of socks. I am completely enamoured with Louise's skull and crossbone socks in black and lime green, and I'm craving to do something with all my new hand dyed yarns that I got from Eric and Mandie over Christmas break! Torture! I've gotten quite bored with my 2 current projects (Joey Ramone hoodie and the never-ending bamboo scarf that I started for the airplane trip back here) but I keep telling myself that I need to finish at least 1 before I start a new pair. I'd love to finish them both, but the hoodie is getting bigger by the stitch and harder to drag around in a purse. I need something small and portable and lacey...hmmm...what on earth could I make? Hmmm...oh! Duh! Socks!
See? The itch is bad...
I'm still on the noctournal side of the day and although I'm doing better, getting up before 2 just isn't happening. Too bad I've got a class at 11 tomorrow. I'll do my best. I might have to invest in sleeping pills to get myself back on the right sleeping schedule. I am actually sleeping when I go to bed now, so that's an improvement to the bags under my eyes and my atttitude. I can be quite the bitch when I'm fully rested, you don't want to see when I'm sleep-deprived like I was last week.
So while I'm up until 3, I have been writing. Not essays or papers like I should be of course, but I'm dipping my hands into a little sci-fi novella which is turning out to be great fun! I know I'm already a giant dork, so a little sci-fi/romance couldn't hurt, right? God I love writing. 10 pages in so far and I just can't stop.
I think that pretty much sums me up right now. I'm outta here!
