distraction: a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else
This arrived in my mail last week.
It was an evil attempt by Erica to distract me. Shiny, brand-spankin' new, never seen before, not even yet listed in Raverly new yarn (as soon as it is listed, I'll let you know, promise.) Kollage Yarns has a gorgeous new yarn.... Lofty.
So very, very, very lofty. And lovely.
In my absolute favorite color. I think that was the evil part. She knows me too well! How can one not cast on with this immediately?!
Doesn't Erica know I have designs I have to knit? Patterns to finish writing? Why, oh, why does she attempt to distract me?! All I want to do is knit this stuff up. It would make a gorgeous Winter Wonder. Or Snowboarder Hat that Rocks. Or. or. or...so many potentials! 100% Merino Wool, with a suggested gauge of 14 stitches = 4" on US 10.5 (6.5mm), you KNOW this would knit up so quickly. A cabled hat is calling its name. I know it. Erica knows it. Evil temptress. And in my favorite jewel-toned color, Seaport.
But I resisted. If only because I have a deadline looming. I'm not sure how much longer I can resist though.
I did finish the second Sunshine Yarns sock.
Any yarn or pattern distractions for you guys this past weekend? If you need additional distractions, I love the Ravelry Roundup posts that have been happening on French Press Knits. Although I don't want to be distracted more, I would love to hear what has been catching your eyes lately...do tell!
Happy Distraction-Free Knitting!!
