But I'll try.
First, I bought some yarn at Stitches West.
This is not that yarn. For a number of reasons, one of them which is I told myself I couldn't buy anymore blue or pink yarns. This yarn is perfectly pink, so it must not be from Stitches. Wait. I did actually end up buying pink AND blue yarns, but it is still not from Stitches.
Second, this yarn did not arrive by itself. Nope, it arrived with A LOT of other lovely Plucky Knitter yarn that I had pre-ordered back in January...I think just days after my knee surgery. Hence, the pain meds-induced yarn splurge. I don't remember ordering all that, but damn, I'm so glad I did. It is just gorgeous!! However, receiving it right after a weekend haul at Stitches...um...can anyone say yarn diet? Commencing now.
Third, I don't have a new design on the needles and had planned to wind some yarn from Stitches intended for a new design. I did actually do that last night. But I couldn't keep thinking about my bag of pretty Plucky Knitter yarns that had arrived and so I wound that lovely skein of pink happiness.
And that is where I don't know what happened next. Sure, I have a few baby showers coming up, but I wasn't expecting what happened next.
An amazingly quick new baby sweater design, featuring the motif from my Maryanne socks, suddenly appeared. I think I cast on around 10pm last night. And I'd finish it tonight if I could but I must go shopping with my sister. I blame the new sport yarn that is just perfect. Well, and the wee cuteness.
I mean the baby shower is still a few weeks away. This just seems weird. Efficient. Timely. Again, weird.
But I'm hooked!
