There is no way I should be casting on a new project. I have that Belvedere sock to finish, Dr. G's Memory Vest just needs a little ribbing at the collar and the armholes, not to mention the mountainous pile of UFOs laying around the place.
But, I bought a new winter coat today.
On the way home from the mall I stopped at one of many favorite LYS's, just to see if they had Cat Bordhi's new book - they did. Then I remembered that new color of Noro that I had seen a few weeks ago at the Point. It is so subtly colored. Quite a departure from the familiar Noro colors. I have to admit to obsessing over it recently.
A quick peek at those oh-so-perfectly crammed shelves in the back of the store and I had my three balls. I mean, a new coat deserves a freshly knit scarf, right? I'll be making my Turbulent Indigo pattern. I think it will work up nicely in Silk Garden. Besides, I'll need something simple to knit as I watch Season 2 of Weeds tonight.
Yes, I have gone astray yet again. So what else is new?
