Brain... exploding...




every fall I do this - I want to knit EVERYTHING I see, and I want to knit it NOW. I assume that, instead of buying additions to my fall "wardrobe", and I use the word loosely, I'll just whip some things up. So I settle on a couple of items, completely doable, and (hopefully) based on stash:
Come Together, from Twist Collective, in (stash) Malabrigo worsted, Paris Night colourway
Come Together sweater - front

Clapotis (yes, I may be the last person on earth to succumb to the call of the siren), in (stash) Elann's Peruvian Baby Silk

And then I get a new book or pamphlet, and decide I can add another couple of sweaters to the party, one using stash, one not. Oh, but then another book comes out, and something kind of snaps in my already overworked little brain.

There's a coat, and a sweater that looks like an upscale sweatshirt. And I have stash yarn which would work for the coat. And I'm hoping to visit Kelly in Wisconsin in November, and wouldn't it be cool to actually wear the coat when I go? And maybe the sweater? And/or one of the others in the works or waiting patiently in line?

In the words of Yosemite Sam, "I'm a-thinkin'... and my head hurts".

Send reinforcements...

not the last. I still have not knit a Clapotis. (I'm debating entering a protection program from those that will hunt me down and make me...)
