I've decided it's about frickin' time we see some order and discipline chez Dear. As of today, projects will get done in a quick, orderly fashion with a minimum of fuss, and there will be no more of these prolonged periods of blog-silence (if that means without pictures, then so be it, by gum!). Yes-sirree, I'm going to be running a tight ship, and I predict nothing but smooooooooth sailing from here on in.
(of course, after having written such a strong mission statement, I've been staring at the blank screen for the past 5 minutes, wondering what the heck to write about today. *sigh*)
Well, it may be on the late-ish side to talk about this, but what did you all think of the new Knitty? I confess I tend to be a bit nonplussed about the Spring and Summer knitting magazines (says the girl who posed for a Spring catalogue shoot - uuummmmmmmmmmm). Interweave Knits left me COMPLETELY indifferent this Spring, there's really NOTHING I want to knit in this issue. But I did add a few patterns from the Spring/Summer Knitty to my every-growing Ravelry queue, which now has a whopping 302 patterns (but that's about average, right? RIIIIGHT???). I'm intrigued by Summit, tickled by Tribute and charmed by Twisted (I DID tell you I'd gotten my sock mojo back).
I also purchased a few patterns lately in March I thought I'd share with you. I bought the Family Trunk Accessories Collection, the Birch Leaf Beret, Crooked Paths, the Owlet sweater (so cute!!!)... I think that's about it (although you never know, there's always tomorrow! heh).
So definitely some good things to look forward to!
Happy Knitting Everyone!
