It's all about discipline

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!

I'm very intrigued by Summit as well. There's a few others that hit my interest, like: Duck, Que Sera, Twisted, Buttonhead and lastly Anthemion Wrap. Ok, so a few... ha ha!

Keep blogging... I miss coming to my bloglines and seeing a new entry from you!

If I had the patience and skill to make Tributes, I could never wear them on my feet. But the DUCK SOCKS! Oh, why don't they make them for adults?!

I have 460 projects in my queue, and I intend to knit them all. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

From the new Knitty, I like Tappan Zee and Anthemion and that's about it. I'm not crazy about Spring/Summer either.

And if you have your sock mojo back, you should join us at Sock Knitters Anonymous. April is Cookie A. month!

See, I feel the exact same way, IK just, well, it bored me to be honest. Knitty was far more intriguing.
I must go back for a second look at the socks!

Just saw MM's Summit in a Kauni yarn and it's GORGEOUS.. Enough said, I believe it will be a new Clapotis.. Not only is it cool to see it seems very cool to knit.

Very nice choices! I love checking your Rav queue for ideas...! I lost my sock mojo after finding 3 single socks of different patts in my yarn closet and not wanting to complete their mates....sigh...

I queued Summit and Twisted, but have no idea when I'll get a chance to get to anything. I'm still charmed by your Honeybee so I feel like everything else is coming to a standstill...
