god, its been absolutely forever since i updated this blog. the holidays were meh, but i survived them fairly intact although somewhat bitter and eager to hid in bed for long stretches of time.

and to sooth the savage beast, I knit. and shopped. and knit. oh and shopped.

of the shopping:
-2 new pairs of shoes
-2 purses
-a bathroom storage unit
-a new Blackberry (and sadly, this was an impulse buy!)
-tickets to "The Farnsworth Invention" (come on, its Hank Azaria in an Aaron Sorkin play!)
-membership in the Rockin Sock Club
-and more yarn

yeah, it was an expensive Dec.

but I also knit! and made some cute stuff!


Huckleberry Scarf- made out of a merino-silk blend that is the softest thing ever

Koolhaas Hat- made out of the same yarn as the scarf. Beautiful yarn, but a bitch to work on with this pattern. Slippery yarn + cables= me cursing loudly

Plus lots of yarn:
Rowan Felted Tweed- destined to be mittens to match the hat and scarf

Artyarns Supermerino in a lovely blue-green

Punta del Este Mericash- a merino-cashmere blend that i would love to roll around in- naked:

My goal is to update the blog at least once a week, but i would much prefer 2-3 times a week. My other goal is to use up more of my stash b/c i realized I have enough yarn right now to keep me knitting steadily for the next 2 years. seriously, its a disease. I won't cut out all yarn purchases, but i will try to use up yarns in my stash for projects on my Ravelry queue before getting distracted by shiny new projects.

like all good resolutions, we'll see how long that lasts
