A funny thing's been happening around here... projects keep putting themselves on the needles. Really, it's just happening. I'm minding my own business and next thing I know, *boom* there's a new WIP cast on! Okay, seriously, I think there are a few reasons for my current case of startitis:

  • Wisconsin is in seasonal transition, so I'm torn between cold and warm weather projects so that doubles the temptation.
  • Super-secret projects are on the needles that I desperately want to share, but I just can't - the boss lady, she's serious about the secrets.
  • Ordering spring/summer yarn.
  • Yarn is pretty.
  • I'm weak - mostly, I'm weak.

So, what do I do this afternoon? Obviously the only sensible thing, gather up a new project. This one is small and will be a ton of fun since it's Arne & Carlos:


See that beautiful selection of Cascade 220 Sport? It's going to be fabulous for some Easter eggs/ornaments. Never mind that I am a month behind on my Christmas balls for Sarah's Merry KAL, never mind the next KAL for the shop is currently a WIP and April is only getting closer, never mind OWLS that basically just needs a yoke, the Grace cardigan that is almost ready to divide for sleeves... Nothing to see here, move along.

I couldn't resist this one. Really... The books have been front and center at the shop the last couple weeks and a small fun project that I can complete in a very short time will be very good motivation to tackle the other projects. And, I get to use my favorite Blue Sky Alpacas dpn's!

Once the new KAL is announced in a little over a week, I'll show you what's inside my project bag(s) - it is sure to be very entertaining, indeed.

Have you caught startitis yet? Be careful, it's highly contagious!
