Knitting here and there

I think, after last week's knitting insanity, that my ability to focus on one project has gone into hiding for now. I feel as if in the past few days I keep skittering from one thing to the next, casting on for this and that and then ripping it all out to start over again. The pieces for my Tasha bag sit, untouched, in a pile on the washing machine, waiting for me to seam them together. I did one more pattern repeat on my latest pair of socks but then set them aside. I flipped aimlessly through back issues of knitting magazines and finally settled on a little cabled bag, since I just happened to have the yarn it calls for.

I also placed an order with KnitPicks on Monday night. It was so hard trying to decide what I wanted to order, but I finally picked a good selection and am now eagerly awaiting its arrival. Included in the order is some of their Alpaca Cloud - a laceweight yarn - because I have come to the conclusion that lace knitting is fun, and I might as well get some yarn appropriate for it.

I also have another few projects to add to the list of things I need to do. My little sister (the one I sent the afghan to in April) noted in an email that her husband has been making noises about the fact that he and my niece might need their own afghans. Apparently my little sister isn't so good at sharing (heh). Luckily I've got the yarn for one of them already, and there's a short list of blanket patterns I've been wanting to try, only needing the excuse. How nice to be provided with a reason!
