I need to go shopping. I need pants that fit. But the thought of going out and actually trying on stuff makes me want to cry. I hate dressing rooms. And I just want to spend the day sleeping.
On a more positive note, have you guys seen the new issue of Twist? Oh my freaking God, they've done it again! There are so many great patterns in this issue it would take me a lifetime to make everything I like (I am a slow knitter after all).
I loved loved loved the first issue of the mag, but I had promised myself I wouldn't buy a pattern until I'm ready to cast on for it. Otherwise, knowing myself, I'd buy everything I like and end up with over 50$ worth of patterns that I wouldn't all knit. Therefore, I haven't bought a Twist pattern yet. But I will. Oh yes I will. I know, for sure, that I will buy the pattern for the Postwar Mittens. They're beautiful, they're perfect, I want them now.
I also really like the Lotus Leaf Mittens and the Licorice Stick Socks. As for sweaters, they're all beautiful, but my favourite is Vivian. But there's a zipper, and I've read on Ravelry that there are steeks too, therefore it's too complicated for me. I haven't yet managed to make a garment that looks good enough to actually be worn in public, so I think I'll try some less complicated ones first. But the sweater is beautiful, really.
