Twist and Shout

I've been MIA again, sorry! I thought I had posted last week, but apparently not. I have to admit I don't have any pretty pictures to post. No FOs, no interesting WIPs that I want to share, no new yummy yarn.

I haven't started anything new since I finished my Bella Mittens. Instead, I picked up an old UFO that I plan on finishing. I'll wait till I'm closer to finishing before posting pics though, as I'm scared I'll get tired of it again and set it aside.

I do plan on casting on soon though. First of all, the fantastic ladies from the Go Habs Go Ravelry group are planning a "Sock-u Koivu KAL" (get it? Haha!). I'm going to use my Go Habs Go yarn of course and knit Chris a pair of socks.

I'm also tempted by all the cute Spring-y patterns that are coming out. Have you guys seen the new Twist Collective? I adore the Ardent Jacket and I would make it if I thought I could make one that looks as good. Of course, it would help if *I* looked as good as the model (who is, I believe, the girl who thought me how to spin last year).

I also really like Dulce de Leche, the sleepy monkey baby blanket (though I doubt I'll ever make it), jennie's toys, cherry fizz, Collette, Primrose path and all the socks.

Of course I also got the new Interweave Knits, and I love the Float Stole, Fountain Pen Shawl, Silk Cocoon Cardigan and Soap Bubble Wrap.

We'll see if I ever manage to start (and finish) one of them!

Yup, that's Leslie all right! I know what you mean about being hesitant to start a garment project. I've been less than successful with mine! :)

Ha ha, got a laugh out of the Sock-u Koivu Kal ... that's a good one!
