Still doing too much. ><

Ok, so I DID cast off on that cuff. Then I decided "my hands are cold. I have no idea what to do with this skein..." TADAH! Fetching.

THEN I got a Box of Yarn! :D 10 balls of cotton that will become a baby blanket for Isabelle, the first member of the next generation on my dad's side of the family! I haven't seen pictures yet, but I'm sure she's very cute ^^ 11 balls of wool that will be sockses. I cast on for one of the pairs of sockses... worsted on size 1 needles!? That's crazy- like a very thick, very warm-feeling socktoe. However, I need to go to Knitty Gritty and buy more needles in general, and more size 1s in particular. And/or resurrect Vinnland so I can get them off the needles. But I do need a few straights for that blanket, so I'll do that.

Also got a package from the Budapest Semesters, and I may stay there and never come back purely because of their chocolate. They sent a bar that was like eating a perfectly blended hazelnut mocha. *bliss*

I need more 1's as well... do yours start looking like they're going to die a horrible splintery death as fast as mine do? (Although the real reason I need to buy them is because I need them for Dad-socks and Hedera is on them.)

I can't imagine doing worsted on 1's, though, haha... and now I kinda want to try.

My problem is that 1. they bend and 2 I step on/sit on/otherwise maul them. The LYS has some powdercoated ones (can't quite tell if they're metal or plastic), and I knit a little bit on them last night. At $3.50 for a packet of 4 DPNs, I may have to spend an irresponsible amount of money on them when I go to get some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Jungle Stripe for the Stepheroonie. Apparently someone else thinks the godawful combination of lime green and purple would look good striped! :O
