Inspiration overload

Holy crapcakes.... how is it Friday already?!? And I haven't posted since Sunday! I've been meaning post all week  - I just never got around to it.

Work has been crazy, and I've had several stories to do for the magazines I write for. I've also been getting busy, running around to get a passport for an upcoming trip to Virginia -boy is that a lot of hoops to jump through! And despite all that, I have had some time to knit - just not blog about it.

I actually have four new designs on the needles. Two are shawls - they've been packed away since the move, but I plan to dig them out this weekend and get moving on them.

The first is Mistress Anne.
 Beads, cables, lace - all in rich green Continental Cat. I really want to get moving on it. I don't have pictures of the second shawl - Egret - but it's a beautiful lacy confection knit in undyed Fluffy Cat.

Last weekend I was suddenly inspired to start a new sock design
 It's called Fergus and I'm knitting it in Twisted Top Cat.

And - I love my silk cardigan so much, I just have to knit another one...
 But I wanted different lace... and a lighter weight! Once again, I'm using undyed - but Slinky Cat. There's just something about natural lace -so feminine, so beautiful.... so perfect!

Man - when inspiration hits - it really hits all at once. If only I didn't need to keep a day job!

Those jobs can certainly get in the way. That's why retirement is so bliss!
