So sick. Oh, and I bought some new needles.

Hello, everyone. I realize I have been a little lax on the whole blogging thing lately. I really need to get up off my ass, quit knitting, and take some pictures of all of these socks. For that, I apologize.

Anyway, if ever there was an excuse...I have one this week. Let's just say that I think I've lost 15 pounds in 2 days. Enough said? YUCK. So, I've been out sick from work for two days, much to my dismay. My new job is definitely keeping me busy (that's the way I like it!)!!

But, I did manage to find some time to buy some new needles:



Yes, I realize that I knit socks, and not lace, but pointier, golden addis with a red cord??? Let's just say I couldn't resist. I purchased mine from Little Knits, but I also just found that Yarnzilla has them (cheaper? I'm not sure...their shipping might be more), as well.

I've also been lusting, badly, after this (Jake, you can stop reading now):


That's a Namaste Jetsetter knitting bag. The Haus of Yarn had one in stock a few weeks ago when I was there, and it was all I could do to not grab it. I had one of their frequent buyer cards filled up, so I had a $25 dollar credit, too...that I spent on yarn instead. Idiot!! Oh, well. At least it was some Colinette.

But I work at a knitting store and it took me months of forcing myself not to buy the Namaste Jetsetter, until recently I broke and HAD to. I got it in avocado and adoooooore it!!!
