I haven't posted since Tuesday! What's up with that? Pesky work getting in the way of The Mighty Momogus! Did you miss me??? Well, let's see what's been going on.....

Discipline thy name IS Diana! Look, I've knit almost 16" of BCP sleeve (twice!). Only 2" left before cap shaping and I shalt be blessedly finished with sleevage:

The Tangled Web brought in Malabrigo yarn this fall, and it is TO DIE FOR. It's as yummy-looking as Manos, but it's crazy-soft and gorgeous to work with and way more yardage for $3 less a skein. So yes I succumbed to its siren call and brought this home:

I'm thinking simple cap or mittens. I am cursed with a fierce love of making mittens, but having only one pair of hands. Watch out, friends and family - I feel Mitten Frenzy coming on!!

Speaking of mittens, I cannot bring myself to cast on for the second Orca Mitten. I need you, my readers, to shame me into making that second mitten. C'mon, bring on the blog pressure!! Bring on the guilt!

Make the mitten! We need pictorial evidence that orcas are not endangered. The malabrigo (oh I love that stuff and I love that you're carrying it at TTW, because I LOVE IT) can wait. Oh it can. No really, it can.

You're right, Stuntmother - why would I want to make a yummy darling hat with the yummiest yarn on the planet when I could be pre-felting with my own sweat the most complicated mitten ever fashioned by mankind???

Oh wait, I really do love Charlie - I better cast on.....
