Monday was March 1st, which means I got to open another yarn from the Biscotte & Cie sock club, which means I have serious temptation to glance away from the sweater I'm knitting as fast as I can for Kathi, about which I will tell you more tomorrow. Probably.
But I will be strong!
Because I am a woman of my word and there are only so many hours in the day and I stick to my deadlines and am not easily distracted even when there's chocolate to hand okay I'm lying about that one, I pretty much drop everything for chocolate and isn't it a good thing there isn't any in the house just now? etc.
Here's the thing: I have such a weakness for this particular lace stitch that is sometimes called candle flame or leaf or something similar and - totally leaving aside that I love this yarn and this shade of green makes me weak at the knees - the sock pattern that came with it, Spring Sprout by Jeannie Cartmel, is made up of that very stitch.
Can. You. Believe it.
Good thing Kathi's sweater is such a dream to knit, is all I can say...
