knitting dork

I know this is a/ dorky and b/ time wasting, but I've got to tell ya something.

Although I've got, like, 5 knitting projects on the go:

1- legwarmers for myself
2- legwarmers for AM (that I promised her ages ago)
3- octopus for C (got 4 legs done so far)

...okay, 3...whatever...the point is that although I've got these on the go and want to start a few more, I had a serious hankerin' for a new toque.

Not just ~any~ toque...no sir.

I pulled out a skein of my most expensive wool (unfortunately not featured anywhere on that website, but it's the same place). It is 75% wool, 25% silk and 100% delicious! It's a sorta stripey yarn...died different colours throughout and let me tell you...I CANNOT stop knitting this hat! I'm like this:

...oh my god, I love that shade of brown...gorgeous...wait! Wait! Is that hot hot hot pink coming up? ohhh..what are they going to look like together? Here it comes...OOOHhhhh! It's beautiful! Is that orange I see? What a crazy and brilliant orange! Here it comes...bam! So pretty! ...

and so forth...

So...then! Then! I made the mistake/incredible discovery of looking at the INSIDE of my hat in good light! It's like a flavour sensation for my eyes! I can't stop staring at the inside of this g-damn hat!

Completely at the mercy of this yarn.

Thing is..I've got no time for this. None. But I"m like putty in it's fibres.

No problem, Ian. I just felt it to be very unfair. I'm glad it's solved, though (as far as GOTR has posted).

As for you, LMCT...*blush*

aaannnddd...guess what?? I ripped the whole hat out! It's back to a ball of yarn and about 3 rows of a slightly smaller hat.

dang...that hurt.
