Startitis (again)

Man, do I ever have a case of startitis!  I have been fighting it, though.  Since I last wrote, I finished my Pyromania socks. They're a little on the tall side, but the foot fits great.  Here they are being blocked.


And here's the lace detail from the cuff.


They're knit from Scout's Superwash Merino, in Izvar.  This was the club yarn from December 2010.

I'm on the foot of the second Hedgerow sock, which have been on the needles for well over a year and a half - I began them as conference knitting in October 2009!  I swear I will finish them before I begin anything else.  Here's a reminder of what they look like:

Hedgerow Socks

They're knit from Malabrigo Sock in Persia.  They're nice and soft and squishy.  The one that's done fits perfectly.

Despite having a bunch of stuff on the needles (feel free to check out my Ravelry project page if you don't believe me!), I really want to start Curatio, probably in the Dream in Color Starry I showed you in my last post.  (Suddenly, I want to knit everything Kirsten Kapur designs!)

Or Amalia, in this lovely Malabrigo Sock in Alcaucil (not gray, not green -- a little of both).


Or, heaven help us all, Catkin (Rav link, because I can't find it elsewhere) in -- are you ready? -- orange and blue madelinetosh tosh sock!


That's the orange you saw last time, Citrus, but the blue is a different, somewhat less intense one, Baltic, that was in my stash. The orange will be the second color -- the top part and the "eyes" at the bottom, as well as the bottom edge.  The large middle section will be blue.  What do you think?  Too Illini? (Never!)

Because I need more shawls on the needles....

I love tall socks in the winter, when I'm wearing boots! They're gorgeous.

Orange and blue.... O.O

Why oh why did I follow the links, now I want to knit Catkin and Amalia. I have startitis myself I think, I really am feeling a new lace shawl in my future.
