I Have A Problem!

I think I have a problem... Have decided I like to start things, and buy yarn! Keep starting new projects or finding new ones to start and never really accomplish anything. A new box of sock yarn came today from Little Knits and last week a box of yarn and patterns from Patternworks. At this rate, nothing will ever be finished!

On a positive note, I did finish a pair of socks today. They are done toe-up on 2 circs with Knit Picks Swish Superwash in Merlot Heather. Used size 2 (3.0) needles... which means they will basically stand up all by themselves. It's okay, wanted a pair of really heavy boot type socks for cold weather BUT we will not discuss the fact that the first day of spring is this week or how long it took to finish this pair!!!! At least they will be finished for next winter!

I also started another pair of socks today made with JL Vinca yarn on size 0 needles. Not sure if I like the yarn, it is a little bit splitty and quickly creates a "halo". Now if I can get the heels turned on another pair, they will be done in no time and free up my needles for more.. or maybe I should order more needles from Knit Picks! Mmmm!
