from the desk of katkoe - sleep, what that?

okay after several weeks worth of 5:30 am wake up calls I'm pretty much worthless in the brain functionality department. fear not, knitting and crafting has occurred, even new stuff has been skimming across my desk.

if a good nights' sleep ever comes my way again I'll be sure to include the highlights ;) along with photos, misplaced demos and general shop whoring.

sweet dreams.

from the desk of katkoe - time suck can be so pretty

Those sweet little wooden tooth picks look so cute and innocent, then wham, you're staying up for hours knitting around and around trying to finish just one more row. Because after all you're soooo close to finished, so close... sweater denial is so much easier to ignore.

Well, I actually finished these beauties at midnight-ish today/yesterday EST (reference: loud a** jammies). The big push to finish came from a Ravelry Group Sock-a-Long featuring the goodness that is

The blue socks above where knit using the Lacy Ribs pattern from Wendy's book "Socks from the Toe Up" using some of my hand dyed stash in "Icy".

Love, love, love this pattern for it's 4 row repeat and extra stretchiness. Be sure to get gauge or just go down a foot size, depending on your tolerance for adventure, to compensate for the extra give.

other than that I'm boring, working and doing okay *fingers crossed*
