Ugh! First I peruse my blogroll and come upon Cookie’s stunning new sock patterns. I fall head over heels in love with the one knit in purple Louet Gems…only to find that it won’t be available online for a good 6 weeks. Oh, if only Stitches West wasn’t all the way on the other side of the country, I would soooo be there — just to grab a copy of the pattern (okay, I’d probably pay for it…and maybe look at a few other things…).
The pattern reminds me of La Digetessa from Yarnissima, so I decide, what the heck — do I have some tax refund cash to spend or not? The fates must have something else in mind, though, because her entire site is down! Grrr….
Okay, maybe it’s a sign I should stop looking at new things to knit & knit the things I already have, huh? 😉
