it's way past midnight...

and I'm still knitting. Actually, I just started knitting. About an hour ago, I just finished cleaning out the closet, packing up all the cold weather clothes and arranging boxes for Good Will. So after several glasses of sweet southern style iced tea, I'm wide awake and knitting and catching up on all the knit blogs. I'm so glad tomorrow is a holiday. Not only do I get another day to sleep late but it also means there are only 4 workdays until the weekend. Yay!

In the past week, I've been to three LYS in Northern Virginia. Capital Yarns, Aylin's Woolgatherer and today I stopped by Knit Happens. Not a bad week, eh? I couldn't resist the lure of Koigu and trekked over to Knit Happens today. I came home with a couple of skeins of this...

It's such lovely place. I really must go there more often. I was able to see Wendy's Inishmore in person. Of course, as I was behind on my blog reading, I didn't realize it was the sweater until I came home. I can only dream of knitting that quickly. I can't even finish a scarf in 9 days.

Anyway, there is proof that I've been knitting this week. Tempting...

I love your tempting! What yarn are you using?

I used to live in Northern VA. I grew up in Manassas and miss it every day. One day I will move back!
