I bit the bullet and set up a myspace page, mine's at http://www.myspace.com/needlesofsteel if you are interested. There's a pic of me at last year's Godiva festival, baking alive in the Greenspace tent. Some folk had already taken the steelbreeze and steel_breeze names, which I wouldn't mind, but they are doing nowt wi' 'em!
Still working on the cotton sock - need to create a good 4" welt, because otherwise they'll never stay up. Quite like the way the colour's pooling on the welt - it's green-red-yellow-turquoise. Discovered Julie and I share an "affliction" last night - hereby named "Loud Yarn Syndrome" - if it's loud, or has lots of colours, it'll end up going home with me. She was working on "One Skein Scarf" (Happy Hooker), in something that looked very like the loud Sirdar they've got in our LYS. They've got a couple different colour schemes, too - pinks n blues, autumn shades in this yarn. It's just cheap acrylic, too - but the colours, oh the colours! Usually this affliction (for me, anyway) is combined with "One Ball Syndrome" - you don't feel you can justify getting more than one ball, not having a project in mind, so you amass a collection of single balls - which is even more useless, unless you've a big glove fetish or have more arms than an octopus.
The annual mad burst of Start-itis has died down, now I'm in the "I should really finish that project before I start something else" funk. Ugh.
Next week it's needle-felting - must remember to pack a hard-backed book, or wear two pairs of jeans! :)
Trying to resist taking a day off next week and buying more stash - LYS has a jumper's worth of hot magenta DK going for a song, would make my niece (or me) a lovely jumper! This KFYS thing is HARD!
