Casting on fever

Taking my cue from Knit Devil's Feel Like a Floozy KAL for January, I have the following projects on my needles:

The (possibly previously) mentioned Paul Attwell Socks:

A Selbu for Nikki:

Another pair of Rock and Weave Socks in Hot Flash (but I so want to call the colourway Hot Flush) for Liza:

Blackrose Socks in the much cast on and frogged Midnight Meadows Sundara sock yarn:

In in a fit of complete indulgence, I am awaiting the arrival of some red Classic Elite yarn to cast on my big project for the year - Bijou. It features lots of terrifying things, like short row bust darts. But I've decided as part of my New Year's Resolutions that I will read the pattern before I cast on so I dont repeat the chain of events that lead me to make my son into a hunch back.

Oh, the Selbu looks great - those colours work so well.

That is totally Hot Flush yarn, you must rename it!

And I think you've got a winner with Blackrose and Sundara.

Love the Bijou. Can't wait to see yours...

Dudette! How the h-e-double toothpicks did I miss this post?! You were in a casting on FRENZY when I was and I missed it. Gah. *taking myself to time out*

Okay, I'm back now. LoveloveLOVE your Blackroses. And your Selbu is wild and beautiful. AND your Bijou is gonna kick all sorts of major ass! *hyperventilates*

Hugs, mon amie. I'm off to Rav to check out your project pages....
