Thrashing Tuesday

Hmmm. I don't know. I like it better w/o ear flaps. Maybe it'll look better on M's head?

So, done w/the body of the DB Molly bolero. Read the instructions of needing to pick up & knit 214(!) stitches along the front edges and neck for the ribbed edging last night and my eyes promptly glazed over. I've put it aside for now (aka not bringing it to work for my lunchtime knitting) 'til I'm mentally prepared to tackle this little chore. Either that or pick & knit the ribbed cuffs & lower back edge so I can keep progressing. All I know is that the Knitpicks button blue shine worsted yarn I had set aside for DD2's Molly bolero is going to something else instead. Maybe this:

Oh, and look, a matching mommy sweater:

Otherwise, here's my knitting project wishlist until I get around to learning how to put these in the sidebar:
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTreid.html - not sure if I'm ready for lace
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTdoublescoop.html - too cute!
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTkyoto.html - for meeee!
http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTsoleil.html - did I mention I love knitty.com?
http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id97.html - for sis, but not in that blue
http://www.magknits.com/Aug05/picovoli.htm - a custom fit tee!
http://www.whiteliesdesigns.com/patterns/lpullovers/fbc.html - or a custom-fit tank?

In the meantime, I'm plugging away on my-so-called-scarf and swatching my single Plymouth Wildflower DK yarn in fugly #76 Olive for the One Skein baby hat maybe. Also need to swatch my Debbie Bliss cotton cashmere skein for a One Skein single cable scarf. Also a maybe.

Oh, yeah. I need to find some yarn for that or swatch what I have so I can choose colors.
