Sleeve Archipelago

I've been trying to satisfy the product knitter side of myself by focusing on the sleeves on my 2 sweater WIP's,

but it's hard to stay motivated and not get some knitting malaise.

Hopefully this totally fun Woolgirl Sock Club kit will help.

And this STR haul definitely will! I was so excited I didn't even bother finding the best lighting out in the yard to take a pic (northern backyard lighting kinda sucks anyway). I even went so far as ordering the same colorway in a different fiber.

And not only did I break this self-imposed rule when buying Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarn once, but I did it twice:

The Luscious Single Silk (LSS) on the left is intended for a Shetland Triangle made famous in knitter blogland by this gorgeous version. Shall I wind and cast on, away from the Sleeve Isles?

OOOOOOOooooohhhh...slobber, slobber! WHAT?! You didn't post pics of my stuff, too! Not only is my connection still down, but I can't find my camera! I hope you don't mind my stealing your photo (woolgirl kit)-I'll make sure i credit you!

Last week I placed an itty bitty STR order, and now I'm kicking myself for not ordering the Mossay or Dutch Canyon. Or Mochaberry LSS. Oh well! I'll just drool over yours!!! Get moving on those sleeves so you can knit some socks!!

Now I really have to make a STR purchase! That silk is going to PERFECT for the Shetland Triangle.

But stay focused. You'll be happier knitting the shawl when you're done with the sleeves. (oh, who am I kidding?)
