First of all, I cast on for the second Facade sock. Only got 6 rows past the ribbing, but at least now it's started and will hopefully tempt me to pick it up again soon.
However, I was going to a friend's place to play games last Saturday, and didn't really feel like bringing along a WIP where I'd have to stop and look at the pattern all the time, and instead of bringing along the cowl I was already working on (don't ask me why...) I decided to cast on for the hitchhiker! Granted, I HAVE been wanting to knit this for ages, and have even had the specific yarn for several months too, so I figure it was just about time to get started on it. I can fully see how knitting this could get addictive. It's very potato-chip'y.
But mostly, I've been knitting on the Wombat blanket that I started this fall. I had all kinds of crazy plans that I wanted to have it ready for this winter, but then put it aside for some reason (can't even remember why any longer) and just never got around to picking it back up again! Well, I decided to remedy that, and am now well past the pouch for my feet and actually probably only have another 30cm or so to go before it'll be long enough. But I do think I'll like it more if rather than going for "long enough" I go for "as long as I can get it before I run out of yarn, so we'll see.
