that itchy feeling

I had now sooner put the new socks on my feets when I got that itchy i-must-knit-something feeling. I have 3 skeins of this beautiful silk/wool blend that I got at PurlSoho and I've been dying to knit it up. I can't find a pattern I like tho. I thought it was worsted weight and was going to make booties from OneSkein, but its DK weight and i'm not sure I can do the math to make them work. I had some craftstore cheapie red yarn left over from another project so I casted on the booties. I'm not sure how they'll turn out, they may be a bit too big in the cuff. Cables tend to expand, but we'll see how it goes. Anything to get the itch outta the fingers!!!

You didn't tell me you have this book! I applaud your desire to keep knitting but those fabric squares are suffering from neglect.
