Startistis and its cure

I had an attack of conscience the other day and updated the OTN list (to the left and down a bit, yep, that's it, lovely, mmm... oh, sorry).

It was sobering to list these projects, mostly small ones and realise that startitis can be operating on such a deep level that it's almost imperceptible. Just another sock or hat seems small enough at the time, and is usually justifiable here in the Sophistry Room at Chez Taph, but they all have to be finished sometime.

So at Chez Taph much effort is going into finishing a few things before taking up needles again for new stuff. This is going to be a difficult resolve to stick to this week as I have 15 balls (shut up) of Opal sock yarn (shut up some more) arriving. Tell me you wouldn't have done the same thing at 75% off then shut up!

Celebrate with me, though, the completion of the Nicky Epstein Eat Your Heart Out Flower brooch and the Siberian Railway Hat, formerly known as the Porridge Hat.

I'll post details and pics later.

15 BALLS?! I think we're going to have to organise a little midnight stash raid at your place, Taph... LOL!

Okay, okay - good bargain hunting, and well done. And now I'm shutting up ;)
