I'm starting to develop a stash.

There aren't enough hours in the day. I've been suspecting this for a long time, but it's now confirmed. I am having to force myself to sleep because I want to stay up and keep crafting. And let me tell you, I'm not complaining because there are times that knitting sounds like torture.

I cast on for Annis the other night at 3am. Three hundred and sixty-three stitches! I kind of like that you are starting with the maximum number of stitches and losing them as you go, as opposed to most shawls where you're getting exponentially bigger as you work. No photos yet.

I stashed four balls of this today. (KnitPicks Palette in Mustard) I'm tempted to turn it into a shawl, but I know I'll never wear it. Hopefully it will become a sweater, just like it's fraternal twin that I have in green. (Knit Picks Palette in Grass)

The stumbling block? The fact that I am so picky about patterns that I'm going to have to design it myself. I am literally just too lazy to do the math.
