Weekend Favorites

I have a bunch of pattern/tutorial ideas floating through my head these days.

Actually, if we’re being honest here, it’s more like they are bouncing animatedly around my brain at 3am, fueled by too much pre-bedtime caffeine.  The other night, I actually got out of bed and wrote them down, both because some of them were actually good, and because I thought maybe committing them to paper (er, tablet) would release them from my poor cluttered, sleepy head.

It worked a little bit, head-wise, but better than that, I now have a nice little list of projects I am kind of excited about. The hardest part is going to be figuring out what to do first! October may be the month of the striped loom-knit armwarmers. Or maybe the sewn charm pack scarves. Decisions, decisions…
