Gonna have to face it, you're addicted to .... knitting

I think it's time for some kind of help or intervention. I got NO housework done over the weekend and, really, it's the only time I have to do it. Instead, I did this:

This is the back of SIZZLE. As you can see, the M1's left holes which I am not happy about. After doing some research, I figured out how to correct that problem but it's certainly too late now. The only good news is that this is the back and I won't do it on the front. I can't say enough good things about this Kertzer Butterfly yarn. (100% mercerized cotton) The drape is perfect. It just LOOKS good. Try it!

I also finished these:

Colin's highland socks. I wish I had time to make another pair of these. There are a few things I would do differently. But they are cute. This kid is going to look adorable in his little kilt and tux top. As I said previously, this outfit is supposed to be a surprise for the bride and last week, she mentioned to my daughter that it would be cute to find a highland outfit for him, too, for the wedding. My daughter told her that they already bought him an outfit to wear. She'll be surprised.

My sister really has the knitting bug. It's great because now I won't struggle with what to get her for birthdays and Christmas. When you have a knitter, there is no end to what you can get for gifts. We're going to plan a trip to Knit One soon and check that out.

Work will be interesting today. We are announcing a change at our sales meeting. Change always has an interesting effect on people. Some people embrace it and others condemn it. I already know who will be doing the embracing and who will be doing the condemning. I, for one, am going to embrace this change and see it as challenge to improve myself. Who knows, maybe I'll get so successful that I won't have to worry about doing the housework on the weekends and I can sit on my butt and knit away.... guilt free. I aspire to that. :-)

I like how your Sizzle is coming along so far. That yarn does produce a really nice drape.

My Sizzle yarn arrived over the weekend, but I'm still waiting for my e-check to clear to get the pattern. Have you encountered any tricky spots in the pattern yet, or is it pretty straightforward?
