For Shizzle, Indeed*

Cast-on fever rages at the sanctuary. Feathers are flying, needles are clacking and yarn is continually being gobbled up by the half-done project monster that I have become.
I shall warn you to beware this beast, especially if you happen to be a "destination" knitter, rather than a "journey" one. The unfulfilled hunger for an FO is draining me brain.
(though to be entirely honest, I have completed one project, but it's too ugly and shameful to post about).

Unnecessary photo of the Anne Elliot in action.

The patently promiscuous purler that now inhabits my mind has screamed out to me "you must find a project for every yarn! Stash with a purpose!"
Since I obey shouting, booming internal voices (oh so authoritative), I've decided to try my hand at a load of self-designed patterns. I'm sure much frustration will be borne from this decision, I also hope there will be beautiful demonstrations of destashing ecstasy, and pursuant to this, thorough justification for the (at least two) anticipatory stash enhancement expeditions.

Marigolds - my favourite flowers.
While I didn't grow this marigold from seed, I'm still proud I haven't killed it. There has been a freak living-streak for the plants here at the sanctuary. More to follow.

*methinks perhaps only one person may understand this post title. I'm looking in your general direction, Foxy.

I understand the title, fo' shizzle. But its "FO" Shizzle. Which works for knitters I would think. You're ebonics need work my friend.

Haha, yes, the FO would have been apropos! I must admit to a "slim-to-nil" knowledge of, or ability to pull off any appearance of a knowledge of ebonics.
I was going for a deliberate "I'm so uncool I'm cool" vibe.
The vibe clearly doesn't travel too far.
BTW, I love the new avatar pic. You look so happy!
