eye candy

sooo i caught myself thinking and planning holiday knits recently.


but before you flick me upside the head remember the magic word is that i caught myself. i know i know! we're barely into summer and here i am thinking about the cold weather.
i can't really help it though. being a knitter is time consuming, and we really have to plan out our projects. i'm hoping to do markets again this year, so that means some serious planning on upping my stock. (as currently, i have very little). but before you get your panties all in a twist, i am thinking lots of lovely summer knits too. lace, and fingering weights, lots of airy knits and socks!
because those are always easy to carry around :)
i really want to hang on to as much as i possibly can this summer. with my little man starting kindergarten in september (don't worry.. i'm saving the breakdown until at least the end of august) i want to enjoy this time. we have lots planned for the summer. we're actually going on 2 pretty big trips that we're uber excited about!
i do have a few lovlies planned here for while i'll be away though.
but let's get back to the current season, m'kay?
want to know what i can't get enough of these days? bright, cheerful colours!

i'm especially excited about some very bright and colourful sock yarns.... like this one:

ummm isn't it amazing??? it's from this etsy shop. and it's definitely on my radar. actually any of the colourways for this yarn i'm totally on board for .... just sayin'.

what about you? what's your current yarn eye candy? are you into some sock knitting these days? are you enjoying your upcoming summer? tell me you have actually thought about winter knits already though... so i'm not the only one :) xo
