Trying to be faithful

The craft store was out of the thread I need for the lace wedding dress, so while I wait for it to arrive, I'm working on my project spectrum sweater. Lately I've been trying knitting monogamy. I WILL NOT knit anything else until I finish my Nothin but a T-shirt! Not to mention this is part of a KAL with Lauren (fastest knitter ever), so I really have to focus on this and only this to keep up with her.

But, there's nothing wrong with a little fling on the side, right? If it's totally harmless? What if they're really cute? I can't knit these for long periods of time anyway because my hands get all sweaty and the yarn is IMPOSSIBLE to work with once that happens. The pattern is peek-a-boo socks from Spun Magazine & I'm using Cascade Fixation. Just FYI, this pattern blows. Next time I will use another anklet pattern & use this one once I get to the toes.

This is what Rocco has been up to lately. He got fresh wheat grass from Petsmart & he is ecstatic. He likes it when I use the squirt bottle to mist it a little and make it all dewey.

Am I crazy?

After weeks of searching for the perfect little sundress to wear for my wedding, I said, "screw it, I'm just gonna make one." So far I found this:

I really like crocheting. Even better than knitting. I think that is a necessity when embarking on something of this magnitude. I already have yarn picked out thanks to Erica, so I guess there's no turning back now, huh? The up side is that if I don't like it, I can just resume the search and I'm only out $50 worth of yarn. So, am i just totally nuts? Bridezillla?
