Impulsive Knitting

My knitting friend recently declared 2007 to be "The Year of Impulsive Knitting", this said as she prepares to wave good-bye to 2006 -- "The Year of No Sleeves".  nona can relate to the lure of the impulsive.  My Petals Collection Autumn Foliage socks -- poised for cast on -- have been placed back in the queue as I impulsively cast on a pair of Pomatomus using some Shibui sock yarn from my stash.  How can you expect me to resist after seeing these and these?

Thank you to Sophie for mentioning these wonderful Pomatomus tipless gloves.  Now I have to decide, gloves or socks -- the fun never ends, does it!?

I'm completely over the moon for this pattern in solid(ish) yarns. I dropped (almost) everything to start it and am sailing along.

Yours are going to be gorgeous.

What a delicate colour! Have you seen the fingerless pomatomus gloves? More impulsive knitting ahead:

Yay! More poms! Yours are going to be lovely...that yarn reminds me of home-made chocolate milk when I haven't stirred the syrup in very well. *slurp*

Most of my knitting is impulsive! The pattern looks nice so far in the color you've chosen

Gorgeous yarn and color. I'm thinking gloves, so you can admire them without having to look down every few seconds. :-)

I think 5 posted the exact same idea. There is no doubt, do not have any means possible to get rid off one of my systems with the experts say? Thanks!
