Less miserable than last week, possibly even approaching cautious optimism.
The Butterscotch Cardigan from the current issue of Interweave Crochet. That's right -- I said Interweave Crochet.* It's just an awesome looking cardi, and I love that it's made with thin yarn. For me, eight skeins of LL Shepherd Sock is a pretty pricey purchase, but I'm going to treat myself once I finish writing. (The laceweight purchases were to ease the pain of the process; the Shepherd Sock will be the reward. Totally different!)
The pattern for the Ernie Sweater is reproduced in this month's Bust magazine -- cheaper than buying the book if you just want a simple raglan sweater pattern.
* I know, I know -- you just read it for the articles...
