update: Spiral Rib Bag  
I'm almost done with the Spiral Rib Bag I posted about yesterday.  I think it's going to be really cute!  (I'll post pictures when I'm not in class.)  Talk about instant gratification knitting!!

Except, not quite, becuase I ran out of yarn when I was almost done with the ruffle that forms the top of the bag, so now I have to either (a) go out and get another skein just to complete the ruffle and knit a few feet of i-cord or (b) tear out an inch or so of the top of the bag so I'll have enough yarn to finish.

Not that another skein of Blue Sky Cotton would go unused for long, but it's the principle of the thing.  I like the efficiency of finishing something with one skein, especially when that's the theme of the book!  On the other hand, I hate frogging things when they're going well.  I'm as much of a perfectionist as the next knitter, and I'm content to frog and re-knit things that aren't working out, but I really can't stand tearing out mistake-free rows.  Like re-writing from memory something that's been lost as opposed to editing something extant.

Oh, the knitterly frustration

(hmmm... maybe my mommy will buy me yarn when she comes into town this weekend.  There's a store on 79th I've been meaning to check out.  Then again, probably not her idea of an exciting Sunday afternoon...)

unrelated: don't you just love how the little "tired" icon yawns every few seconds?  I do.
