Obviously, stress translates into retail therapy and startitis. Granted my hex coat is floating somewhere in lala land, a baby blanket is almost done, I started a pair of socks a week ago, and last night cast on for a completely different pair.

Oh-so my retail therapy included purchasing two skeins of Claudia Handpainted in Just Plum.

This was a temptation purchase. I have never knit with Claudia and I am enjoying the yarn. I think that I will be purchasing more in some brighter colors (Limeade, Sherbet, Jungle, to name a few).

This is where I am now.

Don't think I am a super fast knitter, today I had a day off. I zoned out to a Clean House marathon (I love Niecy Nash) and then spent an hour at sbux with a Grande Caramel Macchiato (damn I love that drink!).

Back to knitting and Shaun of the Dead (I love Simon Pegg), then onto Project Runway!

Woah! That seems fast to me. Looks like the plum therapy is working.

Shaun of the Dead followed by Project Runway strikes me as an absolutely perfect double feature. You could have made it a triple by adding Hot Fuzz for full Pegg-iness glory.

So what'd you think of PR's finale?

Excellent therapy! I hope the stress lessens, too.

Just Plum is just great. Shaun of the Dead & Project Runway are a perfect combo. I fell asleep before the end of Project Runway last night so I don't know who won yet! Rami or Christian? I'm betting it wasn't Jillian.

Yum, That's just what I like at sbux. There's one right next door to the post office I go to everyday, I've been resisting & have only gone once since Christmas.

Love that colour.

Beautiful sock! Don't feel bad about your purchases. When I'm stressed, I indulge in retail therapy, but I hoard rather than knitting up my new treasures. You have the right idea.
