Or mind. Something's wandering, that's all I know. I'm sort of flip-floppingly figuring out what I want to knit for the Olympics. And it's in a few days. I'm so so so screwed. If I don't find something I really really want to knit, I'm never going to get through it. I sort of don't want to knit lace, because lace turns into something that goes around your neck, and I don't really have a neck. The less accent to that, the better. Unless it's really freaking cold, and it's not. Everyone is flipping out about the freezing cold weather today, and so I have to wear a jacket to avoid the looks. You know? Otherwise I'm explaining all day long that I'm from Wisconsin and they're all a bunch of pussies. Except I'm too nice to do that, so the tension from wanting to tell them they're all a bunch of pussies and then to yell at the next guy to STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT, I'M NOT THE FREAK IN THIS HUMAN-INTERACTION-SCENARIO, IT IS YOU, FELLA, FOR LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT WHEN I DON'T KNOW YOU FROM ADAM!!!

Ok, so here's the deal. I just got some yarns in the mail, and I think they might skew my judgement a little bit. Check it out:
They are the most softest, most silkiest yarns you ever did see. If the Linus had his way, he'd be humping them all day long. And he wouldn't ever stop, not even if the fuzzy blue slipper teased him for a million years.
The yarns are 50% merino (which is like, the softest kind of wool ever) and 50% silk. Which might explain the silkiness. I'm no scientist. But aren't they pretty? They are. When I put them together like that, it's sort of an ugly Hornets ripoff, but seperate they're going to be divine. In seperate projects. Of knitting. Which will never be worn together.
Actually, that isn't really the color of the purple/red. This one is more realistic:
And hey! The blue/green looks better than that in person, too. But I have no pictures of it looking right. You'll have to make do with what I show you, though. So, yeah. Looking for a good project for one of those colors.
Any ideas? I have ~280 yards of the purple/red, and ~320 yards of the blue/green. No scarves!
