I confess, I am addicted to design blogs and check out many of my favourites on a daily basis. Design Sponge is defintiely one of my favourites- great range of ideas and price points, and I love their recipe Fridays and DIY Wednesdays. And then every now and then, a batch of knitted goodness is served up: I love it. I feel like you could knit a cozy for every single thing in your home, and as long as it was plain white, it would look fresh and modern. It currently retails for $429.00 here. I can't imagine how a clock cozy could cost that much, but hey, we're all fairly used to the bizarre and extreme markups on knitted goods, aren't we?? ;) On the home front: I'm learning to crochet, still slaving away at a giant green sweater, and planning my wedding. Details on all of the above coming soon!

I WANT A CLOCK COZY! I bet one could even make real roman numerals with some fancy ribbing/cabling. I'm totally going to think about this while I'm supposed to be working today. :)

Learning to crochet - good for you! Can't wait to see some crocheted FO's.
