Irrational desire

Somebody stop me from trying to practice provisional cast on and starting the Union Market Sweater. I have a really strong desire to try it now. Must…. resist…. and stick…. to silk…. Stash… reduction… will continue… later….
To help prevent the stash reduction – can someone suggest some really lush 4 ply yarn to use for some lacey socks? I have some DB baby cash to use on a cardi which might leave something spare, but I’m not sure if it would be too splitty. The RYC cashsoft is tempting after the Harrogate show tho. I just fancy trying something that isn’t specifically sock yarn but is soft and cosy and lovely to knit with. And I want to make the socks for me, and the only sock yarn I have in the stash is variegated and doesn’t have a pattern to claim it yet. But it will. Ohhhhh it will.
In other news: mmmmmmm, roule light. Yum.
