I worked on my Oceanic socks, and I've finished the first and started the second. I'm not even halfway to the heel, though... Hopefully, I'll get a lot of good knitting time this weekend so I can finish these and then start on a new pair, because I got new yarn!
I updated my stash on Ravelry tonight, because I have had a lot of enhancements in the past month, but didn't get around to adding them. First, Christmas present yarn!
Shiny pink yarn from Colby and David! They know me well ;) It's from XrayAnn's Etsy shop, and it's a superwash merino/nylon blend with sparkle. It's going to be my next pair of socks, and I can't wait.
Next, souvenir yarn:
I found some gorgeous lace yarn while I was up visiting my family at Christmas, and now I'm on the hunt for the perfect shawl pattern.
I also got some prize yarn:
Green and sparkly, from Jen of the Commuter Knitter podcast. I can't decide if it will grow up to be socks (it's a merino/nylon blend) or a shawl. I'm leaning towards socks.., and matching handwarmers.
I also got club yarn, thanks to my sister who got into the Sunnydale Yarn Club from Dizzy Blonde Studios:
I'm excited to start this, but I'm not sure if it'll be socks or handwarmers or a hat or a shawl, or something else entirely.
And then there was yarn because I found new yarn shops:
These came from the Cast-On Cottage and Needlepoint Garden in Roswell, Ga, and will be a gift for my sister... So you may not hear any more about them until she gets the finished object!
And finally, I got two skeins today, because it's Thursday:
I'm turning into such a Malabrigo fan! I've already started working with it for a secret project on Ravelry, and also a pair of handwarmers for myself. I also got a skein of Koigu, but I somehow forgot to take a photo of it. It's super-bright, and will eventually become socks.
Wow. I think, maybe, it's time for a yarn diet...
