I didn’t sleep well last night or today. I finally managed to get some sleep around noon and slept till, oh, about 5pm. I really hate days when I can’t sleep.
But on the flip side … I have yarn porn!!!
My KnitPicks order showed up yesterday! I ordered three skeins of Palette so that I can start working on the Civil War socks. Then, they had some Felici on sale, so I had to grab that up!
And here’s what I purchased last Friday while in Charlottesville. Note … the blue isn’t for me. My friend, Tim, is trying to enhance his yarn stash, and this stuff just called out his name from the bargain bin! I picked up a skein of Mountain Colors Mountain Goat in Moose Creek, as well as two skeins of one of my favorites – Noro Cash Iroha (in red!)
Remember me mentioning Chan’s taking me to the shop that carried all things cat? Well here’s some cat action, with the cat nip toys that she bought for the kids.
Cooley got the carrot, and Mavy the cigar.
And lastly … my latest FO!
- Project name : Goth Cables
- Pattern : Evangeline by Michelle Szeghalmi
- Yarn : Cascade 220, in black
I fell in love with this pattern the moment I saw it, and just had to have a pair. It was very easy and a pleasure to knit, so I wouldn’t be suprised if I make more. There is a long version and a short version, and mine are somewhere in the middle.
