I have been knitting - these are Fleece Artist Sea Wool Bordello Socks in Amethyst. I love, love, love this yarn! It's heavier than regular sock yarn so it's a quick knit. They have a beautiful sheen to them. The yarn came in and went out - there's still a few skeins left - but only about 10 out of the 74 that I got. There's already another big order that's been placed.
I've given up on most of my socks without partners! I've cleaned out my knitting bag and have re-filled it with yarn I'm taking to Florida. There's Fleece Artist Merino Sock, Socks that Rock February yarn, Yarn Pirate in Isobel, a surprise one that I'm hoping to get for the shop, one skein of Louets in Pink Panther to finish my Adare Manor and uh.....oh yeah! my own February Sock Club Kit! Do you think that's enough? I'm worried that I will want to knit something but won't have it.
This is what Sarah and Meghan and I did last night. It's official I am now a commercial account with Canada Post - which interestingly, does not save me a dime on shipping, but does give me these lovely canvas bags to pack my boxes in for pick up. That's right, they pick them up from me, instead of me trudging to the post office with garbage bags full of boxes. And I have to admit - it was getting a bit embarassing lugging 3 or 4 or sometimes 5 or 6 garbage bags out of the car, across the parking lot into the post office. A couple of times there were so many, I actually took them to more than one post office.
