It's Crunch Time!

There has been some knitting going on...surprisingly enough with all the packing and washing taking place at the same time! There are my Socks that Rock February Sock Kit - you will notice that they are not knitted in the pattern that they arrived with. That's because I'm not as dedicated as Sarah about keeping sock kits and patterns together and also because....well, they resembled something that I just rather not wear on my foot. You can get the idea here from the Yarn Harlot. They do however, look nice when finished as you can see here but still....










These are Fleece Artist Merino in a Painted Yarns pattern. Virginia van Santen not only painted amazing yarn but she designed excellent patterns as well. I love how this pattern blends the colors.

The pattern is called Eyelet Rib and is very simple to knit. I love patterns that are intricate looking but simple to do, don't you?

These are on the way from SKNITches! The self striping has been delayed so I got Bebop instead.

Lots of new stuff is arriving while I'm on vacation which just about drives me crazy! I love opening the new boxes of yarn. There will be no updates on the website for two weeks and no orders shipped either.

The big updates you can expect are Duets, Spinning Bunny, Claudia, Seacoast plus.....there's new stuff on order. But it's a surprise!

Connie, that picture of the sock on Yarn Harlot's blog just made my day. I rarely get a real belly laugh, but that did it! The FA sock is lovely. I think I have that colorway--is it Rose Garden? Have a wonderful vacation. Can't wait to see all the new pretties when you get back.

Both socks look great & it's really a wonder that you can still find time to knit before going on a vacation. Have a wonderful time!

That is a lovely pattern (eyelet rib) and very pretty FA too. I don't keep my kit yarn and patterns together either - I like to walk on the wild side :)!

You instigator you!! I had to read an excerpt from "The Other Boleyn Girl" on Amazon - and then had to immediately go buy it at Borders along with "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" - just what I needed more books to trip over between the skeins of yarn lining the floor of my bedroom. You, my friend, are a very bad influence.
