Day Thirteen

Ok so the blogging has not been going that well but the quitting smoking has been going exceptionally well. Thirteen whole days today and I can say that yesterday was actually the best day I've had yet in terms of withdrawal etc. For a few days I was very anxious and short but that passed so hopefully things will continue. Lots has been happening on the knitting front. All the Tanis Fiber Arts Multi Sock Yarn arrived and the Dream in Color Classy in the Knitosophy colors - I'm the only shop in the whole wide world who asked for Classy in the new colors. How about that?
Here's my second Just Enough Ruffles - out of Sweet Georgia Merino Silk Aran. I got some good stretch lengthwise out of this when blocking - must be the silk. I just love it!

Finished one sock for Emma out of Dye Hard Self Striping. It's merino/cashmere/nylon and feels amazing. I love self striping yarn - the second sock goes so quickly because I just count stripes not rows! The second one is cast on and should be done today.
Linda dropped off some store samples - Cashsilk Fern in Sweet Georgia Cashsilk. Lisa and I took turns wearing it yesterday. The only thing I would change about this scarf is making it longer so I can feel more cashmere around my neck.

And finally Citron from Knitty - again another Sweet Georgia Yarn - superwash worsted. Yum!Yum!

And finally.....the beginning of Little Colonnade out of Tanis Multi in Prism. Just because I was dying to see what the yarn would do - it's so fun!

Nice finishes by both you and Linda. The new tanis sock looks very nice in the picture - I take back all the comments I made on Wednesday - maybe it was because you had so little knit up at the time.
