My Pretties

At midnight last night, I finished the Damnable Socks! Daughter was still up, so I handed them to her to try on, and they've not been off her feet since! I can't get a good picture, because she won't take the socks off. Guess that means they are a hit! Here's proof that I finished both socks:

Yesterday was a good mail day, and my copy of Bags: A Knitter's Dozen and In Sheep's Clothing arrived. I've not really had time to peruse either book, but soon. Today we went down to Columbia to Hook 'n Needle, and I got this lovely Cascade 220 for my Market Squares Bag:

This picture doesn't really show how gorgeous the yarn is. The colors are much richer and more jewel tone in person.

I also snagged a skein of Noro Kureyon to make a hat for husband. I recently bought a set of six hat patterns all made from one skein of Noro.

I love these colors. They are pretty yet still masculine. I've never knit with Noro and am excited about trying it.

Maureen always keeps a good discount basket (or two or three!) in her shop, and these two skeins of Kitten just begged to come home with me! They are a soft and fuzzy mohair which will make a great scarf for someone.

I don't have pictures to prove it, but I cleaned the closet/laundry room in our kitchen this morning! The closet is about 10 by 4, and I managed to get rid of 4 or 5 bags full of stuff which Salvation Army was delighted to have. I made room for husbands dye pots and some supplies and still have some room left to put the boxes with our Christmas dishes. I also got the toolbox off the dining room floor and onto a shelf. Tomorrow, perhaps I'll tackle the closet in my office!

The socks look really yummy. No wonder your daughter won't take them off.

Glad you made it to the store. Found out that sale wasn't a hardcover sale, but that didn't stop me. Are you ready for the Stashbuster Spirals? The socks are lovely.

Love those socks! The colors are great. Same about the Cascade colors. I am always drawn to bright, jewel tones. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
