A little yarn p0rn

Well last week I went to Beaumont/Vidor and Houston to deal with family issues and I decided I needed to get me a little yarn as well. On the right is some Lion Brand Landscapes in the Rose Garden colorway and some Bernat Lana in natural that I got on sale at Hobby Lobby in Beaumont and on the left is Hunter Green Lamb's Pride Worsted and some Koigu KPPPM in a rainbowy color way from Yarns 2 Ewe in Houston. Most of the yarn is for various sock applications, Koigu for some fun sock something (I'll take suggestions), the Lana is destined to become a pair of Kilt Socks and the Lamb's Pride is for Fuzzy Feet of course! I believe I will conquer the sock monster yet - watch this space for progress on that front! I got the Landscapes because I have been eyeing it for a while and the price was right but I doubt it will become socks!

RAK'd again!

Wow those Knitty Folk are mighty cool - I got RAK'd a second time - I got a big box with Dark Chocolate goodies (truffles=yum), a Starbuck's Gift Card, Natural Wool-Ease T&Q, KnitPicks Andean Silk in Lettuce, A ball of Woolpak in Dark Purple (you can almost see it under the chocolate bar on the left of the picture), and three(!!!) balls of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush in lovely light green color. Thanks again Chrissy!

I am so A.D.D. when working on projects

Well I am still working on my Booga Bag, but I just printed out Branching Out and Fuzzy Feet as I have a hank Alpaca Cloud in Tide Pool for Branching Out and 5 or 6 skeins of Lamb's Pride Worsted in various colors for Fuzzy Feet. There is a great place to to get a Grab Bag of Lamb's Pride worsted at this site. I started a black sweater from a book I got the other day but I am only a few rows into it. I am making it out of Caron Simply Soft because that was one of the suggested yarns and I want it to be something I can wash and wear. I have a ton of other things I would like to make but need to focus and finish something I have started. Seems I have a lot of motivation to make things for other folks but never finish anything for me.
