First of all, Julie sent me a beautiful pair of socks and I may have been bitten by the sock bug. I don't want to take them things off! Funny enough, I normally hate socks and actually am not even sure I own my own pair. I tend to pilfer Phillip's when boot time rolls around. Anyway, I mention this new sock love because on my birthday I needed some stash enhancement. I went to one of my favorite knitting stores and just grabbed for my life.
Newly acquired yarn:
Don't judge... I have plans for all of it and have managed to finish a few more projects in the last month.
For Julie, Zuzu's Petals in madtosh sport, the Dahlia colorway... This knit up quick and I will totally be making another one for me.
A pair of Malu Mitts, also in madtosh sport, this time in Charcoal.
And a Waves shawl in Malabrigo Silky Merino... again, allllll mine. I will have to take decent photographs of that after reblocking (too many yo, k2tog's to be perfect after just one block).
Anyway, I'd say 2014 is off to a great start. I am off to swatch for a Work & Shelter sweater in cotton picked up many moons ago.
