No progress pics on the White Mimosa for Mom. It’s just white. And until the lace is done there’s not much to look at.
But there has been some stash enhancement around these parts. First, I got my first shipment from the Woolgirl Sock Club!!! It was such a fun package!
(Sorry the pictures are crap, my dslr is not functioning so point & shoot it is)
Included in the first package was some beautiful yarn from Missbabs, sportweight in a special colorway for club members only called ‘Waterfall’ with a pattern also called ‘Waterfall’ also by Babs. There was an adorable stitch marker, a fantastic notebook with pen for all sock club pattern/yarn notes and a little tin of chocolate mint lip balm. So yummy! All of it is just wonderful!
I also received a package from The Loopy Ewe. They had a sneakup last week and I went a little haywire ;o) I had money in my paypal account & it was calling my name.
I got 3 hanks of Fiesta’s Baby Boom sock weight merino yarn. It’s luscious and just to die for!
I also purchased 2 hanks of Shibuiknits sock; one in teal and one in brown. I plan on making their Transition Gloves with this yarn.
And of course, I can never pass up Louet Gems Sport for kids socks. Tyler’s brown bear socks were a failure out of the cotton fleece (although Trevor wears them all the time) so he gets some Bark socks.
Friday when I stopped in at Cardigan’s, our new local knit shop, I also purchased a couple items. First Colinette Jitterbug in Bright Charcoal
And 2 balls of Regia’s Kaffe Fassett Landscape yarn
(Man these pictures are terrible)
Saturday was Knit & Pearl Boutique’s First Year Anniversary party and I couldn’t leave without buying something. Of course, the cotton fleece once again screamed for me to take it home. The Wild Orange will make a perfect fall Rusted Root I think (long sleeved of course).
It’s not quite so bright in person, I don’t want to be a pumpkin after all.
Let’s see, what else has come my way that I haven’t divulged…plenty but I don’t want to list any more ;o)
I am going to work on a brioche scarf next up, once the white vest is done. Then right back to the Trapeze Jacket. I would also like to get the Joy Cardigan sewn up. If I let myself I would choose that over finishing the white monstrosity right now. I will show self control, be a good girl like I promised my mom and then spoil myself rotten knitting whatever I want, whenever I want.
