Stash Enhancement

One of my blog readers, or one of my friends on Ravelry recommended I look at Woolgirl's sock yarn. And boy am I glad I did. I found some really nice yarns there.

I ordered one Hazel Knits skein in the Alki Reflection colorway. Red and green and pink, what more could I ask for! I also ordered one skein of Dashing Dachs in the Lion Cub colorway. You know what I was thinking, don't you? Nanner socks! I think this one is perfect.

I couldn't have been more pleased with my purchase. She wrapped the order beautifully and enclosed some neat little extras! Thanks, Woolgirl! Can't wait until I "need" some more stash enhancement.

My co-worker has a birthday this week. I offered to take her to the LYS to pick out the yarn for another pair of socks. She really didn't want to make the trip to Utica Square, so we went online and shopped for the yarn she deemed was The One. Actually, she picked out two that were The One. So I guess she will get two pairs of socks (eventually) for her birthday. She picked Berroco yarn in two colors, a brown mix and a gray/black mix. We found them at The Loopy Ewe. I think they will be stripes, and that's what she wants. So I will happily knit them up for her. She has dainty little feet, but likes a 7" cuff.

Here is my last purchase from Knitpicks. I got these to make the Summer Pick 'n' Mix by Jane Lithgow. If you haven't seen these patterns, you can find them on Ravelry. I am still looking for some yellow, but it has to be just the right shade. I'm looking for a solid that is the color of butter. Then I'm going to mix and match the solids to make some of these cute socks.

B&B, my dogs, haven't done anything cute this week. The big guy said they were playing in the sprinkler today, but he didn't take any pics. Maybe later...
